The home mountain of Innsbruck with its characteristic round summit was the venue for the men’s downhill race during both the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics. The Patscherkofel ski area is ideal for families and beginners, and offers a snow park for freestyle enthusiasts
The Axamer Lizum ski area hosted events at both the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics. No wonder, since it’s snow conditions are the stuff of Olympic dreams. Thanks to its high altitude, the high-alpine climate and the extensive use of artificial snow, it is one of the most snow secure ski resorts in Austria. Be it skiers, snowboarders, free-riders or racing enthusiasts – the Axamer Lizum ski area offers something for everyone.
A great alternative to skiing is a toboggan ride from the Rumer Alm. After an approx. 1-hour hike through a beautiful forest area, you reach the Rumer Alm, which offers delicious food. Here you can conveniently rent toboggans free of charge, so you don’t have to pull them uphill.
Rum also offers guests a nice park area with an ice skating rink, which can be reached on foot within 10 minutes. Ice skates are available for rent and hot drinks like tea and coffee are also offered.
Snowy forests, crisp winter air and the astonishing views of the Tyrolean mountains – one can only fully comprehend the magic of the cold season on a winter hike. As sunlight falls through the snow covered pine trees, only the sound of your own footsteps breaks the silence of freshly fallen snow.
The peacefulness of the Tyrolean mountains is best experienced on foot. Enjoy the fantastic winter landscape on numerous routes, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and the ski areas. Be sure to stop for a refreshment or a hearty meal at one of the mountain pastures, such as the "Rumer Alm" or the "Arzler Alm".
