Location and orientation
Innsbruck lies on the river Inn in the Tyrolean Alps. With over 130,000 inhabitants, Innsbruck is not only the capital but also the most populous city in Tyrol. The city stretches on both sides of the Inn valley and extends beyond the valley floor into the mountains. The Inn valley is surrounded by mountains on all sides. In the south Innsbruck borders on the 2246 meters high Patscherkofel, in the north on the Karwendelgebirge. The Stubai Alps and the Tux Alps complete the mountain panorama.In the valley between mighty mountain peaks
A few kilometres west of Innsbruck the Melach flows into the Inn, the river mouth forms the dividing line between the Oberinntal and the Unterinntal. In addition to the lively city centre of Innsbruck City, the sunny high plateaus, the picturesque Kühtai and Sellraintal valleys and the region's nine ski resorts attract visitors. You will find a holiday apartment in Innsbruck both in the city area and on the mountain slopes.

In Innsbruck the vacation rental is never far away from the nearest ski area. For skiing or snowboarding, for example, there is the family ski area Olympia Skiworld. Freeriders meet in Kühtai, at the Axamer Lixum, on the Nordkette and at the Stubai Glacier for tricks off the beaten track. The Innsbruck region comprises a total of nine ski resorts with 300 kilometres of downhill slopes and 90 mountain railways and lifts. A single ski pass is sufficient for all ski resorts.Innsbruck for hikers
In summer, the charming Tyrolean countryside invites you to extensive hikes. Past blooming alpine meadows, hiking trails of various degrees of difficulty lead through the mountains. For example, the many alpine pastures in the region, such as the Arzler Alm, the Möslalm or the Höttinger Alm, are destinations. After a little refreshment we continue from there towards the summit or back to the valley.
Members of the Innsbruck and Partenkirchen ski clubs developed the idea of ski jumping on four jumps in 1949. Innsbruck is still the station of the Four Hills Tournament.
