Experience Igls, Patsch and Ellbögen

A sunny plateau - nature and just above Innsbruck

Nestled at the foot of Patscherkofel, Innsbruck’s landmark mountain, lie three picturesque villages full of Tyrolean charm and international flair.

Igls, Patsch and Ellbögen score with sweeping panoramic views across the Wipptal valley and further afield, with the permanently snow-covered tops of the Stubai Glacier glistening on the horizon. Besides their unmatched location on a sunny plateau just above Innsbruck, the villages are also incredibly easy to reach.

Locals are used to nipping up from Innsbruck for a relaxing evening or weekend, to enjoy the many sports activities on offer both in summer and during the winter months.

Leaving behind Igls and its romantic parish church, handsome farm houses and spa hotels, the Patscherkofelbahn cable car carries visitors off towards lofty skiing, snowboarding and hiking areas.

Guests staying at Patsch and Ellbögen also benefit from the close proximity of this skiing and hiking paradise, which is a hit with the mountain bike crowd, too.

The vast meadows of the sunny plateau, however, seem to be made for endless, leisurely walks and to explore the beauty of nature throughout the year.

Guests staying at Igls, Patsch or Ellbögen benefit from a free hiking programme (including equipment rental), as well as free ski-bus service to the skiing areas within the Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck arena. There is ample opportunity to tee off at one of several golf courses, go horseback-riding at the largest equestrian facility in Western Austria, or take a refreshing dip at the Lansersee swimming lake.

Olympic champion among winter sport resorts: History was made on the Patscherkofel mountain when the Winter Olympics downhill events were held there in both 1964 and 1976. The immaculately groomed slopes as well as the new, wider family run, make this area ideal for skiers of all abilities.


Summer Holidays in Igls, Vill, Patsch and Ellbögen

Summer, sunshine, sport: In the middle of June, the Patscherkofel mountain prepares itself for the display of a natural spectacle – the flowering of the Alpine rose when the mountain meadows are transformed into a vibrant carpet of red. Just a minute’s walk from the top lift station are the Alpine botanical gardens.
