SNO-man says

A beuatiful city, Olympic centre and capital of the Tyrol. Excellent guest facilities and remarkably generous ski lift pass structure taking in local and famous ski centres nearby and year-round skiing on the Stubai glacier, all with hotel pick up by bus.

SNO-man says

Innsbruck's heritage of Olympic winter sports installations means that there is an ongoing program of competitive events such as ski jumping, bob-sledding, figure skating, and ice hockey. All these facilities are also open to the public, the guest bob-sled ride (appointments on request) being a particular attraction. In addition, virtually every ski resort in Tirol (there are over a hundred with at least a 600m / 2000 ft vertical ) can be accessed within one hour from Innsbruck for ski sampling. Even hardcore skiers can rarely resist Innsbruck's cultural and historic attractions. The best way to experience these is to buy an economically priced 24, 48 or 72-hour "Innsbruck Card" that opens the doors of every public building and transport, museum, casino etc. Innsbruck is the perfect jumping-off point for day explorations, and scheduled sightseeing buses run to St Moritz, Salzburg, Munich, the Bavarian Castles, and even to Venice. As may be expected in a European city, Innsbruck has a continual performance program of opera, symphony, exhibitions and festivals. The Christmas Holiday season is particularly inviting with Advent concerts, a giant Christmas Tree surmounting a Christkindl Market, and an active outdoor New Year Eve celebration with drink stands, entertainment, fireworks and laser displays.

"Innsbruck" by any other name

The Austrian resort is also known as Innsbruck Hfelekar, Seegrube, Nordpark and has common misspellings:

The direction which the various Innsbruck slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.

- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition. Conversely, in the warmest spring skiing months of March and especially April, a resort with cool and shady north facing trails will ensure you're not riding on slush, but benefitting from best late season snow. The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Innsbruck has slopes facing S.

Childcare in Innsbruck, Austria

Innsbruck day and evening care plus snow ski schools and babysitting.

Although cities are rarely child-friendly, Innsbruck is better than most, with most of the busy main roads outside the city. There is plenty of parkland dotted around and trams to hop on and off. Children from age three years may attend kindergartens in Igls, Patsch, and Stubai. The ski kindergarten for slightly older children also includes lunch. Back in Innsbruck children enjoy the Alpine Zoo, where indigenous species can be seen in environments similar to their native habitats. Most are also enchanted by the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in nearby Wattens, a three-dimensional adventure of crystal, light, and sound.
