Beautiful mountain scenery, attractive Tyrolean villages and wonderful traditional cuisine
South of Innsbruck among the green meadows of the Gschnitzal Valley lies Trins, a charming village with authentic Tyrolean buildings and easy access to some wonderful walking. On our journey through ancient villages filled with onion-domed churches, we learn why Tyroleans are so justifiably proud of their homeland, and we enjoy wonderful views across this mountainous paradise.
Making use of the ski-lifts and efficient local buses, we can reach the summit of Nosslachjoch (2231m) or enjoy a scenic walk to Obernbergersee Lake (1600m) where we see St Nikolaus Church perched on a hill in the middle of the valley. Thanks to such a large of variety of walks, two grades are offered each day, with a different leader escorting each grade.
Based in our welcoming and comfortable hotel, we enjoy many sumptuous courses of traditional Tyrolean cuisine including the renowned Knodel (dumplings) and Grostl (roasted potatoes).
