Tiroler Oberland

The Tyrolean Oberland with the villages Ried, Prutz, Pfunds, Spiss and Tösens is an ideal starting point for wonderful alpine tours due to its central location in the border triangle Austria-Switzerland-Italy. Well over 30 pass roads are within easy reach and can be reached by day trips.

The Tiroler Oberland lies in the southwest of Austria in the area of the districts Imst and Landeck. In the south it borders Switzerland and Italy.

The best time to travel is from April to October.

The maximum speed is 50 km/h in urban areas, 100 km/h outside urban areas and 130 km/h on motorways.

A vignette is mandatory on highways and motorways. They are available at Austrian motorway service stations and at petrol stations close to the border in neighbouring countries. The ten-day vignette costs 5.30 euros for motorcycles, 13.40 euros for two months and an annual vignette costs 35,50 euros.

The blood-alcohol limit is 0.5, and fines of 300 euros or more are to be expected. From 0.8 per mill alcohol content in the blood, it costs at least 800 euros and there is a risk of a driver's license being revoked.

Warning vests are not mandatory for motorcyclists, but a first aid kit must be carried.

The helmet must comply with ECE standard 22-05.
