Where to stay and what to do in St Johann Tyrol
When is the best time to visit?

While high up in the mountains, the skiing areas still offer fun in the snow come Springtime (March, April, and May) sees the valleys below already starting to blossom, inviting visitors to pleasant walks and bicycle tours.  Spring is a beautiful time to visit, but so is every other month.  Winter time for the snow and summer for the lush green surroundings.  Fall has its very own beauty. Pretty much any time of the year is the best time to visit.

Why do we love going in Spring?  You can still get in the last ski runs for the season while you might be fortunate enough to see fields of wild crocus flowers and beautiful cherry tree blossoms in April.  Let’s face it, the Tiroler Oberland area is stunning and definitely worth a visit.
