Region Hall-Wattens

Nature and culture are closely connected in Hall-Wattens. The Swarovski Crystal Worlds, the charming oldtown and the former coin mint in Hall as well as the Marienbasilika church in Absam are all examples of popular cultural sites that attract many visitors. These are set against the fabulous natural backdrop of the craggy Karwendel Mountains, the gently rolling Inn Valley and the Tux Alps. This combination of urban and alpine makes the Hall-Wattens region the perfect partner for the UCI Road World Championships in September 2018.

Both amateur cruisers and ambitious climbers will appreciate the fantastic natural surroundings that the Hall-Wattens region has to offer. All in all there are around 150 kilometres of road riding catering for all ages and abilities, from energy-sapping ascents into the mountains to gentler loops around and over the rolling green foothills.

One of the most impressive highlights in the region is the Karwendel Nature Park, dominated by the steep rockfaces of the Karwendel Mountains. With their fabulous views and excellent roads, the Tux Alps are also ideal for roadbiking.

During the 2018 UCI World Road Championships the Hall-Wattens region will host the start of the Women’s Elite Individual Time Trial (ITT). The course starts at the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens and leads around the Hall-Wattens region before finishing in the regional capital Innsbruck.
