Passing-by at Tirol, Austria

while entering Reutte in Tirol Austria. I took this photo last August 2006 during our vacation at Allgaue, Germany. Me and my husband decided to pass this way on our way to Garmisch-Partenkirchen which is quite a long way.. but I'm happy to see this place..so no regrets driving for too long!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyrol_(state)

Tyrol (German: Tirol) is a state or Bundesland, located in the west of Austria. It comprises the Austrian part of the historical region of Tyrol. The state is split into two parts - called North Tyrol and East Tyrol - by a 20km-wide strip of land where the state of Salzburg borders directly on the Italian Province of Bolzano-Bozen (Alto Adige/South Tyrol).

North Tyrol borders Bavaria (Germany) in the north, the state of Vorarlberg in the west, Italy and Switzerland in the south and Salzburg in the east. East Tyrol also borders Carinthia in the east.

The highest mountain in the state is the Großglockner in the Hohe Tauern, with an elevation of 3,798 m (12,461 ft.). This is second only to the highest mountain of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, the Ortler, 3,905 m (12,812 ft.).

The capital is Innsbruck. The town is known for its university, especially the modern techniques in medicine. Tyrol is popular for its famous skiing resorts, such as Kitzbühel, Ischgl or St. Anton. Other larger towns are Kufstein, Schwaz, Reutte and Landeck.
