Dadamm-dadamm, Dadamm-dadamm, Dadamm-dadamm - almost meditative sound of the train on its way to Innsbruck central station on the last meters of track. Arriving in Innsbruck is an aha experience. The Nordkette as a natural city border watches over the city, the Patscherkofel and the Serles guide over the Brennerpass to the south. The mighty Stubaier Alpen make the alpinist's mouth water, and in between there is simply a lot of urban. Welcome and have fun with the SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck.

Day 1: In Innsbruck, it's normal to see people getting out of a ICE in ski outfits and with their boards on their shoulders. And that is actually the first really cool thing about a stay of several days in the capital of the Tyrol. Mountain, city - it's all the same or both, alpine-urban sums it up perfectly. This starts with the first selfie in front of the Golden Roof in Innsbruck's old town: Photographed in portrait format, the connoisseur sees not only the 2,657 fire-gilded copper shingles but also the peaks of Nordkette flashing white at the top of the photo. With the Sightseer Bus big-city feel - the Hop on–Hop off system gives you the opportunity to see the sights that interest you individually - and that's included in your SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck. No extra costs. So, off to Bergisel to admire the ski jump by star architect Zaha Hadid, to the knight's chamber at Schloss Ambras Innsbruck or wherever else you like to go. And then head for the nearest rooftop bar for a sundowner - for example, a drink at the ADLERS Restaurant & Bar on the 13th floor of the hotel of the same name or a drink in the 360 Grad Lounge.

Day 2: With the SKI Plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck we go today on the mountain - from the Innsbruck main station the skiing area is Axamer Lizum ski area is super easy to reach by ski bus. This is also included in your pass, no worries. The „Lize“, as it is called among locals, is such a top insider tip. With over 40 kilometers of slopes and nine lifts, Axamer Lizum is the largest ski area just outside Innsbruck. Here you get to know the alpine-urban lifestyle therefore so properly. And who knows? Maybe you'll make powder buddy friends for life, wouldn't be the first time. But before you dive into Innsbruck's nightlife with your new friends, you should first give yourself a break. For example in the Freizeitzentrum Axams at the foot of Lizum, where admission is also included in SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck. There you can relax in the indoor swimming pool. And that brings us back to nightlife. There you have to decide ... red or blue pill. Okay, I'm kidding - but of course you have to ask yourself whether you'd rather treat yourself to a bit of culture at the Tyrolean Landestheater or, with a bit of luck, grab your next winter vacation at the Tyrolean casino. You are spoiled for choice.

Day 3: The third day of your winter vacation in Innsbruck is also dedicated to snow sports. Today you'll take the SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck to Kühtai, a ski resort at over 2,000 meters. That literally screams for guaranteed snow. Sure, the weather gods often cook their own soup, but the people of Innsbruck know: Powder can be found on one side of the Kühtai valley or the other. That's why! So it's worth getting up early. And after such a day you might like to take it easy in the evening in Innsbruck. For example a visit to the Lichterpark LUMAGICA in front of the Innsbrucker Hofburg - there you can let magical-fantastic light installations with mystic sounds have an effect on you. It's got something

Day 4: What would be a stay in „Innsbrooklyn“ without visiting the Seegrube and the Hafelekars on the Nordkette? Right! You must have seen that. The playground of Innsbruck for extreme athletes or just extreme - of course also included in your SKI plus CITY Pass. You start with the Hungerburgbahn directly from the Hofburg on the Hungerburg. Yes, exactly - from the one castle to the next and then with the gondola on the Seegrube. There you have not only a fantastic view over Innsbruck, but can in the Restaurant Seegrube by DON but you can also have an extensive brunch. And then continue with the gondola to the Hafelekar. Here you are 2,334 meters above sea level - and almost 1,800 above Innsbruck. Hardly anything can top this 360-degree view. Except for the aforementioned (extreme) athletes who, in perfect snow conditions, ski and snowboard their way down the carrinne with a 70 percent gradient. It is similarly wild in the Alpenzoo Innsbruck which is also included in the price of admission at SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck. There, the chamois jump sure-footedly from stone to stone, and the lynx proves that it can climb trees excellently. Cool as an animal. As a contrast, you can also use SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck to visit the Swarovski Kristallwelten glitter and glamour guaranteed.

Day 5: High alpine and high winter today on the Stubai Glacier - the "Kingdom of Snow". Your ski ticket for the glacier is also included in SKI plus CITY Pass, and a ski shuttle will take you from Innsbruck's main train station directly to the valley station of 3S-Eisgratbahn. The modern three-cable gondola takes you up to over 3,000 meters in no time at all. And yes: there truly is a kingdom opening up. Snow-covered peaks, gray rocks, endless expanses and in between slopes as far as the eye can see. The Stubai Glacier is definitely one of the highlights of the 13 ski areas in the Stubai and around Innsbruck that are included in your SKI plus CITY Pass package. Enjoy!

So, that was a suggestion, what you can experience with the SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck so everything. But there's more, why don't you also have a look at the blog of SKI plus CITY and get even more inspiration.
