Winter in Rum
Romance, mountain adventures and city flair
Rum is located in one of the most scenic spots in the Tyrolean Inn Valley, nestled amongst beautiful countryside and just waiting to enchant visitors with its winter magic:
The Christmas market in Rum, the sparkling Swarovski Christmas tree at the Christmas Market in Innsbruck, the nativity scenes during the Christmas season, winter walks along the River Inn or in the Karwendel Nature Reserve, tobogganing from the Rumer Alm mountain hut or the Enzian Hütte mountain hut and ice skating or curling with the whole family – these are all memories that will last a lifetime.
On sunny days, winter sports fans can just hop on the free ski bus to the eternally white Stubai Glacier, to the Nordkette ski area for sporty carving fun, to the Muttereralm and Rangger Köpfl for family skiing adventures or to one of the six other ski resorts in Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck. Cross-country skiers can also discover the heavenly beauty of winter on unforgettable, snow-sure routes, some of which are located over 2,000 metres above sea level.
When snow drifts down from the heavens, visitors will delight in a romantic stroll through the market village of Rum or the nearby old town of Innsbruck with its cafés, boutiques, attractions and restaurants – just one more feature of a winter holiday near the city to fall in love with.
Summer in Rum
Summer holidays between the city and the mountains
The two mountain huts above Rum – the Rumer Alm and the Enzian Hütte – are both very popular hiking destinations for locals and holidaymakers alike. They offer beautiful trails, stunning panoramic views and traditional alpine cuisine.
And there’s more: these huts are also located in a trail network that covers 45 kilometres and was awarded the Tyrolean “Bergwegegütesiegel” seal of quality. This extensive network of trails makes it possible for passionate hikers and families to continue on for approx. two hours to the Arzler Alm or Thaurer Alm mountain huts. The area also includes an additional 15 kilometres of running and Nordic walking trails. Whether for relaxed walks in the countryside or high alpine summit tours in the Karwendel Alpine Park – Rum is the perfect starting point for exciting outdoor adventures.
The legendary Way of St. James to Santiago de Compostella also stops in beautiful Rum: It passes the Parish Church of St. George and the picturesque Calvary Chapel before continuing west to St. James' Cathedral in Innsbruck.
Mountain bikers will love the sporty trails on the Nordkette mountain range and the many other bike tours in the surrounding area. E-bikers can enjoy cruising up to the mountain huts with ease and families cherish the paved “Inntalradweg” (Inn Cycle Path), an almost flat bike path that weaves its way west towards Innsbruck and east towards the medieval town of “Hall in Tirol”.
“Badesee Rossau” is a wonderful sunny swimming lake and outdoor leisure facility. The lake itself is 36,000 m² and there is also an additional 53,000 m² for lounging, relaxing and exploring. Activities include two slides, swings, an Indian camp, a football pitch, beach volleyball, outdoor chess and two restaurants. And on rainy days? The indoor swimming pool at the Olympic Village in Rum offers water fun, Swarovski Crystal Worlds features many sparkling attractions and the numerous sights in the city of Innsbruck are just as much fun with an umbrella!
Tradition and culture
Culture that leaves an impression
Rum is located just five kilometres from the Capital of the Alps and a ten minute drive from the medieval town of “Hall in Tirol” – a little cultural treasure lovingly-maintained by its 9,000 or so inhabitants.
Every four years, the village of Rum invites visitors to the “Großer Rumer Mullnerumzug” (Great Rum Muller Parade) to help drive out winter and awaken the spirits of spring. These carnival celebrations feature traditional characters like the “Halbweiße”, “Melcher”, “Zaggler” and “Zottler”, who each represent one of the four seasons. Stops at the carnival floats are always a fun and social experience thanks to the charming display of village humour and community spirit.
From the end of December to mid-January, visitors can admire the many beautiful nativity scenes in Rum. The proud owners are happy to share their clothed woollen dolls, relief-carved nativity scenes and old & hand-painted paper and Sicilian terracotta nativity scenes. Viewings can be arranged with the Rumer Krippenverein (the Nativity Scene Association in Rum).
The FoRum events centre brings people together to enjoy many exciting moments throughout the year: the Christmas Market on the village square, the events held as part of the Tyrol Easter Festival, the open-air cinema in summer, the Beach volleyball A-Cup, the Beach Soccer Cup, many celebrations organised by local clubs and associations and the popular farmers’ market held every Saturday on the square by the bandstand.
