Imagine if there was a card that would make your vacation even more enjoyable - a kind of "Magic Card" that allows you to use all means of transport at your vacation destination free of charge and to take part in guided hikes, which gives you discounts on numerous indoor and outdoor activities as well as theater tickets and other cultural highlights. And how cool would it be if you could also combine your city trip with a little fun on the slopes - free of charge, of course. That sounds pretty cool, doesn't it? And now imagine, here in Innsbruck there is something like that: the Welcome Card or rather the Welcome Card plus! What exactly it's all about, how it works, where and how you can get it, I'll tell you in this blog post.

A treat for every Innsbruck vacationer

Already from two nights in Innsbruck or one of the places in the region you get the Welcome Card. From three nights you get the Welcome Card plus. You will receive your card directly - and completely free of charge - at your accommodation. In principle, the Welcome Card/Welcome Card plus is available to every landlord (whether hotel, guesthouse, apartment, etc.). It's best to check right here whether your accommodation is a partner business. As soon as you have Welcome Card, the fun can begin. As mentioned at the beginning, public transport including ski buses can be used free of charge at any time. So you can make trips around Innsbruck comfortably, without additional costs and absolutely environmentally friendly! Believe me - it's worth it!

Unforgettable experiences with the whole family

For those who don't want to go off on their own, the Welcome Card/Welcome Card plus is also the perfect choice. You can expect a varied, guided activity program according to the motto: "Hiking is not only a pleasure in summer, but also a pleasure in winter!" At this point I would like to make my first recommendation: the alpaca hike in Oberperfuss. We had the pleasure last year, and my kids are still talking about it today - me too, by the way! If you want, take a look at my blog post from last year.

Action in the city, tranquility in nature

There are probably few cities where urban city life and nature are as close together as here. If you're vacationing in Innsbruck, be sure to take advantage of it. My tip for this is the "City-Country Winter Hike in Innsbruck". It is especially suitable for families or people who like to take it a little easier. Meeting point is Tourismus Information at Burggraben, right at the entrance to the old town. From there you walk about three hours through the woods at the foot of the Nordkette. Enjoy the wonderful landscape, no matter if it is snowing, sunny or cloudy! It is always wonderful.

Bad weather program with the Welcome Card

If the weather doesn't cooperate at all or you simply don't feel like hiking or classic sightseeing, I recommend families to visit the FLIP LAB or in the Joy. Both facilities are located in Völs and can be easily reached by public transport from Innsbruck.

En„JOY“ with the Welcome Card

At Joy is a large indoor playground with everything a child's heart desires. There are slides, air field hockey tables, a spinning tower, trampolines, bouncy castles, go-karts and much more. Boredom is guaranteed not to arise. Owners of Welcome Card receive a 20 percent discount on admission.

Really work out

20 percent discount is also available at the FLIP LABwhich we - that is, my family - have already tested very extensively. If they let him, my son would spend every free minute in the indoor trampoline park. I can't blame him for that. The FLIP LAB is a huge room full of trampolines. There are jump towers from which you can drop onto Bagjump air pillows, a course where you can show off your speed, and so much more. What child (and what adult) wouldn't have fun there?

Ice magic in Telfs

Ice skating brings back childhood memories for me. Especially in my secondary school days, I spent many hours at the ice skating rink of the Telfer Sportzentrum, not only in gym class, but also in my free time. If you saw me on the ice today, you would hardly believe it. I clearly have no talent. But that is not the point. Much more interesting for you is that you get with the Welcome Card/Welcome Card plus you get free admission into the ice rink. Thanks to the covered artificial ice r ink, you are not dependent on the weather and can plunge into the winter fun at any time. Of course you can rent skates on site (for a fee). The journey takes place completely problem-free and naturally again free of charge with the train. From the train station Telfs-Pfaffenhofen you walk a good 15 minutes to the ice rink.

Even more sport

By the way: Opposite the skating rink is the Bergstation: Boulder- & Kletterzentrum Telfs. Here you get with the Welcome Card/Welcome Card plus 50 percent off the normal rate (one-way ticket). And to top it off: At Telfer Bad also offers a 50 percent discount on admission to the baths (day ticket, without sauna). So how about a trip to the market town at the foot of the Hohen Munde: first do your laps on the ice or work up a sweat climbing and then relax in the warm water at Telfer Bad.

Swimming fun in Axams

Another tip for relaxed and family-friendly splashing around is a visit to the Freizeitzentrum Axams. When our children were younger, the spacious children's area was our highlight. With a baby pool, three water slides and lots of play opportunities, it's an absolute paradise for little bathers. Now that my boys are a bit older and into more "action", the heated outdoor area with torrent is their favorite. The beautiful lounging and resting area around the pools invites them to relax. Owners of Welcome Card/Welcome Card plus receive a 50 percent discount on pool admission (4-hour swimming card, without sauna).

Sleuths and puzzle foxes, watch out!

Relaxation is followed by excitement. Sleuths, pay attention, here comes a tip for you. The Krimi-Trail Innsbruck offers a combination of outdoor escape game, scavenger hunt and mystery city tour. You are investigators and have to solve the background of a mysterious threatening letter by proving teamwork, logic and skill. Are you ready? Then let's go! You can start at any time without pre-registration, and there is a 20 percent discount withWelcome Card .

Tobogganing fun and fun on the slopes

Owners of Welcome Card plus get a very special treat: a ride up and down the mountain with the Oberperfuss cable car. A highlight that you should not miss. You can find more information here and in this blog post.

I wish all Innsbruck vacationers a wonderful stay and am sure that you will have a great time in the alpine metropolis with the Welcome Card/Welcome Card plus. In this sense, enjoy the winter!
