Set against the glorious background of the Alps, Innsbruck offers all the attractions of a major city with plentiful skiing a short distance away. Tyrol’s capital is as famous for its Habsburg palaces, medieval streets and museums as its sophisticated shops and restaurants. Just over 20 kilometres away, Seefeld is one of the Tyrol’s luxury winter sports venues. Quieter downhill runs suit beginners, and the area offers some of Europe’s best cross-country skiing. Out of the ski season high alpine hiking trails offer fantastic challenges and stunning views.
