    "I'll be on the sundeck!" - that's what you may hear students shout in the summer after their lectures. When the sun shines, they set up their evening base camp directly at the Inn in front of the university. With beer tables, sound systems and holiday feeling. Just come there and groove with them into the evening!

    Walk to the top of the Patscherkofel

    Yeah, it's a classic. But classics don't exist without a reason! If you start at the mountain railway station, the hike to the summit of Innsbruck's local mountain takes about 50 minutes. Then the amazing view from the top.  And the sun terrace of the Patscherkofel mountain shelter. And above all the best curd cheese, apple and poppy seed strudel in the Alps!

    Since 2015 you can again relax on the grass in the beautiful park at the edge of the old town. Ideal for a picnic at the weekend. Or you can talk shop over a game of chess - the big wooden figures stand waiting in front of the pavilion!

    Lanser Lake

    When it's warm and half of Innsbruck escapes to the quarry pond, we head off for the Lanser Lake! It is the alternative to the bathing mainstream, easy to reach on tram 6 and, because it is a moor lake, a bit more natural than its popular brother. Perfect for a quick cooling off in summer!

Activities for the whole family around Vienna

At some point you will have had enough culture and want to get out of the city - experience something completely different for a change. Nothing is easier than that: the nearby Wachau (the most picturesque stretch of the Danube Valley), the Danube Island with its cycle paths and the huge, modern thermal baths in Oberlaa are easily accessible destinations for a day trip. And if you want to look deeply into the Viennese soul, then visit the Central Cemetery.
