Forecast

An area of low pressure swiftly extended from France to Central Europe yesterday. It would be nice if it left as quickly as it arrived! It will not do us this favour, however! On the contrary, it will remain here and we will have to wait for it to clear. We will thus get a rainy summer day.

Tendency

On Wednesday we will see an improvement in the weather. On Thursday, sunny and hot weather will return!

More olympic excitement

The Olympic Mountain Races in Axams - Axamer Lizum in 1964 and 1965

The name Axams instantly brings one image to mind: the Winter Olympic Games. In 1964 and 1976, sporting history was made in and around Axams, as well as in Innsbruck and its other holiday villages. All eyes were on Tyrol, the athletes and the exciting competitions.

But the international success story doesn’t end there. In 1964 and 1965, Axams and Axamer Lizum hosted another spectacular race that attracted international interest: the “Olympischen Bergrennen Axamer Lizum” (Axamer Lizum Olympic Mountain Race). This time, the competitions weren’t held on the ski slopes – they didn’t even happen during winter.

These competitions involved touring cars and motorbikes that engaged in daring head-to-head races on the 7.1-kilometre-long road that was built for the 9th Winter Olympic Games. The high-powered vehicles and bold manoeuvres thrilled the crowd – it was motorsports at the “highest level”, right in the heart of the Alps.

Below are some memorable images of these events, kindly provided by the Technischen Museum Wien (Vienna Technical Museum), Artur Frenzlau.
