Winter in Tirol

A family-run hotel in Obsteig with included winter activities

The Tirol is one of the world’s premier areas for winter holidays in terms of facilities, hotels and stupendous mountain scenery. You would expect high winter prices but flights to Innsbruck and the relative quietness of periods outside school holidays has created an opportunity for a special midweek tariff. Stay in the traditional Tirolean village of Obsteig during the Christmas season or in January when the snow is at its most profuse, or alternatively, in February and March when the weather is sunnier. The village lies on a high Alpine plateau, surrounded by mountains, above the Inn Valley and less than one hour’s drive from Innsbruck. The affluence of Tirol from its silver and copper mines led Habsburg Emperor Maximilian I (c.1490) to designate Innsbruck as imperial capital. The Hofkirche (Court Church) contains his cenotaph including one of the finest works of German Renaissance sculpture. The Hofburg (Imperial Palace) was remodelled in Baroque and Rococo style by Empress Maria Theresa. Bergisel hill, site of the Olympic ski-jump, is where the Tiroleans defeated Napoleon.
