Fantastic skiing and an exceptional cultural experience awaits you in Innsbruck.
Chosen as the site of the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympic Games, Innsbruck considers skiing part of its city's life, and is one of the few resorts in Europe with a snow guarantee. Free buses shuttle you from downtown to the nearby ski areas. Among them Igls and Mutters will appeal to the novice and intermediate skiers with long, wide-open trails; Patscherkofel at 7,490 feet and Hafelekar, reached by a series of lifts at the edge of town will offer steep, challenging runs for the more advanced skiers.
There are also several snowboard parks in the area including one at Axamer Lizum with half-pipes and natural jumps and one at the Stubai Glacier with a half-pipe, jumps, and a snowboard racecourse. Over 800 years old, this Tyrolian capital displays its historic treasures for all to see. A walk through its streets will take you by the famous Golden Roof, the Ambras Castle, imperial palaces, theatres, opera houses, museums, and much more. Combined with the spectacular natural beauty surrounding it, Innsbruck is hard to beat.
