Come and discover one of the most beloved summer holiday regions. Innsbruck and its surroundings offer an appealing mix of a simultaneously historic and modern city along with impressive mountain landscapes that bedazzle with their mountain peaks, tranquil nature walkways, and thrilling cycle paths. Indeed, Innsbruck is famous for being a ‘hike and bike city’, as it offers numerous extended routes inside and outside of the city. Surrounding Innsbruck are sunny highlands and fantastic, traditional Tyrolean villages ready to be discovered. If you are so inclined, discover one of the many museums nearby. For example, by visiting a Renaissance castle or modern art at the famous Swarovski Crystal Worlds. Moreover, consider visiting the Nordkette, the mountain range which dominates Innsbruck from the North, and is a well-known and appreciated destination for sporting and casual excursions. The Nordkette is also home to the Alpenzoo, a local favorite and one of the highest elevation zoos in all of Europe.
Innsbruck is considered to be the “capital city of the Alps”, and is therefore a favorite destination for skiers, snowboarders and winter sports lovers alike. Innsbruck and its neighboring areas offer a fantastic Tyrolean alpine scenery with 9 ski resorts, where you can breathe in the pure mountain air and ski or snowboard the many slopes these mountains have to offer. Immerse yourself in a world of sports, history, traditions, liveliness, relaxation and good food. Our house is a just few minutes away from the ski schools where you can learn, practice or rent your desired equipment. Only 5 minutes away by car, or by the public bus, are the renowned Patscherkofel mountain slopes, home to events in both the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics. In addition to the fantastic options for skiing, snowboarding, and sledding, mountain lovers can refresh themselves and enjoy Tyrolean cuisine in the Gasthäuser (restaurants) and Alms (alpine inns) of the area.
Both in winter and in summertime, the city of Innsbruck offers a range of wonderful opportunities for travelers. Innsbruck is a city that does not feel overwhelmingly large, and yet retains a sense of liveliness and tranquility not typical of many other cities. Those who spend the summer in Innsbruck can enjoy various historical and tourist attractions in the city, including the famous Goldenes Dachl (the Golden Roof) in the city center, an essential stop for every visitor. For the lovers of nightlife there are many events scheduled in the summer months including festivals, concerts, theater performances and initiatives put on by the bars and pubs of the inner city.
If you love winter, come and discover the “fairytale” atmospheres of the Innsbruck Christmas markets, which have become an indispensable stop for all visitors, starting from around end-November to January.
