Summer holiday at the foot of Patscherkofel
The sunny location just above Innsbruck and Tirolean hospitality make your holiday in Igls an unforgettable experience. If you want to spend active and vital holidays but relax and unwind at the same time, then this is definitely the right place. How about a fascinating tour on one of the numerous hiking paths at Patscherkofel or along the well-known Zirbenweg path? It starts on top of the Patscherkofel mountain and takes you along an idyllic scenery to the top of the Glungezer mountain. On particularly sunny and warm days you can take a refreshing plunge in Lake Lansersee, which is crystal clear and even has drinking water quality. Another insider’s tip: Visit the new “Pay and Play” golf court where playing golf is also possible without a membership card. Furthermore, there are many other golf courts in Lans and Rinn. Great relaxation is guaranteed at the Kneipp facilities and the Spa. Culture fans will also enjoy their stay in Igls. A popular excursion is for example the Heiligwasser pilgrimage church, which can also be easily reached with the Patscherkofl lifts. The capital city of Tirol, Innsbruck, is only 5 km away and always worth a visit due to its numerous sights – enjoy the cultural diversity in Tirol.
