Welcome to Innsbruck


Internationally known as the “Capital of the Alps,” two-­time host of the Winter Olympic Games (in 1964 and 1976), and one of the greatest ski cities in the world, the capital city of the Austrian Tyrol is just that – a city. That it just happens to be surrounded by some of the best skiing in Austria makes it a premier destination for those who seek a broader European experience than simply skiing. Nestled into a narrow valley beneath rugged mountain peaks, it offers both beauty and culture with Old­-World charm, rich museums and galleries with easy access to the country’s world-­class ski resorts.

Stay in the city and sample a wide variety of 9 ski resorts to get an idea of where to spend more time next season.

With its Olympia SkiWorld (9 ski areas) the Innsbruck skiing region is ranked among the top winter sport resorts in the Alps.

Your Innsbruck Ski Vacation

Among them Igls and Mutters will appeal to the novice and intermediate skiers with long, wide-­open trails; Patscherkofel at 7,490 feet and Nordpark, which is reached by a series of lifts at the edge of town, offers steep, challenging runs for the more advanced skiers; Axamer Lizum, expanded for the 1976 Olympics, has a wide variety of trails for everyone, especially the Women's Downhill Course which is a favorite of intermediate skiers; Stubai Glacier, with 18 lifts, 35 miles of well-groomed and marked runs and a vertical drop of 4,790 feet guarantees great skiing year round. Other new resorts are Schlick 2000, Rangger Köpfl and Kühtai (the highest ski area of Austria).

The famous cross­-country area Seefeld is within easy reach. Other close by activities include sleigh rides and tobogganing or an exciting ride on the Olympic Bobsled run. Innsbruck's night­life, shopping, museums and more will keep you busy after skiing. You may also enjoy some of the daily excursions to Vienna, Venice, Salzburg, Bavarian Castles, Kitzbühel and St. Anton available to all guests of Innsbruck. Situated on a plateau overlooking the Inn Valley and the Olympic town of Innsbruck, Igls offers the refined atmosphere, the alpine hospitality and modern comfort the connoisseur is looking for.

Located at the foot of the Patscherkofel, Igls offers proximity for alpine and cross-country skiing. Nearby Innsbruck (3 miles) offers all the shopping and entertainment of a lively city. Gateway: Munich.
