Tirol is a land,covered by mountains , so the main macro structure are the valleys. It is split in two by the river Inn, that runs almost through all its length. The upper part of the Inn valley , close to its source is called Oberinntal or translated means "Upper Unn valley". The Inn is born in Switzerland, but enters Tirol by the village of Pfunds,where it is still a small waterway. On its path through Tirol ,it collects the water of the side valleys to form a wide river that arrives by Germany and more specifically Bavaria,serving as a natural border between both lands.

I can say I lived in all 3 out of 4 parts of tirol - tirol west, tirol middle and tirol east and Visited Lienz in Ost Tirol for a day.
Tirol east has lower mountains than the other parts. Peaks are around 2000m. Kufstein is the biggest town of the area ,Kitzbuhel its most famous resort.
Tirol mitte or middle is the area around Innsbruck - the capital of the province.
Tirol West has as its biggest towns Landeck and Imst
