During the FEPSAC-Congress in Innsbruck a wide variety of sport activities (running sessions, yoga, hiking, bob-sliding, rock-climbing HIT-training and cycling) will be offered.
Aiming to support families attending the Congress, FEPSAC 2024 will offer onsite childcare (age 0 – 13). Members can attend Congress sessions knowing their child is having fun and will be taken care off.
We will coordinate childcare rooms, exciting trips (zoo, sportpark, mountain trail) and excursions for the children
Innsbruck’s historic Old Town, which is located right on the doorsteps of Congress Innsbruck, takes you back to the time of Emperor Maximilian I. The late Gothic façades built from 1490 to 1520, the arcades construct- ed in a typical Innsbruck-Salzach style and the colourfully decorated bay windows bring history and culture to life. The Golden Roof is the crowning glory of the Old Town. Set below the majestic peaks of the Nordkette mountain range, it watches over history as the centuries pass by.
St. Anne’s Column, the Chapel of St. George in the Federal State Parliament building and the Tri- umphal Arch are also impressive monuments to the city’s past that are seamlessly integrated along- side the modern architecture of the Kau- fhaus Tyrol and Rathauspassage shopping centres.
In 2009, the street itself was also transformed into an elegant prom- enade and pedestrian zone with granite paving, wonderful benches for taking a break from shopping or sightseeing and lots of open-air cafés and restaurants.
The Nordkette is part of Austria’s largest natural reserve, the Karwendel Natural Reserve, and can be reached directly from the congress centre station in just a few minutes!
The breathtaking 360° view leaves a lasting impression, with the capital of the Alps on one side and the Tyrol’s most extensive conservation area on the other. Experience the alpine scenery at a height up to 2,300 m above sea level in just a short cable car ride!

The new ski jump is majestically perched on the historic Bergisel hill, where 200 years ago Tyrolean farmers and peasants, led by Andreas Hofer, won three battles against the Bavarian and French invad- ers under Napoleon and lost the fourth.
In 1925, the first ski jump was constructed.
During the Olympic Games in 1964 and 1976, the Olympic Flame was lit on the Bergisel. Since 2002, a brand new ski jump by the famous architect Zaha Hadid has been one of the architectural landmarks of Innsbruck.
“Just as the crystal is a symbol of renewal, change and the smooth transition of a geometric shape, colour and sound, the Crystal Worlds are constantly changing.
This place is like fairy taleor people. They suddenly experience what they have previously known only from their dreams”, says the Viennese multimedia artist André Heller, creator of the Swarovski Crystal Worlds.
