The Kaiserhof Ellmau – home from home

  Helene’s mother grew up in Ellmau which is 20 minutes from Kufstein, so it is a special place for the family. Located at the end of a country lane and right next to the piste is the 5 star Superior Kaiserhof Hotel and we had the pleasure of staying in this gourmet and elegant […]


Das Sieben – the health retreat

  Our next partner hotel is a health retreat located in the “spa town” of Bad Häring, which is close to Helene’s hometown Kufstein. Following the discovery of a sulphur source in 1951, health tourism was born. Das Sieben is a health hotel, but not a clinic. There is a range of therapies and packages […]


Husky Sledding in Tirol

  Winter is finally here, which brings me a lot of excitement. In England, we would get maybe two weeks of snow and that’s it. In that time the chaos would start; public transport would not be able to cope and there would be many problems that followed – this is with only 5cm of […]

The Gradonna Mountain Resort

  Located in Kals, Osttirol, the Gradonna is about three hours drive from Innsbruck. The journey passed quickly because of the epic views en-route. The Gradonna is a secluded hideaway at 1,350 metres above sea level, where everything is effortless. There is a choice of hotel rooms, suites and chalets that can sleep up to […]


Mountain love with a Riedel wine decanter – February highlight product

  Next month’s highlight product is very special. Mouth-blown and handmade in Kufstein by expert glassmakers, the Riedel Bliss decanter is unique and fantastic for sharing wine and other drinks. February is the month of love, so a heart elegantly pressed into this glass is perfectly reflecting this. No decanter is exactly the same and […]


New Year’s Eve in Innsbruck

  For many reasons, this year has been extremely tough for Helene and me and the people around us. I think this has been a strange year with lots of negativity for many people. So I have to say, I’m happy to see the end of it. Looking on the bright side, both my sisters […]

The normal (naked) sauna experience

  I had never experienced the proper way of enjoying a sauna before moving to Austria. A mate of mine had a sauna in his parents’ house, which I went in a couple of times as a teenager. Of course we were wearing our swim shorts. There was a sauna in my gym in England […]


Giesswein for the slopes – January highlight product

  Winter has arrived and Giesswein will prepare you for it. We haven’t had a dump of snow for a few weeks now in Innsbruck, but it is bitterly cold. Any moment now, everywhere in the city will be covered in fluffy white snow and the slopes will be ready for you. As seen in […]


Tirolean bacon and luxury salmon strudel recipe

  Many years ago, Helene (co-founder of Tirol Box) came up with this recipe. It has never been written down or shared, this is an exclusive for the Tirol Box blog. Whenever Helene came to England for Christmas or parties, she would make her legendary strudel. After the first party, friends and family would look […]


High quality products from Tirol

  Transparency, authenticity and high quality are very important to Tirol Box, our suppliers and ultimately our customers. We searched the region of Tirol for the high quality products that feature in Tirol Box. To begin with, we were not sure if there was a big enough variety to fill our boxes, but there was. […]


Chrystal: natural products utilising the power of the mountains

How we discovered Chrystal We were in Alpbachtal on a wellness holiday at the lovely Alpbacherhof. Here we were introduced to Chrystal’s sister brand Alpienne, in the spa area of the hotel. We were also given a free arnica hand cream as a gift in our room. Immediately we could sense that there was no […]


Alpenschick and Swarovski Christmas gifts – December highlight products

Winter in just around the corner, here in Innsbruck we already feel it with the mountain tops glistening with fresh snow. The magic of Christmas fills the air as the sun sets early and the decorative lights begin to shine in town. For the December Tirol Box, our theme is Sparkling Christmas, so we of […]


November 2016 Revealed. Your monthly subscription box from Tirol.

  Helene and I are very proud to reveal our very first Tirol Box. For our main box, every month has a different theme, thus new Tirolean products related to that theme. Tirol Box basic is for your daily essentials and is not themed, but each month’s box will have a different selection of high-quality […]


We ship from Innsbruck, Tirol to 12 European countries

The original idea of Tirol Box is to share high-quality products from Tirol, with those who do not have access to them, so initially we wanted to ship to the whole world. Unfortunately we do not ship to all countries because this is not feasible for us.  Tirollywood We knew that there are many Bollywood movies shot […]


Glass design from Virgen, Tirol

  Glass design and painting is not something I come across every day. But there are some excellent creators out there doing some fantastic work like Alois Berger and his company Glasdesign-Berger in Virgen. In July 2016, the weather was good. A little cloudy to begin with, then the sun came out mid morning. It’s […]

Feel Cosy at Home with Giesswein

Autumn has begun, the leaves on the trees change to red, yellow and brown. The sun sets sooner and the mountain air chills the valley earlier each night. Winter is on the horizon and there is nothing like a cuddly evening at home with the chimney on, a warm drink in hand and the wonderful […]

Moving to the Innsbruck mountains, Tirol

Why did I move to the Innsbruck mountains? Let me explain from the beginning… I was born in Hemel Hempstead, England in 1984. I went to University in Southampton from 2002 to 2006 and pretty much lived there the whole time. In 2009, I went travelling to Australia and ended up staying there for a […]
