Innsbruck - the perfect mix of big city flair and skiing holiday!
Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol, lies at an altitude of 575 m and has a very nice historical district, as well as a comprehensive cultural programme. Surrounded by the imposing mountain backdrop lies Innsbruck, between the northern range of the Karwendel mountains and the foothills of the Alpine mountain range. It's wonderful to stroll through the lovely streets and narrow lanes here. Sights such as the "Goldene Dachl", a late-gothic bay window laid with 2,657 gilded copper plates, the "Annasäule" column, the Hofburg or a trip to the famous Bergisel jump should not be missed! Ideal and unique for all skiing fans in the cities in alpine regions: public transport easily and conveniently brings you from the inner city to the ski area located only a few kilometres away!Ski
With the lift pass ''Glungezer',' you have access to 23 km of piste and 7 lifts between 950 m and 2,304 m altitude. The bijou, well-known amongst nature lovers, is situated approx. 15 km away from Innsbruck. The access point to the ski area is to the be found in Tulfes. The well-prepared pistes wind through the marvellous landscape and offer great runs for skiers and snowboarders alike. From the peak at 2,677 m, this ski area offers an excellent view of the gorgeous Inntal Valley and the peaks of the Nordkette.
One of the highlights on the Glungezer is one of the longest runs in Tyrol that, with its length of 15 km, demands a great deal of condition. But also the deep power snow areas and a diverse snow park invite you to explore a ski area that is regarded as an insider's tip despite its proximity to Innsbruck.
At the edge of the pistes, rustic huts and a cosy restaurant on the Halsmarter lure in skiers for a pit-stop. When you're looking to experience a special mountain- and nature adventure, we recommend the ascent via a ski tour route up to the "Glungezer Hütte".
Innsbruck has a very diverse après ski and recreational programme on offer. Be it party or culture, here everyone will find the right thing. Huts and restaurants invite you in to stop off whilst skiing, and numerous bars, discos and clubs turn the night to day. Boarders meet in "Jimmy's", and "Plan B", and the disco" Plateau" or the trendy bar "Jolly" are also favourite spots. Those who prefer it more upscale can enjoy this city’s amenities, such as concerts, galleries and stage shows.
The Maria-Theresien Street with its boutiques, shops and coffee houses is best for shopping. Sporting establishments such as a bowling alley, indoor pools, natural and artificial ice skating rinks, a climbing wall or even a tobogganing run are available. A visit to the crystal world in Wattens or a city tour, with its many-faceted cultural sights such as the Ambras Castle, the Hofburg, the Bergisel jump or the famous golden roof, are definitely worth a day-trip!
You prefer cross-country to downhill skiing? No problem! The total region offers a trail network of 87 km! With the free cross-country bus you can easy get from A to B. The trails lead through urban areas and idyllic holiday villages, via high Alpine landscapes, right up to the glacier at the end of the valley. 40 km of tracks can be found around Innsbruck, in Rinn and Mutters/Natters.
In Gries im Sellrain you can even enjoy your hobby at a later hour during night cross-country skiing. This 1 km long trail is also suitable for beginners, so that every cross-country skiing type can experience this highlight.
Additionally, there are 65 km of skating trails in the region and you have the opportunity to be trained professionally. So everybody who is interested in this northern type of sports will get his money's worth!
