Lay of the Land

The imperial city of Innsbruck is also the capital of Tyrol, and offers travelers a vast amount of things to do. Nestled between two Alpine mountain regions, Innsbruck is a cultural and commercial hub that has much more than just great skiing. With its historical downtown and close access to the slopes, Innsbruck is an attractive destination for culture seekers and active travelers alike.

As host to the Olympics in 1964 and 1976, the city has long been a favorite for winter travelers. The region boasts more than 300 miles of trails combined in its 25 surrounding ski resorts. Advanced skiers shouldn’t miss the Stubai Glacier area, which boasts 18 lifts and 35 miles of runs.

With over 800 years of history and sights including castles, palaces, theaters, opera houses and museums, the destination offers something for intellectuals as well as skiers and hikers. The Old Town boasts breathtaking architecture, wonderful shopping and cozy restaurants and bars.

Getting There

Innsbruck has its own international airport, receiving flights from many major European cities including Frankfurt, Vienna and Amsterdam.

Getting Around

The hotels in Innsbruck do not have direct access to the slopes, so some driving is required. The hotels either offer or can arrange shuttles to the mountains.
