For fans of ski jumping, local history and good coffee
The Bergisel complex contains not only the famous ski jumping hill but also museums, a café and lots of highlights for nature lovers and those interested in architecture.
Bergisel is a 746m hill to the south of Innsbruck which overlooks the Wilten district of the city and has played an important role in local history. Around 200 years ago brave local men, led by freedom fighter Andreas Hofer, fought there to keep Tyrol independent of foreign rule.
In 1925 a ski jump was built on the terrain where this historic battle took place. This ski jumping hill has hosted the Olympic Games on two occasions (1964 and 1976) and was designed by world-famous architect Zaha Hadid. It welcomes ski jumping competitions throughout the winter, including a stop of the internationally renowned Four Hills Tournament.
