Travel season is finally back as COVID-19 travel restrictions are starting to ease up worldwide. We can’t help but wonder what our next destination would be after such a long travel break. The ultimate destination would be somewhere that’s full of adventure, culture, and nature. This is why we think the Innsbruck region in Austria is the ideal summer destination with the complete package.

Relaxation or sport? Pleasure or something more demanding? A solo trip or family fun? Everything’s possible in and around Innsbruck and in a completely natural way.

Here are some of the many perks of Innsbruck.

Many natural escapes:

Inhale the fresh mountain air or make your way from the heart of the city straight into the great outdoors to take a dip in a refreshing lake or simply enjoy a ride with a bike.

Enjoy mesmerising views as you climb up to a dizzy height with a cable car and look down on the urban hustle and bustle from the Nordkette mountains.

Hiking

People enjoy different types of things. For some, it’s the feeling of freedom that they feel when they reach the summit after a long walk and the reward of a hearty refreshment stop in a charming mountain hut.

Relaxation Time

For others, it’s the feeling of relaxation in the hotel's own organic sauna and then a refreshing dip in the natural pond or enjoying the rooftop wellness area of their hotel, all the while marvelling at the awesome mountain views.
