Offering marvellous views, Tirol is one of Austria’s top winter and summer destinations. Located in the westernmost part of the country, the region is an ideal base from which to enjoy thrilling winter sports, networks of mountain footpaths and historic castles. Not surprisingly, hotels in Tirol are some of the best in Austria, with everything from serene lakefront settings to boutique rooms with traditional charm. What’s more, they’re all bookable with Culture Trip.

1. DasPosthotel, for ski-adjacent accommodations in Zillertal

With the Zillertal ski area only a few minutes away, the family-run DasPosthotel is the perfect place to chillax after a day on the slopes. Guest rooms are rustic chic showcasing local wood and outfitted with bold and colourful textiles. The atmospheric spa is a must, as is a swim in the year-round solar-heated pool in the middle of the garden. The restaurant’s creative Austrian cuisine is always inspired by the season.

2. Der Lärchenhof, for unlimited recreational activities near Kitzbühel

In these parts, Alpine-chic style is nothing new, however, Der Lärchenhof wears it particularly well. The fact that it’s a sports and spa hotel sort of says it all — along with a spa, it has its own golf course, tennis courts, fitness centre and Alpine and cross-country ski areas. Light-filled rooms and suites abound with stone and wood accents and include balconies overlooking the impressively expansive property.

3. Romantik Resort & SPA Der Laterndl Hof, for a lakefront setting in Haldensee

Besides the serene lakefront setting, the Romantik Resort & SPA Der Laterndl features imposing Tirolean scenes as far as the eye can see. Apart from the location, the 32 junior suites and four idyllic tower units are lined in stone pine and all have sweeping lake views, while the onsite spa is well worth a visit. Summer visitors have their pick of high-valley hiking and biking routes amidst the natural backdrop.

4. Stage 12, for an urban stopover in Innsbruck

The street-facing Stage 12 hotel in Innsbruck’s old quarter (a car-free pedestrian zone) may be housed in a historic building, yet there’s nothing old fashioned about it. Not one of the 120 rooms is the same, although they do have something in common: they’re modern, hip and surprisingly quiet. Cool and casual, the Stage Bar is a hub of activity almost nightly. where friendly mixologists create signature drinks served up with fresh rosemary, truffle or chilli popcorn.

5. NALA individuellhotel, for a quiet respite in Innsbruck

NALA individuellhotel is only a ten-minute walk from the train station and just steps from Innsbruck’s public transport, so it’s easy to explore this fascinating city. The 20 rooms are decorated in delightful – and sometimes cheeky themes – and no two are remotely alike. At breakfast, dine on homemade jams, bread and cakes (worth getting up for) and throughout the day enjoy drinks, snacks and light meals at the bar or in the Asian-inspired water garden.

6. ElisabethHotel, for a Tirol spa holiday in Mayrhofen

The perfect starting point for discovering the real Innsbruck, Hotel Grauer Bär is nothing if not conveniently located in the middle of this vibrant city. Rooms and suites, which are functionally modern, come with something not every hotel has: workable windows that open to let the sunshine in. For the astounding skyline views, however, you’ll need to head to the fifth floor to soak in the jacuzzi or take a swim in the glass-enclosed, 45sqm (484sqft) pool.

8. ERIKA boutiquehotel, for timeless charm in Kitzbühel

Just to the south of Innsbruck on a sunny plateau, Hotel Seppl is a tram ride from Austria’s Alpine metropolis. The Seppl is ideal for athletic types, given that biking is a large part of its identity and reputation. And speaking of cyclists: resident chef Bernard is a true, two-wheel enthusiast — that is when he’s not preparing regional, locally sourced dishes for guests.
