Innsbruck - Capital of the Alps

The city of Innsbruck presides over the beautiful Tirolean region of the Alps. Its medieval centre has a spectacular mix of colourful stone buildings and cobbled passageways, and a fair few impressive sights lie within the bounds of the city: the Imperial Palace and Ambras Castle, to name just two.

But one of Innsbruck’s main draws is its surroundings. You only have to hop onto the Zaha Hadid-designed Hungerburg Funicular or climb into a cable car to rise above the city and into an alpine paradise. For half the year, Innsbruck is the winter sports capital of Europe – but in summer it becomes a completely different world: wildflowers bloom in alpine meadows and the mountains become your playground: hit the chairlifts for a day of paragliding, mountain biking or hiking. Fly in to Innsbruck and begin your adventure in the Nordkette mountain range.

Summer holidays in the Austrian Tirol

Summer holidays in Innsbruck and beyond

Innsbruck
Innsbruck.

Innsbruck’s 800-year-old Old Town is lovely any time of year. In summer you can enjoy lovely promenade concerts in the courtyard at the Imperial Palace, swim at Lake Lans and Lake Natters, and discover Pine Martens in the city’s alpine zoo. But for outdoor adventure, the only way is up: ascend the Nordkette peak by cable car for amazing views over the city and a high-altitude stroll. With hiking, biking, riding, golf and climbing all within easy reach. Innsbruck is a great base for an action-packed summer holiday.

Kitzbühel
Kitzbühel.

Kitzbühel is Innsbruck’s fashionable neighbour, easily reached from Innsbruck airport with a 90-minute transfer. This chic alpine town sits at the foot of the formidable Hahnenkamm mountain. A rather jet-set crowd frequent the town’s fashionable bars around the pedestrianised Vorderstadt. The surrounding countryside is laced with trails: 120km of mountain bike paths and 500km of hiking trails, to be precise. In summer you can play golf on four courses in town, hike, bike and climb – or cool off in nearby Schwarzsee, a pretty lake.

St Anton
St Anton.

This upmarket village resort has a lovely, quaint medieval centre, with cobbled streets and a handsome onion-domed church – but even this is dwarfed by the impressive mountain range behind the village. Hikers can explore the Lechtal and Verwall Alps, whilst the steep slopes that make St Anton a ski haven in winter become amazing race biking trails in summer. If you’d rather spectate that get in the saddle, you can watch the Arlberg Giro in August – a terrific road cycling race.

Seefeld
Seefeld.

Just half an hour from Innsbruck by train or by car, the beautiful village of Seefeld is a popular base for a cosmopolitan crowd. There’s a pedestrianised city centre brim-full of quaint shops and bars – and Innsbruck’s flashier wares are just a short visit away. The surroundings of Seefeld are very, very pretty, making it the perfect Tirolean holiday bolthole. Visitors can come and make the most of the Olympiaregion Seefeld: 650 kilometres of marked trails for hikers, mountain bikers and climbers looking to tackle some via ferrata.
