Hiking in Innsbruck, Tyrol

Wherever you're spending time in Innsbruck: nature is always close enough to touch. Thanks to its location embedded in the Inn Valley, surrounded by steep towering mountain ranges, the city and countryside are closely interlinked. Feel the pulse of nature door to door with busy urban life and enjoy the wealth of relaxation and recreational options that will impress you no less in the summer than in the winter.

Summer outdoors

Green mountain pastures and rugged climbing rocks, leisurely hiking trails and viewing terraces, golf courses, water sports and swimming lakes: the alpine nature around Innsbruck expresses itself in many different guises. You can get up the Nordkette mountain range in just a few minutes from the old town. Besides a stunning hiking area, a great day trip destination awaits you there, Alpenzoo Innsbruck, which is one of the highest situated zoos in Europe. While hiking and mountain biking, you head out into authentic unspoilt nature, for example up the Patscherkofel local mountain. Anyone who would like to take things a bit easier should take the cable car and enjoy the view from one of the mountain pastures or restaurants with viewing terraces.

As a host of the Olympic Games three times, Innsbruck's great reputation precedes it. The range that nature offers in winter is just as great. You can select from 9 ski resorts in the Olympia Skiworld in the metropolitan area of Innsbruck. Just one ski pass gives you access to all of them and the free ski bus takes you there. Together the ski resorts result in skiing fun over an incredible 300 kilometres of slopes. From the family friendly ski resort to the legendary Steilrinne on the Nordkette, every skier and snowboarder will find sporting opportunities to suit their taste here. The skiing fun lasts almost all year thanks to the snow guaranteed slopes on the glacier not far from the Tyrolean regional capital. You can experience wintry nature more sedately on the vast cross-country trails, snowshoe hikes or horse-drawn carriage rides.

Experience the combination of an alpine lifestyle close to nature and urban convenience yourself: you can find a comfortable apartment, whether you're a single person or family, in the middle to city at the trendy and modern B(l)ackhome. Book your city break in Innsbruck now!
