#3 The Tyrol
If it hasn't stopped altogether, time has at least adopted a slower pace in this region of rugged mountains and alpine meadows. In both dress and custom, Tyroleans cling to the old ways. There is, for example, no hotel experience quite like a country hotel stay in the mountains of Tyrol, where the old customs of warm hospitality, traditionally dressed staff, gracious dining, and oversized, comfortable accommodations, recall the days of the Habsburg Empire. The region is full of charming old villages and resorts as well as some of the best mountain drives in our coverage area. Try, for example, the road from Reutte southeast through Lermoos, Ehrwald, Telfs, Msern, Seefeld, then north to the German border.
