Aspen is a very walkable town rich in culture, history, a wide variety of shops, restaurants, bars, art centers, parks and the charm of small mountain town. All of our Town Attractions listed below are a 4-14 minute walk from your room at the Tyrolean Lodge. If walking is not your thing, we have free bikes to help you get around, or you may opt for Aspen’s free ride service called the Downtowner.
