Holidays at peak level
In and around Innsbruck, hospitality is top priority. As pioneers in alpine tourism, hoteliers here are constantly setting new standards. And as usual, in time for the start of the winter season, the region excites with new hotel highlights.

At the ski resort of Kühtai near Innsbruck, new holiday experiences await visitors: the 4-star superior hotel Mooshaus combines traditional Tyrolean comfort with an exclu-sive range of services for the discerning guest. The wellness area is particularly worth the trip. Where else can you swim at 2,050 metres above sea level while gazing at the spectacular mountain scenery surrounding you? The 100-metre long “Endless Sky Pool” promises the proverbial R&R at the highest level. There is even something spe-cial for the younger guests: the Ravensburger play area for children and teenagers extends over an area of 700m2 and boasts, among other things, a climbing wall, a shelf packed full with Ravensburger games and books and a touchscreen children's computer for kids 4+ years. Then there is also a teen’s lounge with Wi-Fi and gaming stations for the older ones. (www.mooshaus.at)

You can also spend your holiday in majestic style at the traditional Jagdschloss hotel, which is also situated just 30 minutes away from Innsbruck in the high-lying valley of Kühtai. The stately hotel with its imperial flair is currently being expanded and will welcome guests in winter 2017/18 with a modern extension housing apartments, a restaurant and a sports shop.

Experience Innsbruck’s local mountain anew
It is the second living room of all Innsbruckers with possibly the most stunning views far and wide: Patscherkofel mountain. Since 1928, visitors and local people have taken a cable car up to the lofty heights to ski down the mountain’s Olympic slopes and hike through its beautiful pine forests. This winter, Innsbruck will open a new chapter in the history of its legendary local mountain with the newly installed Patscherkofelbahn cable cars. The 10-seater gondolas of the ultra-modern cable car will transport up to 2,600 people per hour to the also-newly-built mountain station at 2,248 metres above sea level. For the latest information on the construction progress and the planned reopening go to: blog.patscherkofelbahn.at

New perspectives on the Nordkette
It takes less than 20 minutes to reach the Seegrube mountain station, at an elevation of 1,905 metres, thanks to Innsbruck's Nordkette Cable Cars. Sport, culinary pleas-ures and breathtaking views of the city are the peak attractions up here. The new Per-spektivenweg (perspectives path), designed by renowned architects Snøhetta, is yet another reason to visit one of Innsbruck's most beautiful viewpoints. The architects’ philosophy fits perfectly into this place where city meets mountains: architecture is built landscape - landscape, which defines an architectural space that both expresses itself in socio-political terms and opens up possibilities. Thus, the architectural ele-ments made of Corten steel develop along the Nordkette Perspektivenweg and, in conjunction with philosophical quotes from Wittgenstein, create a space to view and admire the landscape from different perspectives.

Rock meets mountains: Hard Rock Café Innsbruck
Prince’s purple jacket, drums from Motörhead, Beyoncé‘s dress, Johnny Cash’s boots and a guitar from Rammstein - these and even more exciting exhibits have been making the hearts of all music fans beat faster for several weeks now. Austria’s second Hard Rock Café opened its doors in the heart of the city just recently. Lovers of hard guitar riffs, good food and lively drinks certainly won’t be disappointed by the new 600 m2 venue that extends over two floors. Innsbruck's Hard Rock Café impresses its guests with a restaurant area, where regional products play a leading role and a wide range of vegetarian and vegan dishes are on offer. To top it all off, there is also a shop and a stage, which welcomes both young local talent and Tyro-lean rock veterans to perform regular concerts that shake the historic walls of Maria-Theresien-Straße.

Stage 12 opens in the centre of Innsbruck
Right in the heart of Innsbruck's historic centre, hotel Stage 12 puts on an elegant show. On the “programme” is the colourful hustle and bustle of Innsbruck’s famous street “Maria-Theresien-Straße”, the pulsating centre of the city. Internationally re-nowned architects, Baumschlager, Hutter and Partners, are responsible for the archi-tecture and planning of STAGE 12 and they have carefully transformed the listed building into a retreat with 120 rooms, breakfast buffet, wellness area and bar.

A vibrant monastery history
Not only is the city itself an absolute paradise for those interested in culture, but the surrounding municipalities have a great deal to offer too. About 40 kilometres west of Innsbruck, Stams Monastery can be found in the village of the same name. Founded in 1273, the Cistercian Order and its Basilica are still impressive places of monastic life. The new museum will open there on 5th November. The rooms of the magnificent building not only provide rare insights into everyday life at the monastery over eight centuries, but they also display precious sacred treasures and curiosities, including an astronomical table dating back to the year 1425.

Culinary delights in a historic ambience

A true, traditional Tyrolean business will be opening its doors again this Autumn: Mel-launer Hof in Pettnau, situated on the Salzstraße road, is probably one of the most beautiful historic guesthouses in the country. The splendid facade alone illustrates that travellers have been coming here for hundreds of years and names such as Rittersaal (knight’s hall) and the Andreas Hofer room take you back through the history of Tyrol. With a keen instinct and vast experience, the new occupants have brought old and new together perfectly. Now, not only can you enjoy culinary delights in a historic ambience, you can also dream of bygone times in rooms that offer every modern comfort in centuries-old walls. (www.mellaunerhof.at)

Quickly and comfortably up to Rangger Köpfl
This coming winter season, visitors can look forward to greater comfort and new offers at another mountain near Innsbruck too. The Oberperfuss ski lift company has replaced the old draglift with a new 8-person cable car. It is not only skiers who will benefit - you can now reach the longest toboggan run in the region (10 kilometres) comfortably and without the climb to enjoy superb winter fun, plus there are many new winter hiking opportunities to explore as well.
