The Stubaital’s central location is perfect for discovering Tyrol’s numerous sights and trip destinations and for experiencing culture and history up close. The diverse range of concerts and events, and the traditional festivals and customs will bring a lot of additional variety and facets to your active holiday in the Stubaital. As well as the state capital Innsbruck with its rich history, the nearby town of Hall in Tirol is also a thoroughly worthwhile trip destination. This medieval town boasts the best-preserved and biggest old quarter in Austria. Whether in summer, when idyllic gardens invite one to linger a while, or in winter on a visit to
the romantic Christkindl market: Hall in Tirol is an enchanting place at any time of year for strolling, enjoying, shopping and enjoying culture. The town’s striking Münzturm, or Coin Tower, is now home to a popular museum. Here you can marvel at a globally unique roller minting machine, the world’s first thalers, and many other details of the history of coins in Europe. Make the effort to climb up the tower to enjoy the beautiful view of Hall’s old quarter and of the Inntal up to the Karwendel mountain range. Also, you don’t have to go far to experience pure culinary pleasure. Some businesses in Stubai invite you to sample products from the
region on site. Like the Stubaier Bienenhaus apiary in Neustift, where you can learn everything about the work of beekeepers and bees, and buy honey from the Stubaital as a souvenir. It is also possible to go on a guided tour of a distillery, including a schnapps tasting, in Fulpmes. Also located in Fulpmes is the Schlickeralm show dairy, where you can taste dairy products, from butter to Tyrolean gray cheese, with home-made farmhouse bread. We wish you lots of pleasure on your trips!
