Culture & history at the foothills of multiple ski areas - Innsbruck is remarkable.

Snowflake

Innsbruck is a vibrant city located in the heart of the Alps. There are endless bars, shops and restaurants serving its 130K population and the many visitors who flock to Innsbruck. The Old Town of Innsbruck is wonderfully atmospheric whilst modern, roof-top terraces open up the sensational vistas. Inbound access both to Innsbruck and the local skiing is incredible. There is an international airport on the western edge of the city, whilst the ski lifts are around 4 miles from the arrivals hall of the airport.

Located at the cross-roads of major valleys, Innsbruck has towering mountains to the north and south, whilst just to the south, the glaciers on the Italian border loom. There are few locations more dramatic than Innsbruck. It is the administrative capital of the Tirol with a fantastic quality of services. The range of activities are impressive with a wide choice of action and cultural pursuits possible.

INNSBRUCK SKIING

Not a conventional ski resort, Innsbruck is a city which accesses a range of resorts in its immediate vicinity and slightly further in the Innsbruck Olympic Ski Region. On the edge of the Old Town, there is an ultra-modern underground funicular which whisks guests up to the Seegrube cable car and the Nordpark ski area, that towers over the city. The Nordpark offers some of the steepest ski routes in Austria. To the south of the city, the Patscherkofel ski area is easily accessed from the city. Mutters is a similar distance, and both offer great tree-lined intermediate skiing.

A little further is the fantastic ski resort of Axamer Lizum which has great off-piste on its high-altitude ski slopes. And for total snow security (and included on the Innsbruck regional ski pass), the Stubai Glacier has skiing from September through to June on slopes rising to over 3200m. The views and snow quality at the Stubai Glacier are often superb. Kühtai and Schlick 2000 are 2 other nearby resorts included on the Innsbruck ski pass, Kühtai offering a 2000m + resort and long ski season.

INNSBRUCK RESORT

Innsbruck is not a resort but a city of 130K people. It has numerous quaint ski resorts in the mountains surrounding Innsbruck, but it is a very different experience in the city. In many ways it is a unique and exceptional visitor experience, walking between stylish bars and restaurants and gazing up (almost vertically in the case of the Nordpark) at the ski area snow cannon lights and Pisten Bullies. The narrow valley means that the northern and southern edges of the city give way to rising peaks.

Innsbruck combines old and new superbly well. Much of the infrastructure is ultra-modern whilst there are some excellent modern bars and restaurants with views over the mountains. The Old Town has historic buildings and cellars which host modern bars, wine cellars and a range of impressive restaurants. There are some excellent group venues as well such as the Bergisel ski jump which can host events, the Innsbruck Congress Centre and numerous large restaurants.

INNSBRUCK APRÈS SKI

Not known for ski boots on tables, Innsbruck offers an altogether slicker après ski scene with some uber-cool hangouts, frequented by elite skiers and snowboarders. The range of bars in Innsbruck is incredible with everything from student hangouts to local’s bars and private roof-top terrace bars. The city has a number of late bars and clubs which are often busy places, late into the night.

For those wanting to sample euro-pop and ski boots on tables then there are a number of traditional ski resorts in the vicinity of Innsbruck. The base-station of the Stubai Glacier offers early evening après ski from October through to May. Following a few hours of healthy après ski, it is possible to return to the cultured streets of Innsbruck and sample après ski, Innsbruck-style.

INNSBRUCK MEETINGS & SEMINARS

Innsbruck is one of the stand-out locations in the Alps for meetings & seminars. Transport connections are superb by air, rail and road, and being the largest city in the region, the infrastructure and facilities on offer are impressive. There are venues for meetings & seminars throughout the city with old and modern options, in large and small formats. As well as the excellent range of venues, bars and restaurants are abundant for post meeting entertainment.

The range of activities in Innsbruck is extensive. So, after the meeting portion of the day has finished, clients can sample everything from culture to action sports. Within the city there is fine dining and theatre, whilst for adrenalin-craving clients, there is the Olympic Bobsled to try, numerous snow activities, as well as air sports.
