Where to go around Innsbruck
Innsbruck is the largest city in Tyrol. With the Alps surrounding the city, the scenery is amazing. The proximity of the Alps also means that there are many cosy mountain villages in the area. You can also visit several great ski slopes and ski resorts within comfortable driving distance from Innsbruck. Below we’ll mention a few of our favourite spots in the area.
Stubaier Gletscher is the largest glacier ski resort in Austria and is only about an hour’s drive south of Innsbruck. The ski resort has some amazing slopes and no less than 25 lifts. The highest peak in the area is 3 000 metres, and you really get some incredible views of the landscape from the slopes. Regardless of your personal level, you’ll be able to ski at Stubaier Gletscher as they have sopes for all difficulty levels.
The cosy town of Imst is an approximate 50 minute drive west of Innsbruck. Imst is located over 800 metres above sea level, and just strolling around the city is a very nice experience. There are also many culturally interesting attractions, and several times a year, the city gives plays, other theatre performances, operas and festivals.
About 55 miles from Innbruck is the old market town of St. Johann. This town has a beautiful location with the Alps as a backdrop. There are several old churches worth visiting, and the town centre is also historically interesting. You can also go on a cable car that takes you to the top of a nearby mountain.
