Experience Tyrol - A Land with Many Faces
Holiday in the Middle of the Alps
In Tyrol you will find the most 3,000-metre peaks and glaciers in Austria. But Tyrol has much more to offer: Would you like to rest at a beautiful mountain lake after your hike? And drink a glass of buttermilk from the farmer's wife? Or in winter, after an extensive day of skiing in one of the many modern ski resorts, taste some Tyrolean delicacies? Bacon dumpling soup, Tyrolean Gröstl or Kaiserschmarren - enjoyment has many facets in Tyrol.
Big Five on the Farm
Ready, steady, go! A safari is about to begin. With lions and giraffes? No, quite wrong. We will go on a safari on an Austrian farm. Plenty of animals are waiting for you in the barn, in the stables and on the pastures.
Cattle is grazing on the meadows, horses are galloping through the open fields, hens are cackling, pigs are grunting and sheep are looking as fluffy as you could possibly imagine. Let’s get to meet them!
How the mountains came into the world
...BECAUSE WHO ACTUALLY SAYS THAT THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HERE?
Oh horror, the mountains are gone! Nothing but yawning emptiness in the Icy Heights, the place where they are at home. So Schlimper Klimper, the guardian of the mountains, sets off on an adventurous journey into the world to look for them. Will he find them and will they return with him? This children's book is a tribute to the imagination of children who experience the world as a place of wonder and mystery.
The children's book was supported by Urlaub am Bauernhof in Tirol and is accessible and available to all from the end of March/beginning of April. Feel free to check out the website and get the first impressions!
