Flight London Gatwick - Innsbruck

Welcome to Innsbruck (INN), the Tyrolian winter wonderland of your dreams. The city calls itself „the capital of the Alps“ and can deliver on that claim. Innsbruck is situated in a breath-taking surrounding in the valley of the Inn River, surrounded by the mighty summits of the Karwendel range and the Patscherkofel, the home mountain of the city. High above the city is the Bergiselschanze, where the enthusiasts of ski-jumping gather to see the daring jumpers fly down the mountain side. Whatever your favourite winter-sport may be, in the surrounding areas of Innsbruck you will find what you are looking for. The Olympia Skiworld Innsbruck lures with 9 skiing areas in world famous areas like the Stubai glacier, with levels of difficulty ranging from beginner to professional racer. The adventurous freeriders can go off-slope in four different areas to make their trail in untouched powder. After a day on the board, skis or sleigh the hearty Tyrolian cuisine will give you the energy to explore the beautiful city. The historic centre is from the late medieval period, with the golden roof, the “Goldenes Dachl“, as its most famous feature. It had been built for Emperor Maximilian I. (1459 – 1519), nicknamed „the last knight“ because he liked to watch the tourney from his high place under that roof. In the winter the city has all the features you might imagine in a fairy-tale town, it just happens to be real. The unique combination of modern city, quaint historic town and unparalleled winter-sport opportunities makes Innsbruck a perfect winter travel destination.

It's the light at the end of the tunnel: those who take a seat here will be sated, but you could never get enough of the panorama views. The upper floor of the city hall galleries has a unique position that boasts an unbelievable view of the city, the mountains and almost the entire region of Tyrol, as it appears. It may be easy to look past your plate, but don't look too far as what is served on plates here is truly a feast for the eyes. You can expect artfully arranged buffalo mozzarella, colourful baby leaf salads and carefully decorated tomato tagliatelle. It's all mouth-watering stuff that harmonises with the view. The farmer's dumplings won 14 points whilst being tested and were one of the many reasons why this restaurant has a 'Haube' - Austria's equivalent of the Michelin Star. The noble wines from Austria and Italy put the icing on the cake, but aren't the only sources of shining light to be seen in the 360°wine bar.

What to see in Innsbruck
It will be a park for eternity: The Hofgarten already has 600 years behind it. But where Sissi once went for a stroll, club-goers now dance around the clock. It's seen the renaissance and saw the baroque period come and go, rulers have reigned and stollers have gotten lost. Regardless of what this place has seen: strollers from all around the world come to explore the biggest parkland of all time. The pavilion was built in 1733 and some plants were personally planted by Maria Theresia herself. The tropical house was built in the '60s and boasts 1,700 plant species for visitors to explore, as well as changing exhibitions. So eveything in the Hofgarten must be antiquated, right? No way! In the evenings there's a round-the-world trip rather than a travel through time: when the turntables light up on Thursday nights, hits from Jamaica, Paris, Rio and L.A. pump the speakers and the trendy audience set the dancefloor on fire. If Sissi would've known... But perhaps the dignified restaurant might've appeal to her even more. Those who take a seat are treated with local specialties such as excellent beef broth and farmer's cheese dumplings. But it doesn't matter which scene you belong to , or if you are only interested in the culinary delights, the Hofgarten is worth the trip.

Hotel Sailer
The Hotel Sailer is one of those typical Innsbruck hotels. It combines skillful tradition with comfort and enchants its guests with an extra dose of Tyrolean style. Those who haven`t yet bought themselves a traditional Tyrolean hat will at least put one on here, simply to soak up the ambience even more. Or even a pipe, which fits like a glove in the farmer`s parlour. Wooden stools, wooden tables and embroidered cushions are the perfect ingredients for a proper feast in the hotel restaurant. Austria`s best wines are also on offer and as Italy isn`t that far away, the hotel has expanded its wine list across the border. However, they didn`t stop there - you will also find wines from Chile, California and Australia. The rooms all strictly hold to the traditional Tyrolean style and when you want to completely switch off there`s always the wellness area with its sauna, steam bath and magnificent view of the Tyrolean mountainscape.
