Culture, adventure, and enjoyment enthusiasts are particularly looking forward to excursions to the Tyrolean capital Innsbruck with its historic old town and the unique alpine urban flair. From the Bergisel ski jump, a ride on the modern Hungerburgbahn cable car to the Goldenes Dachl landmark, to a relaxed shopping tour in the always busy Maria-Theresien-Straße and the various shopping parks, there is an extraordinary variety of things to see and experience. With a view of the nearby Nordkette mountain range, you can relax in the cozy city center with a coffee or sparkling aperitif, enjoy the city flair and yet feel so close to nature. Numerous museums, such as the Landesmuseum, the Zeughaus, the venerable Schloss Ambras, the historic city tower, or the imperial Hofburg, will be worth a visit for those interested in culture. At the Alpine Zoo, you can marvel at more than 100 species of animals such as brown bear, wolf, and ibex – a visit is highly recommended, especially during spring when the offspring arrive.
Climb the Patscherkofel, the mountain of vitality and enjoyment for the Innsbruck people. Don’t worry, you can also take the cable car. In winter the mountain is a ski paradise and in summer a hiking oasis with numerous places to stop for a bite to eat.
By the way, here you will find one of the oldest Swiss stone pine forests in Europe. Many of the gnarled pines have been standing there for more than 250 years. The oldest tree is said to be 700 years old. This forest has been justifiably declared a nature reserve.
