Innsbruck - Capital of the Alps

The striking landscape of the Tirolean capital, blends a pretty city with amazing outdoor adventure. Bursting with culture and surrounded by majestic mountains, Innsbruck is impressive, for summer and winter getaways.

Explore the medieval town with a spectacular mix of colourful stone buildings and cobbled passageways. Soak up the great history of the Habsburg Empire at the Imperial Palace and visit the Schloss Ambras for castle tales, or wander through the town to gaze up at St Anna’s Column. Book flights to Innsbruck and stay above the clouds, as you jump on the Hungerburg Funicular, designed by famous architect Zaha Hadid, or hop on the cable car for panoramic views from the Nordkette mountain. This gateway to the Alps is full of charm, with an array of outdoor activities. Hit the chairlifts and gondolas for a day of paragliding or mountain biking, as well as an abundance of other activities to try in summer. Or hit the slopes during winter, to enjoy winter sports in alpine paradise.

Innsbruck Christmas market breaks

Innsbruck, the capital of the mountainous Tyrol region, is the perfect place for a Christmas market. Book a stay at the Hilton Innsbruck for its superb location, or try your luck in the casino. With the snow-sure conditions across the stunning Austrian Alps, and the beautiful medieval architecture, the market seems to be something out of a fairy tale. The Christmas tree’s twinkling lights bounce off the famous Golden Roof, and the aroma of kiachin (doughnuts) and spatzin (dumplings) fill the air. Then, shop for Christmas ornaments, handmade toys and the unavoidable mugs of glühwein to enjoy Innsbruck’s inimitable festive cheer.

Summers in Austria

Action-packed summers in the Austrian Tirol

The invigorating region of Tirol offers a wonderful variety of summer adventures for everyone. Hit the mountains and find hiking trails, surrounded by alpine trees, big boulders and picturesque pools. Grab a bike and enjoy the splendid cycle paths, or if you’re more experienced head off the tracks through incredible scenery. Go rock-climbing up sensational mountain faces and admire the views. For a spectacular adrenaline rush, go paragliding from the mountain edge and see the city from the skies. Or hit the lakes for a dip in fresh mountain waters, sunbathe and picnic by the shores, then jump on a wakeboard and let the wind carry you away.
