LIVING IN WATTENS / TYROL / AUSTRIA
Wattens combines the best of the modern and the traditional, as well as the best of the rural and the urban. Even while you are surrounded by nature, you will be at the heart of a vibrant community with rich local traditions, a great music scene, and a number of different festivals.
People come from near and far to spend time in the village and the surrounding area. While here, many visit the Swarovski Kristallwelten to experience crystal in art and culture as well as to discover our heritage. The whole region is a major tourist attraction, with breathtaking natural scenery, picturesque villages, and towns and cities steeped in history to explore.
Biking, hiking, skiing, outdoor swimming: Tyrol offers exceptional opportunities for getting involved in sports and leisure activities. Whatever your passion, you will find that some of the best places to get active are right on your doorstep.
And at the same time it is always easy to get away from it all: the cities of Innsbruck (15 minutes by car), Munich (1,5 hours by car), Bolzano (2 hours by car) and Zurich (3 hours by car) are within easy reach, and many European capitals are just a few hours away by plane, car, or train.
