The resort

One of the largest cities in the Alps and a previous host of the Winter Olympics, Innsbruck is the ideal base for culture-hungry skiers. Mountain peaks peer over historic buildings, with well-connected access to local ski resorts such as Igls and Seefeld.

A skiing city

Innsbruck has a lasting heritage as the destination of the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics. Sitting at the foot of the Inn Valley, the mountains of the Karwendel Alps, Patscherkofel and Serles seem to engulf you on all sides. When you’re not tempted to the peaks of the nearby skiing resorts, you can discover the rich culture of the 16th century Ambras Castle and the Imperial Hofburg that houses the Alpine Club Museum.

Igls up above

Igls is an idyllic, traditional village that peers over the city. Its small size means there’s a compact skiing area and only a handful of runs, but it’s still a very welcoming place for beginners. As a plus point, you can ride the red run where Franz Klammer took gold in the 1976 Winter Olympics.

Enjoy the space of Seefeld

If you fancy a bigger selection of runs near to the city, Seefeld is a great choice. It still only tots up just over 270km of piste but intermediates will find lots to like with the high-altitude snow-sure slopes and Olympic runs.

The highlights

  • Visit the Alpine Club Museum in Innsbruck.
  • Take on the Olympic red run in Igls.
  • Check out the Siglu, a ‘glass igloo’ bar in Seefeld.
