There are daily low-cost flights into Innsbruck throughout the winter season catering for those taking family ski holidays in the Tirol, plus standard flights year-round. For trains to the region, see our Austria page.

The Tirol is an easy place to negotiate with a hire car – Innsbruck is in the centre, with the A12 autobahn running east-west the length of the valley with mountains rising on either side.
