Summer feeling in Innsbruck and its regions
The sun shines pleasantly warm, a soft breeze wafts over your skin and your feet are dangling in the clear water. Just an example of a pedal boat ride across the Lanser See. Green meadows, grandiose trees and the scent of freshly-mown grass surrounds you. The sparkling surface cannot fail to tempt you to relax and take the occasional dip in the water.
Even a hike can tempt you into new grounds. High above, a sweeping gaze into the distance; over lush meadows, rugged mountain tops below the blue sky, and the panorama of Innsbruck. Down in the valley awaits a delicious reward; the ice cream shops in and around Innsbruck tempt you with their sweet classics and varieties of exotic flavours. Summer in the Capital of the Alps is a real pleasure, and we'll show you its most beautiful side.
Crystal clear water threads it way through the mountains directly into Innsbruck's water system. Perfect for on the go. Countless drinking fountains provide free refreshment for the thirsty. You can find them all in out interactive map.
Bathing, playing, cooling down
A hot tip for even hotter days - the bathing lakes and ponds in and around Innsbruck. A jump in the water is perfect when the temperatures rise. At Natterer See we have a fun-packed programme for children, while the bathing lake in Rossau (known locally as 'Baggersee') ensures water fun in the city. For those who just want to dip their toes in the water, there are plenty of mountain streams and Kneipp pools.
Children's play areas in the region
An exciting world of adventure in the shade of large trees; children climb from treehouse to treehouse over rope bridges in Muttereralm Park, while the neighbouring obstacle course ensures a whole lot of fun. Perfect for the little ones to run around, play and learn about nature. Adventure playgrounds with water wheels, slides and much more are dotted around the villages surrounding Innsbruck. An autonomous children's programme for a successful family holiday.
Rejuvenation for tired feet.
Taut calves since 1850. Sebastian Kneipp discovered the power of cold water in the middle of the 19th century, a power that refreshes tired legs, improves circulation and awakens the spirit on hot days. The fitness pioneer tested his hydrotherapy on himself, and even the Pope became a great devotee. Try it out. There are Kneipp pools in Axams, Igls, Gries, Lans and Kematen. It's only a short walk through the cold water, but it does an awful lot of good.
Summertime is camping time
In a field with a view of the mountains, directly at the water, or near to the city; Innsbruck and its regions offer ample camping opportunities. From rustic nature to luxurious glamping at Natterer See. Remember though, that camping is only allowed at designated camping sites.
