Innsbruck is a city in western Austria known for its winter sports weather. The city has hosted the Winter Olympics twice and is a noted destination for skiers and snowboarders. Purchase discount flights to Innsbruck using the easy booking tools on ebookers.
The city is served by the Innsbruck Kranebitten Airport, located 2.5 miles from the centre of the city. The airport is very close to the Alps, and the winds that whip around the mountains, particularly in winter, make landing in Innsbruck a bit complicated. Lufthansa, EasyJet, and Austrian Airlines operate flights into the airport year-round from Frankfurt, London, and Vienna respectively, and a number of other airlines are available from other European cities on a seasonal basis.
City Bus F, located right outside the terminal, will take you into the heart of Innsbruck and runs every 15 minutes. The cost is around â‚¬1.80, and the trip takes approximately 18 to 20 minutes. Many car hire companies are also available in the terminal's main hall, including O-Rent, Hertz, Avis, Megadrive, Europcar and Sixt. If you don't need a rental car, you can hire one of the many taxis waiting outside the terminal. They will take you anywhere in Innsbruck, including many of the area resorts where winter sports enthusiasts often stay to go skiing.
Innsbruck has blustery winters marked by ample snowfall, which makes it a major destination for skiing and other winter sports. The snow season generally starts in December, when the average daily high is just 2Â°C. The average daily low dips to -4Â°C, so be prepared to put on several layers of winter clothing if you plan to spend any time outside. Summers are considerably warmer, though, and by July, temperatures rise to an average high of 26Â°C. September is generally very rainy, though the weather is not yet cold enough for ice or snow.
Though the area may be most famous for winter sports, there are plenty of fun things to do indoors for those who don't care to be out in the cold. The Goldenes Dachl, which translates to â€˜Golden Roofâ€™, is a building with a roof made out of thousands of copper tiles, giving it a unique look. The Triumphal Arch is a landmark with many marble reliefs depicting life in this historic city over the ages. Finally, the Swarovski Kristallwelten is a spectacular homage to the famous Swarovski crystals that includes a waterfall and 12 tons of stones at the entrance.
Innsbruck is a scenic city with views of the Alps and plenty of places to go skiing. It also has unique buildings and architecture for those who don't like the snow. Book domestic and international flights to Innsbruck using ebookers, where you can also take care of your hotel and car rental needs.
