History of Igls

Igls stands for holidays on a sunny plateau! Enjoy the warm sunrays that stroke your skin, while walking along one of plentiful hiking paths on the foot of the Patscherkofel mountain and surroundings. Other leisure time activities include playing golf on the 9-hole golf course “Olympia Golf Igls” as well as a cool jump into beautiful Lake Lans. You also have the possibility to enjoy a treatment in the Spa Park with Kneipp facility. If you decide to make a hike in the surroundings, the popular Patscherkofel cable car takes you into the world of mountains from May to October. One of the trails takes you to the highest located alpine garden of Austria, where the alpine flora and fauna flourishes in an area comprising two hectares. If you keep on walking, stop for a bite to eat in one of the cosy refuges!

In winter the skiing area Patscherkofel renders Igls a popular holiday destination, characterised by about 18 km of ski slopes. You decide whether to take the wide family slope or the Olympic ski slope, where you can ski in the footsteps of Franz Klammer and Hermann Maier. However, schedule also some calm breaks and enjoy the view on Innsbruck and on the Stubai, Wipptal and Inntal valleys. By the way, an interesting fact for families: at the Patscherkofel valley station there is the “Sunny Kids Park”
