Already in the 19th century, Igls near Innsbruck was a popular destination for many summer visitors from Innsbruck. As a consequence, a charming Tyrolean holiday village emerged. As in 1964 and 1976 Innsbruck was host town of the Olympic Winter Games and the natural and artificial luge competitions were held in Igls, this village also drew international attention.

Igls stands for holidays on a sunny plateau. Mt. Patscherkofel invites to pleasant walks, and the 9-hole course of the Golfclub Innsbruck-Igls to a golf play in front of an enchanting Alpine scenery. Other leisure time activities include a cool jump into beautiful Lake Lans, and the possibility to enjoy a treatment in the Kneipp facility. From Igls, the Patscherkofel Cable Car takes you to the local mountain of Innsbruck. One of its paths leads in five minutes to the highest located alpine garden of Austria, where the alpine flora and fauna flourishes in the heart of the Tux Alps.

In winter, the Patscherkofel Skiing Area renders Igls a popular holiday destination, characterised by a family run as well as the Olympic ski slope, where you can ski in the footsteps of the Austrian ski stars Franz Klammer and Hermann At the Patscherkofel valley station there is a kids park for families, called Sunny Kids Park, which awaits you with three different practice areas.
