Innsbruck is one of Europe’s most unique cities, with a rich history and a wealth of high quality, easily accessible skiing. And now, visitors to the Capital of the Alps will have the opportunity to take advantage of a whole new ski holiday experience this winter with an all-new SKI plus CITY pass.

In a world first, the SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck offers visitors a unique skiing and sightseeing experience with just one ticket, connecting 13 diverse ski areas in the Stubai Valley and Innsbruck region with 22 attractions in and around the city.

This exciting programme allows skiers and snowboarders access to 300 kilometres of pistes and 111 different lifts, as well as the chance to marvel at the incredible unique landmarks and attractions the region has to offer, all for one affordable fee.

What’s more, the ski bus transfer system and the hop-on, hop-off sightseer buses are also covered by the SKI plus CITY Pass, so you can easily explore the area and all the benefits of your pass at no extra cost.

Peter Unsinn, Head of Market Management at Innsbruck Tourism, said: “This is a world first for us. The pass puts a completely different twist on a typical ski holiday.

“In the morning visitors can be on the slopes 3,000 metres above sea level and then, by the afternoon, soaking up the culture of historic landmarks and museums, or visiting other attractions including the Alpenzoo and Swarovski Crystal Worlds.”

The pass offers a diverse array of sightseeing opportunities, including the historical marvels of the Hofburg Imperial Palace, the Hofkirche Court Church, the dizzying heights of the world-famous Bergisel ski jump and the Chambers of Curiosities at Ambras Castle – to name but a few! In addition to the many cultural sights, you also have the ability to enjoy ice skating, bike hire and the choice of three indoor swimming pools.
