Winter sports

Rum is a good starting point for visiting nearby ski areas. 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…

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.

An old custom: "Scheibenschlagen"

The ancient custom of "Scheibenschlagen", or disc slinging, is a popular tradition in the village of Rum near Innsbruck. The pastime even forms part of Austria's Intangible Cultural Heritage. The tradition involves slinging glowing wooden discs from a wooden launch ramp. As the wooden disc is launched into the night sky, the "flinger" recites a short verse or dedicates their throw to a specific person. The aim of the custom is to drive out winter. In Rum, the Scheibenschlagen ceremony always takes place on the first Sunday of Lent, namely the first Sunday after Ash Wednesday, which marks the end of the carnival season. At the ceremony, both participants and spectators come together to enjoy traditional delicacies and hot mulled wine.
