The Bergisel ski jump installation is a triumph of style and structure, designed by star architect Zaha Hadid in 2001. The sinuous and dynamic form of the main tower accommodates a restaurant, viewing terrace and the ski jump starting ramp. Athletic visitors can climb the 455 steps to the main tower, but it can be reached more comfortably in just a few minutes by cable car and visitor lift which takes you up the tower to the café and restaurant and the panoramic viewing platform, which offers a 360° view of the Tirol’s mountain scenery. The installation is one of the most popular visitor attractions in Tirol, open daily from 9am to 5pm.
In Hochpustertal there are three skiing areas ideally suited for families, the largest of which is the Thurntaler near Sillian with its 45km runs of all levels, going up to 2407m of sun-flooded slopes with views of the Dolomites and no waiting at the lifts.Hochpustertal in East Tirol
