Even at first glance, the trendy and above all sporty "vibe" of the city makes itself felt. Cyclists with ski equipment on their shoulders are just as common a sight in the heart of the city as mountain bikers
in full kit.
But Innsbruck also has so much to offer in addition to the trails and ski slopes: unusual cultural events, a wide range of excellent shops and a multitude of trendy pubs where concerts and poetry slams are regularly held.
Act like a local and set off on a walk or, perhaps even better, a bike ride and see where the locals exercise, have a good time and party
- The Innsbruck Climbing Centre is also home to world champions like Jakob Schubert from Innsbruck.
- The Innsbruck Climbing Centre hosted the 2018 Sport Climbing World Cup and was awarded the "American Architecture Prize" in 2017.
- It’s well worth having a look at the events calendar. In summer there are music festivals such as the Wetterleuchten Festival on the Seegrube, the Bonanza Festival which is all about music, art and performance, and the Sonnendeck events (on the River Inn promenade behind the university’s "Geiwi" tower). In winter Cloud 9 parties with top DJs on the Seegrube pull in the crowds.
- In summer people gather on the Sowi campus to enjoy sunset picnics and outdoor cinema - at the "Silent Cinema", the cosy open-air cinema with two-channel sound.
