The specials of the Region Tyrol are the International Mountaineering Week, organized since 1973 and the "Zillertaler Huettenabend", a three days lasting friendship event each fall with guests from more than 40 different branches from all over Europe.

This is Austria, Tyrol is the second from left

In our neighbourhood you find the Region Vorarlberg in the West, the Region Salzburg in the East, the Region South Tyrol in the South and the Region Bavaria in the North

Helping people who are in need is the aim of the Imst Branch. Besides yearly direct actions the support of kids from Tschernobyl who come to Tyrol for recreation is the most important. Members collect clothings and toys for the kids.


In 1996 the Region Tyrol consolidated the contacts to the foreign neighbours. This was the birth of the INTER ALPS MEETING, which is arranged once a year. This was the start of the first common event in the Alps region, the INTER POLICE ARTE, an art exhibition of IPA members.

Being a police officer is more than writing tickets and reports. The Region Tyrol organizes the first art exhibition of IPA members in the Inter Alps Region - the INTER POLICE ARTE 1998. Have a look at the beautiful pictures and sculptures.

Once more it was an idea of our president Wolfgang Wippler: The INTER POLICE RAD 2000. IPA members from Bavaria, Tyrol and South Tyrol/Trentino make a bycicle tour from north to south. The collected money will be spent  for victims of war mines.
