Find your adventure!

Do you opt for excitement over relaxation? In Innsbruck, a multitude of adventures await! Experience the region from a bird's eye view: with scenic flights, paragliding and hot air ballooning. Adrenaline junkies can bungee jump from the almost 200-metre-high Europabrücke bridge. Or do you love the water? Then our tips are: kayaking, canyoning and diving. We also recommend a ride down the Olympic ice track in Igls, either in a guest bobsleigh with a professional pilot, head first on a skeleton sled or in a wok.

Is your dream adventure a little less adrenaline fuelled? If so, why not play a game of skittles? People have been enjoying bowling fun at the local inns and folk festivals for centuries. Or take a Ziesel out for a ride and put your driving skills to the test on one of these open-fronted mini-excavators. There are, of course, also plenty of opportunities to enjoy the classic mini-golf. Or if you are looking for a bad weather activity, check out laser tag, escape rooms and billiards.

Special adventures in winter

Sleep in an igloo, speed head first down an Olympic ice track or ride down the pistes on a bike. You can experience all this here in Innsbruck. Read on to learn more about the exceptional adventures on offer in addition to skiing.

The Igloo Village Hotel in Kühtai

Stay in an igloo and enjoy a delicious cheese fondue. At the Igloo Village in Kühtai, you can also learn how to build igloos or visit the sauna. Finally, enjoy a hot mug of mulled wine at the igloo bar.

Snow biking

Jump on a fat bike and ride through the snow. They have extra-wide tyres for extra grip.

Skeleton

Head first down the ice track: skeleton requires courage. Great fun for speed freaks!

Wok Race

German TV host Stefan Raab first created the Wok Race. It is a race down the ice track but sitting in Asian cooking pots instead of on a luge or bobsleigh. Very funny for spectators and racers alike!

Ziesel in Kühtai

Ride around on vehicles resembling small excavators. The Ziesel are named after a cheeky, nimble rodent. You can head out on a Ziesel to explore the landscape around the high alpine ski resort of Kühtai at over 2,000 metres above sea level.

Race down the ice track at supersonic speed

If you’re looking for a real test of nerves, a guest bobsleigh ride is the perfect adventure for you. Join an expert pilot and brakeman and speed down the Olympic ice track in Igls. This thrilling experience can only be found in Innsbruck! 

Puzzles and races

Detective skills and teamwork are required if you want to uncover the secrets of the escape rooms. This activity is ideal for families and small groups. Or would you like to put your tactical skills to the test? If so, we recommend a round of laser tag. While motor fans should definitely check out the go-kart track.

Escape rooms

Solve exciting puzzles as a team: Innsbruck's escape rooms offer tricky challenges on a variety of different topics for amateur detectives to enjoy.

Laser games

Laser tag provides action-packed entertainment. Ideal as a bad weather activity on rainy days. Read more about the facilities available in Innsbruck here.

Go-karting

Car racing on a smaller scale: the go-kart tracks in the Innsbruck region offer fast driving fun.

FLIP LAB trampoline park

2,000 square metres of jumping and bouncing. Flip Lab is the most modern trampoline, parkour and freestyle park in Tyrol. You can choose from fun, interactive, bungee, advanced and Olympic trampolines. Plus a wallwalk, airwalk, battle beam and much more. Fun in all weather conditions. 

Take off

The chance to explore Innsbruck from the air is particularly appealing. Climb into a plane or a hot air balloon – or go paragliding and feel the wind in your face. The perspective is unique, the views too. On the next page, we'll provide more information about the options available in Innsbruck.

Balloon rides

From high up in the sky, you get the best views of the Innsbruck region. Enjoy the freedom of a hot air balloon ride.

Paragliding

Feel the wind in your face as you glide through the air. Paragliding gives you a bird's eye view of the world.

Scenic flights

You probably get the best views of Innsbruck on a scenic flight. A big bonus: you can see all the way from Innsbruck into the surrounding regions from up in a plane, giving you wide open views of the many mountain peaks and valleys all around. It is an amazing sight!

Dive in

Is water your element? Then dive into the many possibilities around Innsbruck. Pristine gorges and rivers are perfect for canyoning, for example. You can also experience white water in a kayak or on a rafting adventure. And did you know that you can surf on the River Inn? Even in the city!

Canyoning

A full body workout jumping and scrambling through gorges and steams – this is canyoning. For anyone who dares, there are lots of canyoning adventures to choose from in the Innsbruck region.

Kayaking

Helmet on, grab your paddle and off you go – down the rivers of the Alps. You can experience white water up close on a kayaking adventure in the area around Innsbruck.

Rafting

Lots of fun in a big boat: if canyoning is a bit too daring for you and kayaking is a bit too lonely, why not try rafting? Several people sit in the same boat and navigate the currents and rapids together as they paddle down the river. Teamwork is vital and is rewarded with heaps of fun.

Surfing the Inn

Innsbruck is an unusual kind of surfing town. Instead of palm trees and metre-high surf, the green waters of the River Inn await – and you surf at the heart of the city!

Stand-up paddling

Standing on a surfboard with a paddle in your hand: stand-up paddling is basically rowing without a boat. It keeps you fit, works different muscle groups and allows you to enjoy nature to the full.

Let go

If someone jumped off a bridge, would you do it too? We say, it depends on the bride. If you're talking about the Europabrücke bridge, then definitely! At almost 200 metres from the ground, this is a bungee jump for adrenaline junkies. The Europabrücke bridge is part of the Brenner motorway, which runs from Innsbruck to Italy, and it is one of the most spectacular locations for bungee jumping in the world. This jump is not for the faint of heart – but an absolute must for daring adventurers!

Casino Innsbruck

Experience an unforgettable night at Casino Innsbruck. Whether at a murder mystery dinner or sitting at the gaming tables – try your luck!

Fun all round!

Skittles has a long tradition in Austria and has been providing entertainment at folk festivals and in taverns for centuries. It is very similar to bowling and, in Innsbruck, you can enjoy both versions of the game. There are also places to play pool, billiards or snooker. Or would you rather a round of mini-golf? We have put together all of the options for you on the following pages.

Bowling

Special adventures in summer

Are you looking for special summer entertainment? Our tips: Visit the Olympic ice track in Igls where you can enjoy speeding down the track in a guest bobsleigh – in summer on wheels instead of runners. A hit for the whole family: the mountain carts at Muttereralm. You're sure to make it back down into the valley quicker on one of these little carts than you would on foot. Or if you’d rather a slightly bigger vehicle, why not take a Ziesel out for a long ride?

Guest bobsleigh rides in summer

An Olympic experience in summer. Race down the ice track in a guest bobsleigh. In summer, the runners are swapped for wheels but the ride is just as fast as in winter.

Mountain carts at Muttereralm

An alpine go-kart track: Muttereralm adventure mountain is a great destination for the whole family and home to the Muttereralm mountain carts in summer. The mountain cart track runs all the way down into the valley (it’s the toboggan run in winter) and you can speed down it on a mountain cart. Riders must be at least 10 years old and a minimum height of 1.50 metres.

Ziesel in Axams

The Ziesel is an innovative vehicle made in Tyrol. You can take one of these excavator-style transport devices for a ride at the Offroad Arena in Axams.
