Innsbruck — also known as the “capital of the Alps” — is a popular winter sports center in Austria. Several ski resorts are located within the city’s vicinity, including the Kaunertaler Glacier, Pitztal Glacier, Sölden, Hintertux Glacier, and Stubai Glacier, which all have peaks of over 3,000 meters, and guarantee snow from October to June.

A 20-minute funicular ride with the Nordkettenseilbahn will take you from Innsbruck’s city center, directly to the Nordkette. This mountain range is great for hiking, climbing, and skiing. With a 70 percent inclination, pros can try their hand at one of the steepest ski paths in Europe! Both the funicular, and the Bergiselschanze — a ski jumping hill just outside of the city — were designed by star architect, Zaha Hadid, and set international standards for modern architecture.
