The Tyrol is one of nine provinces in Austria. Located in the west of this Alpine country, the province has a total area of 12,648 sqm. The Tyrol is characterised by its unique natural environment and offers plenty of opportunities to relax after a long conference day.


Innsbruck, the capital of the Tyrol, has a population of 150,000. It is situated 575 m above sea level and is surrounded by impressive mountain peaks. Innsbruck is one of the most beautiful cities in the Alps. The city is characterised by the Old Town with its arcades, City Tower and the Golden Roof.

The mountains all around, nature on your doorstep, three Olympic Games with the appropriate infrastructure and an active population with sport firmly rooted in their DNA – all these are the ingredients for a city where people love to get actively involved in sport.
Museum and mountain, hiking boots and high heels, bikes and snowboards, mountain hut culture and rooftop bar – all this and much more comes together in the Innsbruck region in a harmonious fusion.

Olympia’s five rings

This is why you’ll come across the Olympic legacy wherever you go in the Innsbruck region. At the Olympic Bobsleigh, Luge and Skeleton Track in Innsbruck/Igls, which was completely refurbished in 2007, there are annual World Cup races and interna- tional championships in one of the three disciplines.

If you fancy racing down the 1,270-metre-long run like a world champion, you’ll have the chance to do so (also in summer) on the “Gästebob” guest bob- sleigh or the skeleton, and the fearless can opt for the challenge of the wok variant. In addition to the toboggan run, Olympiaworld Innsbruck comprises the Olympiahalle and the Tiroler Wasserkraft Arena, two locations open throughout the year and ideal for ma- jor sporting events such as ice hockey, volleyball and climbing - hosting, for example, the 2018 Climbing World Championships.

If you want to feel like Franz Klammer, the Austrian ski legend who won gold in the downhill at the 1976 Olympic Games in Innsbruck, the best thing to do on the Patscherkofel, Innsbruck’s home mountain, is to take on the Olympic downhill, the World Cup slope or the race track down into the valley.

To experience a similar sense of world championship competition, you first ride up on the Olympiabahn in the Axamer Lizum, where most of the 1964 and 1976 Olympic Winter Games ski competitions were held, and then swing down the freshly prepared men or women’s downhill run.

And everyone who performes their favourite tricks in the KPark in the Ski Resort Kühtai and overcomes the creative obstacles or the SuperPipe, 7.5 metres high and 165 metres long, can feel like a true Olympic champion. The snow park was built for the 2012 Winter Youth Olympics and is now remodelled every winter for all shredder fans.

Very Nordic

For ski jumpers the year starts with the traditional Four Hills Tournament and in Innsbruck, every 4 January, thousands of fans set off on a pilgrimage to the Bergisel Stadium where, from the spectacular ski jump designed by prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid, you can enjoy fantastic views of the city and admire the three Olympic flame bowls.
The ski jump was the setting for the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Seefeld in 2019 when training courses and ski jumping and combination competitions were held on the historic Bergisel.
If you’d also like to feel like a ski jumper, you have the chance to do so as part of a special tour of the Bergisel ski jump. Well-secured, you sit like a ski jumper on the launch platform and look down from on high onto the landing field, the city beyond and the Nordkette moun- tain panorama
You don’t actually jump, of course, but the adrenaline rush is awesome just sitting there.

The Joys of Winter

Sport is truly inspirational, which is why it’s no wonder that everyone in the 13 ski areas of the Innsbruck region and the nearby Stubaital valley, from toddler to senior, flocks to the ski slopes to enjoy to the full the sunniest and, from a skiing perspective, the most interesting aspects of winter carving, ski touring, snowboarding or freeriding.
The Ski Resort Kühtai, the Olympia Park Axamer Lizum, the Freeride Lounge Nordkette and the Stubai Glacier have established themselves as freeride hotspots in recent years.
A total of 111 lifts and cable cars in the 13 ski areas give skiing fans of all ages easy access to no fewer than 308 kilometres of slopes.
Since the 2019/2020 winter season, the SKI plus CITY Pass has made it possible to combine the pleasures of skiing and enjoying the buzz of the city. The pass, available for stays of two nights or more, includes this huge variety of slopes and lots more: 22 lifestyle, cultural and sightseeing offers as well as 3 swimming pools and 2 transport services.

Tobogganing fun for the whole family is the order of the day on the natural toboggan runs. There are lots of runs, the longest 11 km down from the Birgitzer Alm, which enable you to have a great time in the Innsbruck region for free – at night time too, on flood-lit runs.

Summer, Sun, Biking

Skis in winter, wheels in summer. With 115 km of designated mountain bike trails, the Innsbruck region has an extensive network of trails for both experts and beginners.
The world’s biggest Gravity Mountain Bike Festi- val has not only established itself in Innsbruck but also strengthened the bike community in Innsbruck. Crankworx, with competitions in various disciplines, is a must for the international mountain bike elite, and its festival character is enhanced by DJs and a Kids Contest.
After the premiere in 2017, Bikepark Innsbruck, along with Rotorua in New Zealand and Whistler in Can- ada, is the only European stop and has maintained its position at the centre of the Crankworx tour. If you fancy having a go yourself, you can take the bike shuttle straight from the city to the trails at Bikepark Innsbruck in Mutters.

With the Bike City Card, this shuttle service is not only free, the card also entitles you to use all the lifts and cable cars operated by Bikepark Innsbruck, the Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen and the Elferbahnen in the Stubai.

The racing bike scene has also discovered for it- self the advantages of the Innsbruck region for top events. The UCI Road Cycling World Championships in Innsbruck in September 2018 were enthusiastical- ly received by hundreds of thousands of spectators and posed a thrilling challenge for the world-class riders.

But other events such as the Tour of the Alps and the Tour Transalp, which regularly make a stopover in Innsbruck, also put the region in the spotlight of international racing.

On with the running shoes

Various running events and the ever more popular trailruns give participants the chance to master extreme challenges but at the same time enjoy some unforgettable experiences of the great outdoors.

The Innsbruck region offers the perfect conditions to do so, as demonstrated by the many outstand- ing international events. The Innsbruck Alpine Trailrun Festival is not only one of the most spec- tacular trail running events, it was also conceived in the sports city of Innsbruck.

Which is no surprise, because where else do countryside and mountains come so close to a city as here in the heart of the Alps. Distances between 15 km and 110 km offer plenty of sport- ing enjoyment for both trail running experts and newcomers.

Climb High

Climbing in the Innsbruck region? Of course! And of a world class standard. International bouldering and climbing competitions and World and European Cham- pionships are repeatedly held here, such as the IFSC World Climbing Championships from 6 to 16 Septem- ber in 2018 which turned Innsbruck into a climbing centre for 10 days.

With the Climbing Centre Innsbruck, one of the largest and most modern climbing facilities in the world, the city is the ideal location for both climbing stars and newcomers. Around 500 routes and around 200 boul- der problems make the climbing centre, or Kl as it’s called by the local climbing community, a real “climb- ers’ paradise”.

Modern Knight Tourneys

Speaking of the Golden Roof – this beautiful building provides a magnificent backdrop for the International Gold- en Roof Challenge, to which it gives its name. The pole vault and long jump tournaments take place every year in early summer in front of the Golden Roof in the middle of Innsbruck’s Old Town and deliver a tingling open-air feeling for both spectators and top athletes.


Innsbruck is an alpine-urban city, the perfect spot for conventions and conferences. Wreathered by imposing mointain chains, this university town boasts a modern infrastructure and plethora of leisure activities. Its ease of access heightens the attractiveness still further. All of it makes Innsbruck a young, widen open town
