A lively city hailed as the "Capital of the Alps", Innsbruck - along with its 25 holiday villages - offers the perfect setting for winter holidays of the most memorable kind. Explore the city’s historical and well-preserved Old Town in the morning, then, when the call of the surrounding mountains becomes irresistible, make your way to the base station of the Nordkette cable car (right in the city centre), and be on the slopes some 20 minutes later and 1,400m higher!
Thanks to the 1964 and 1976 Olympics, and the Youth Winter Olympics of 2012, Innsbruck is well-reputed for its excellent slopes, quality competition venues and superb infrastructure. 9 Tirolean ski and snowboard resorts representing the Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck can conveniently be reached by a free ski bus service. On the city side, there is no shortage of shopping, museums and cultural events here in Tirol’s capital city, and, when the sun goes down, it’s time to experience Innsbruck’s terrific variety of restaurants and nightlife.
