As everyone knows the main range of the Alps consists mainly of primitive rock. A geological peculiarity, however, is a stretch of marble (consisting of crystalline limestone) that extends from Hintertux south to the Spannagelhaus.
Located in this marble is the Spannagel Cave network with its numerous natural wonders.
For many visitors, their first look through a telescope is an unforgettable experience. The cloud bands of Jupiter, sparkling clusters of stars, Saturn"s ring and galaxies millions of light years away.
Lean back in the Planetarium and see the first stars that appear as twilight falls. Lose yourself in a cloud of music and forget about your everyday worries. As the last rays of light disappear, the stars shine from the darkness in their natural splendour.
A visit to the Tratzberg castle, situated in the Tyrolian lower-Inn-valley will not only leave a lasting impression on interested adults, but will result in an unforgettable experience for children.
Visitors will be taken on a journey through time in a modern and surprising way.
The tobogganing fun in the Zillertal Valley inspires not only the kids: fun, action and speed await you on the first Alpine rollercoaster in the Zillertal Valley.
The 1,450 m of coaster fun begins right at the Zillertal Arena Valley Station in Zell and promises to be the biggest summer and winter attraction with its many waves, steep curves and jumps. A 360° loop and a 540° loop will get adrenaline pumping even more.
Achenseebahn & Achenseeschifffahrt
The impressive Achensee with its jade-green waters is Tyrol's largest lake. The lake is 9km long and 1km wide. In summer you can go on a boat-trip on the waters of the lake while in winter there is the possibility to ice-skate on the then frozen surface.
A locomotive whistling, hissing and steaming valves, pistons pounding: this is the Achensee train. A ride on this train is an unforgettable and romantic experience.
