A market town near the city with excellent public transport links to Innsbruck: Rum offers both urban areas and an old village centre on the mountainside. It is a good starting point for exploring the Karwendel Nature Park, enjoying a hike to one of the many mountain huts or taking a bike ride. The city of Innsbruck is easy to reach by bus or train for sightseeing, shopping, dining out at restaurants or seeing a show at the theatre.

Winter sports

Rum is a good starting point for visiting nearby ski areas. The slopes of Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck are easily accessible thanks to the free ski bus and shuttle service. There is also an indoor swimming pool for winter fun in the water, as well as a refreshing winter walking trail along the River Inn and an artificial ice rink at Römerpark. Our tip: go tobogganing on the natural toboggan run from the Rumer Alm mountain hut.

Summer sports

The "Badesee Rossau" swimming lake and outdoor leisure facility is a great summer destination. This oasis of relaxation is located on the outskirts of Innsbruck and is affectionately called "Baggersee" by the locals. In summer, the banks of the River Inn are also a lovely place to spend a few hours. The path along the river is home to several playgrounds and is also a wonderful place to run, walk and soak up the sun. Alternatively, you can hike up to the Rumer Alm mountain hut or explore the many other paths and trails in the area.

Events in Rum

If you want to get to know rural culture and tradition, Rum is the place for you. The FoRum centre on Dörferstraße road hosts lots of events. Whether you are visiting during Advent, Christmas, carnival or in summer, every season brings with it different customs and traditions to celebrate. During the Christmas season, for example, there are many local nativity scenes to admire. It is possible to view the nativity scenes located in private households on arrangement with the Nativity Scene Association. Other nativity scenes are freely accessible, including those in the nearby churches, such as the Marienkapelle (St. Mary's Chapel), and the one at the music pavilion in the village centre.

A stronghold of carnival tradition

Carnival is the time of the Rumer Muller, when the village of Rum is home to a multitude of traditional carnival characters. The cracking of whips can be heard throughout the village and imaginatively masked characters perform at various parades and festivals. The celebrations come to a head in Rum towards the end of the carnival season. A traditional festival is held on Unsinniger Donnerstag (the Thursday before Shrove Tuesday) and this event gives a great insight into local carnival culture. Every four years, the village hosts an exceptionally large parade, a centuries-old carnival tradition that has even made it onto the UNESCO cultural heritage list.

Winter Hiking
