Estate Agents Say…
“Close to Munich, Tyrol is ideal for those looking for a quieter state that isn’t far from a bustling nightlife.”
The nearest airport is Innsbruck airport. It’s well connected with flights from Austrian Airlines, British Airways, Lufthansa, AirBerlin and other airlines.
The major train station is in Innsbruck, which is quick to reach from Vienna (4 hours) and Munich, with trains, including the OBB InterCity routes, running daily.
If you’re taking the motorway to Tyrol, you’ll need a Vignette (toll sticker) on your windscreen.
Salzburger Land and the Tyrol have historically been dominated by German buyers, thanks to its location. In recent years, though, the rise of affordable air travel has brought in a growing number of international house-hunters. Today, the biggest groups of buyers of Austrian real estate on TheMoveChannel.com are from the UK, followed by Canada, Austria and the USA.
Holiday homes and condos are the order of the day, as lifestyle buyers look for affordable bargains near ski slopes and investors seek rental yields. Restrictions on foreign ownership, though, mean that not all international buyers can own property in the region.
