Innsbruck - a winter sports paradise right outside your door
Skiing– the queen of winter sports
Skiing is definitely the undisputed number one winter sport! And when you stay at Hotel Zach in Innsbruck, a total of nine ski regions providing more than 260km of Olympia SkiWorld slopes are laid out virtually at your feet. Both masters of the slopes and little ski-babies will be tempted to make a few expeditions to the region's nearby ski resorts to enjoy the crystal-clear winter air. Of course snowboarding, freeriding, freestyling and ski touring are also on the winter sports menu, both on and off the slopes.
Tobogganing – tonnes of winter fun for everyone
Tobogganing is the ideal source of winter fun for everyone! No prior knowledge or complicated equipment are required, and even the smallest of us can slide down any hill. Snow enthusiasts both young and old can enjoy just the right toboggan tours. The best thing is, at the end of most strenuous climbs you will find a hut waiting for you with delicious hearty Tyrolean specialties to sustain the hard-working tobogganist. If you prefer to take the easy option and enjoy some tobogganing without a preliminary climb, in some cases you can take the mountain railway to the top of your chosen toboggan slope. That way you can save time and effort and enjoy many more exhilarating descents.
Experience nature and adventure in the ice & snow
When the temperature drops below zero, it's the season for all kinds of ice sports in Innsbruck! There's classic ice-skating, of course: in the centre of the city or in the idyllic open spaces? There are plenty of ice rinks to choose from in Innsbruck...and if you'd rather conquer the ice vertically, why not try ice climbing? The brave among us dare to attempt the "guest bob sled" and traverse the Olympic track at Igls. Plummet down the same track on which the world championships are decided, spinning and whirling at Mach 3. How's that for an icy adventure! And last but not least: the range of winter sport options could not be complete without cross-country skiing. A cross-country tour is a marvellous winter treat. The many kilometres of trails are well-maintained and very clearly marked, and most offer simply breath-taking views!
