What to do in Innsbruck ski area?

Published: Apr 8, 2024
Share

More than a ski holiday, Innsbruck is a cultural experience, offering so much more besides skiing. As a matter of fact, Innsbruck is not one but rather 13 ski resorts, located around the Tirol capital city.


The city of Innsbruck hosted the Winter Olympics in 1964 and 1976 and knows quite a bit about winter sports. Skiers and snowboarders have access to 300km of slopes around the 25 villages in the area.

Innsbruck Ski Area boasts skiing and snowboarding for all preferences and levels: on the Nordkette or on Olympic tracks on the Patscherkofel and in Axamer Lizum, family skiing fun on the Muttereralm or on the Rangger Köpfl in Oberperfuss, or the highest winter and piste fun in the Kühtai ski resort. Stubai Glacier, the largest glacier ski resort in Austria is also included in the Innsbruck Ski Pass.


All Ski Resorts in the area can easily be reached in under an hour by a free ski bus from the city center, and some are far more accessible than that. To get to the infamous Nordkette, for example, you board a mountain railway in the middle of the city.

 

For anyone who has just touched down at Innsbruck airport - and can see some of the best pistes and couloirs from the runway - it's a tantalizing prospect, as no international airport will get you closer to the Alps than Innsbruck airport, and if you book a city-centre hotel, the transfer will take you less than 15 minutes.

 

Skiing conditions in the Innsbruck Ski Area benefit from two separate climate zones, as it gets snow from both the north and the south. When the snow comes from the south, the Stubai glacier benefits. When it comes from the north, the Nordkette is often knee-deep in powder.


Set aside some time for sightseeing

 

To make the most of your Innsbruck ski holiday, make sure to get a Ski Plus City Pass, a unique ski pass that combines travelling the valley and winter sports in a single ticket and giving you access to not only to the lifts, slopes and cable cars at the 13 ski resort, but also to 23 city adventures. Skiing in the morning, followed by a museum in the afternoon and a mug of mulled wine at the Christmas market. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?


Innsbruck packs a big punch for a small city! Don't miss out on the following activities:

 

Alpine Zoo

 

 

Located above Innsbruck, the Alpine Zoo stands as Europe's highest zoo at 750 meters, offering a unique adventure with over 2,000 Alpine animals across 150 species. Visitors can explore an aquarium, terrariums, a farm for endangered breeds, walk-in enclosures, and the largest golden eagle aviary in Europe. With additional features like bear, wolf, and otter habitats and a play park, it's an unforgettable experience for families and wildlife enthusiasts.

 

Swarovski Crystal Worlds

 


The Innsbruck area is home to the world-famous luxury glass brand Swarovski, which primarily produces crystal glass, jewelry, watches and other services. The Swarovski Crystal Worlds are only 20 kilometers east of Innsbruck and can also be reached directly by shuttle. The famous giant and the extensive garden can already be seen from the entrance.
The play tower offers lots of fun for children and families on four levels. Many more adventures await at the playground, in the labyrinth and at the children's workshops.

 


Imperial Palace

 


The Imperial Palace was completed in the year 1500 under Emperor Maximilian I (1459-1519). Empress Elisabeth (Sisi) only stayed in Innsbruck a few times, but her husband, Emperor Franz Joseph, was a frequent guest in Tyrol and stayed at the Imperial Palace. Following the end of the monarchy (1918), former Imperial possessions became state accommodation. Today, the Imperial Palace is the third most important historic building in Austria and is managed by the Burghauptmannschaft.

 


Bergisel Ski Jump

 


At 50 meters high and 90 meters long, the ski jump stands proudly above the Olympic city of Innsbruck on the historic Bergisel. The Olympic flame burned on the Bergisel at the Olympic Games in 1964 and 1976 and was rebuilt in 2001. It is mainly reserved for the "ski jumping experience" but Innsbruck's modern landmark also attracts tourists: it is a great destination for anyone looking for a great view from the terrace or a nice cup of coffee at the panoramic café.

 

Grassmayr Bell Foundry

 


This traditional family business from Innsbruck has been making the sweet sound of bells ring out across Europe for over 400 years. The Grassmayrs have continued to develop and perfect the craft of bell foundry over 14 generations.
