Description

The beautiful mountains of the Austrian Tirol are legendary for good reason; they rise startlingly out of bright, green meadows and are home to some fabulous scrambles. The peaks listed here are some of the most famous in the region and while some are merely tough walks, others are serious (albeit not particularly technical) glaciated mountaineering routes.

Every summit in the Tirol feels special because they are all home to huge metal crosses and epic views, but these 10 are particularly meaningful simply because they look so good and are so well known! For summit baggers and bar-room braggers, this list is the ultimate Tirolian ticklist.
