Summer holidays: hours of sunshine on the golf course or the terrace of a mountain hut
You will struggle to find a more attractive combination of golf and city life than in Innsbruck’s southern holiday villages. Lans and Rinn offer top golf expertise and two magnificent golf courses with breathtaking views. Both the 9-hole golf course in Lans and the 18-hole golf course in Rinn, with its driving range and two weather shelters, welcome locals and visitors alike.
The following day, you can explore the beautiful trails with the free mountain hiking program.
The Zirbenweg trail is regional jewel. The renowned Panoramaweg is an easy botanical hike that starts from the top of the Patscherkofel cable car. Insider tips include benches with breathtaking panoramic views and numerous mountain cranberries along the trail to Bärenbadlacke. The “Naturerlebnis Zirbenwald” (Stone Pine Nature Experience) brings this marvellous native pine to life in a very special way. Check it out, you’ll be amazed!
The Speckbacher trail at the foot of the 2,246-metre-high Patscherkofel is one of the most popular hiking trails in the region and the 25 circular routes around the southern holiday villages also impress with their scenic charm.
Rejuvenation in unspoilt nature can also be found on the wonderful sweeping trails of the Run & Walk Park in Igls-Lans and Rinn. In addition, both families and sports enthusiasts can enjoy the region’s tennis and riding facilities. E-bikes or mountain bikes are a great way to reach the many mountain huts where the hosts delight in pampering you with delicious delights. And as a reward for achieving those hiking and biking goals, or to celebrate your golf successes, why not treat yourself to genuine Tyrolean gourmet cuisine in a traditional guesthouse or mountain hut. Or enjoy taking in the southern flair of the region on a stroll through summery Innsbruck.
A treasured culture and zeitgeist
Culture enthusiasts and people who appreciate alpine customs treasure the villages of Aldrans, Ampass, Lans, Rinn and Sistrans. These villages are home to many traditional associations and groups, such as village bands, shooting clubs and the “Aldranser Huttlern” (traditional characters from Tyrolean carnival celebrations).
The “Mullerschaug’n” in Aldrans and the “Schellerschlagen” in Lans are also part of the carnival celebrations and among the many special events held throughout the year. The villages are also interesting from an architectural standpoint – both the historic “Pestsäule” (plague column) and the romantic twin-towered parish and wedding church in Ampass are worth a visit. The highlight, however, is undoubtedly the Renaissance Ambras Castle with its grand and extensive castle grounds. The castle is a highlight that shouldn’t be missed en route to the nearby capital of the Alps.
The modern zeitgeist is reflected in RollRinn, an event that revolves around integration and disabled sports.
Gourmet cuisine in idyllic villages
The region offers a wonderful symbiosis of activities for relaxation and enjoyment.
This is a place where the beauty of the Alps is not just close enough to see and touch – in the traditional guesthouses and lovingly run mountain huts you can taste it too. Rustic wood dining rooms, friendly service, generous hospitality, regional recipes and the finest local ingredients make this the perfect culinary rendezvous.
