As early as the 19th century residents of Innsbruck would travel up to the ski village of Igls to escape the heart of the city and enjoy the spectacular views. Today, Igls has a population of about 2,000 inhabitants and is still a popular ski resort in winter and hiking area in summer. This delightful village has a special location, lying on a sunny plateau above Innsbruck. On your doorstep are meadows, forests, and a huge range of walking opportunities yet historic Innsbruck is only a 15 minute scenic bus ride away. You will also enjoy the handful of quaint shops and cafes, and the Patcherkofel cable-car for magnificent alpine panoramas.
