Axams, Birgitz, Grinzens
Three villages. Three times as much holiday fun.
In the heart of the mountains and surrounded by adventure. The three charming villages of Axams, Birgitz and Grinzens enjoy a prime location just ten to fourteen kilometres from Innsbruck. Each village is unique, fascinating and inviting. Characterised by the family-friendly atmosphere, the many delights that make hearts soar and mouths water and an inspiring ambience of exuberance and joie de vivre.
These villages are a gateway to the spectacular Stubai Alps and very near the magnificent Kalkkögel mountain range – an area of natural beauty that encompasses the two-time Olympic ski resort of Axamer Lizum. The villages are surrounded by fairytale forests, hiking trails, gorgeous viewpoints and rustic mountain huts that offer regional delicacies and cool refreshments in both summer and winter alike – a true Tyrolean mountain experience. In Axams, there is also a large leisure centre with swimming pools, saunas, a tepidarium, a steam room and massages – a temple of wellness and a highlight for relaxation-seekers, families and sports enthusiasts alike. The “Postkutscherhof” offers culture and tradition galore with its legendary “Tyrolean evenings from 1900”, which take onlookers on an exciting journey back to the time of Tyrol’s ancestors.
Winter holidays in Axams, Birgitz, Grinzens
Olympic winter fun west of Innsbruck
In 1964 and 1976, the Winter Olympic Games gripped people around the world and all eyes turned to Axams and Axamer Lizum, as well as the nearby holiday villages of Birgitz and Grinzens
-and the region became a top destination for snow-lovers, winter sports fans and skiing enthusiasts.
It’s no wonder – the Axamer Lizum ski area is one of the most diverse and snow-sure ski resorts in Tyrol. The well-maintained pistes of all difficulty levels, the family slopes, the gorgeous powder runs and the new fun & freestyle parks full of adrenaline-pumping action are a real winter sports highlight.
Sun and snow can really work up an appetite: luckily, hearty alpine cuisine, Tyrolean specialities and delicious refreshments served on lovely sun terraces with magnificent panoramic views are a great way to replenish those energy levels. There is also plenty of family excitement to be had off the pistes – endless tobogganing fun awaits on the illuminated Axams-Axamer Lizum toboggan run and on the runs from the Pleisenhütte, Kemater Alm and Birgitzer Alm mountain huts.
Winter also offers sporting enjoyment beyond the mountain peaks: Ice skating is a wonderful way to enjoy a little winter flair. The leisure centre in Axams (link) offers swimming and spa indulgence – invigorating sauna sessions, soothing massages and tranquil relaxation zones grant wonderful revitalisation for body and soul after adventurous days on the slopes.
