With Olympic terrain, excellent children’s slopes, Innsbruck as a next-door neighbour and spa-town status, Igls can be a super choice for a last minute break. Ski the lovely Patscherkofel area, where you’ll find terrific slopes for beginners and intermediates as well as the Snowpark Innsbruck Patscherkofel.
Skischule Innsbruck Igls, Skischule Patscherkofel and Snowsport Igls provide a variety of group and private lessons and with 3 schools covering the area, there should be slots available even if you are booking at the eleventh hour. Children are superbly catered for with various nursery areas – we like the Kasererwiese as there’s a conveniently situated Bistro next door where parents can watch their little monkeys conquer the basics from their sun terrace.
Most bars in the village are housed in the hotels, meaning you can enjoy a quiet fireside sherry without having to stray too far. Although it doesn’t compete with Ischgl or St Anton as a party town, Igls is so near to Innsbruck that a decent bar or nightclub is never too far away, so groups looking for a night on the town won’t be left at a loose end.
A huge attraction here is the Olympic bobsled – you can go up to 115 km/h on their taxi sled. Other things to do include ice skating in the village and good old tobogganing.
