      City + Skiing = Winter Love in Innsbruck in Tirol

      #winterlove is... the perfect combination of city and mountains

    Winter Love is... a City Stroll and a Ski Run, All in One Day

    Yes, Innsbruck is pretty unique: Where else do you get a beautiful Baroque town surrounded by 13 ski areas? Stroll its streets full of imperial elegance and have a coffee in a classic Austrian coffeehouse. And then, take a cable car from the city centre and be at 2,000 m in just 20 minutes.

    Tirol's capital is the perfect destination for holidaymakers wishing to combine skiing and snowboarding adventures with urban amenities such as shopping streets, museums, and day spas. And if you want to take a complete day off from skiing, the locals certainly won't judge you. In Innsbruck, relaxation in style is just as important as the sporty part. Besides its breathtaking setting amidst majestic peaks, it's Innsbruck's warm and chilled atmosphere after all that makes guests come again and again.

    Imagine the lights of a Christmas tree rivalling the glistening tiles of the Golden Roof, the aroma of freshly made “Kiachln” (piping hot doughnuts laced with Sauerkaut), and the sound of traditional Christmas carols. This is Christmas time in Innsbruck.

    Experience the traditional, romantic and festive Christmas atmosphere of Innsbruck's historic old town. The Christmas Market at Maria-Theresien-Straße has a special eye-catcher: the illuminated mountain crystal that towers above the market. Advent at the Market Square is perfect for families: The square enchants with a Tyrolean village feel and the market also includes a varied children's programme. For the best views of wintery Innsbruck, visit the Panorama Christmas Market at Hungerburg. The Christmas market in the St. Nikolaus district shows the tranquil and reflective side of Advent.
