After our first briefing we set off to cruise through the beautiful Tyrolian Country side. The contrast of the green valley and the rough mountains accompany us through the Leutasch valley towards Mittenwald. Leaving the Alps the roads lead around and over hills, through small towns where we see typical mural paintings on the houses. In charming villages we find blue and white colored posts, usually located at the market square. Take the time to stop and try to find out the meaning of these posts. We pass by lakes, remnants of the ice age that formed this area about 15.000 years ago. The Kesselberg between Walchensee and Kochel used to be a place for road races many years ago. The monastery of Benediktbeuern invites us to take a break in its beautiful beer garden. Continuing through the lovely Bavarian countryside we can visit one of the world famous castles – Linderhof - before we return “home”.
To Tegernsee, Wallberg, Achenpass, Austria – Wattens, a factory tour at Swarovsky….
…. to the heights of Haimingerberg with its holy day castle (Ferienschlössl), and the rafting and canyoning paradise of the Imst and Inn rivers.
Swarovski Crystal World Trip
Swarovski crystal is a popular collectors' item and visitors come from all over the world to visit the Swarovski Crystal World in Wattens (or, to give it its proper name, the Swarovski Kristallwelten).
The Crystal World was opened in 1995 to commemorate the centenary of the company founded by Daniel Swarovski, a Bohemian immigrant.
Nowadays the company makes high quality optical equipment, industrial crystal and high fashion items - as well as the famous collectors' pieces.
Contrary to the impressions of some visitors, the Swarovski Crystal World does not offer a "tour around the factory" or reveal any manufacturing secrets. Rather the exhibition is based around various artists' visions inspired by the idea of crystal.
Members of the Swarovski Crystal Society receive free admission to the exhibition and a glass of bubbly in the VIP lounge.
The tour through the installation finishes in a showroom highlighting the range of products - and, of course, offering them for sale. Bus trips to the Swarvoski Crystal World are often combined with trips to Hall, Rattenberg or Alpbach. Slightly closer access to Swarovski products is available from the Seefeld plateau at the big Swarovski shop in the Innsbruck old town.
Loop to Silvretta, Austria
This day again takes us into the most western part of Austria. After leaving the river Inn valley in Landeck we quickly reach the turn off into the Paznaun. A few villages of this region, achieved sad infamy in February 1999, specially Galtür where an avalanche destroyed half of the town. A very beautiful road leads us across the Bieler Höhe into the Montafon. The Silvretta Hochalpenstraße is privately owned by the Ill-Power Plant, the biggest electricity plant of Vorarlberg. We descend turn after turn into the Montafon and after a pleasant ride we reach Bludenz. For those who had enough twisties on the Silvretta road and want to be back at our hotel early you can take the short cut across the Arlberg.
Loop to Timmelsjock, Ötztal and Sölden
After a short ride West we turn South entering the Ötztal. The road runs through pleasant pine woods among piles of debris brought down from the river. Chestnut trees, maize and apricot orchards in the area of Ötz show that the Ötztal corridor running South benefits from the warm wind, called Föhn. Passing the ski resort of Sölden we start the climb to the end of the valley towards Timmelsjoch. Only open during the summertime, the pass also offers spectacular views on both the Austrian and Italian sides of the road.
