Plan Your Innsbruck, Tirol, and Vorarlberg Vacation

The provinces of Tirol and Vorarlberg make up the western tip of Austria with Innsbruck, the capital of Tirol, the natural, historic, and economic center. These two provinces are so different from the rest of Austria that you might think you've crossed a border, and in a way you have. The frontier between Tirol and Salzburg to the east is defined by mountains; four passes routed over them are what make access possible. To the west of Tirol lies Vorarlberg; as its name implies, it's "before the Arlberg"—the massive Alps.
