Mountains are not only prominent geological features that provide a magnificent playground for a great variety of summer and winter activities but they are also outstanding in regard to the distinct cultures that they have brought forth. The traces of these alpine cultures can be visited in just a short walk (or a small excursion) from our hotel: learn how bacon is smoked in the Zillertal and explore all its different tastes (Zillertaler Speckstube). Be welcomed by the smell of cheese in the Alpine dairy in Fügen and learn how milk is processed (Sennerei Fügen). Stroll through the outdoor farm museum and follow the traces of Tyrolean farm culture in Kramsach (Höfemuseum Kramsach). Be lured into the marvellous Swarovski Crystal Worlds and its endless trails of shimmering surprises (Swarovski Kristallwelten). Find out how timber is processed in the Zillertal, smell all its different kinds, and enjoy the panoramic view from the factory’s very own SichtBAR. And then feel how natural, cultural, technological, and culinary pleasures are inseparable in the Austrian Alps.
