A Trail Run in Innsbruck for Every Occasion

5 inspiring trail runs around Innsbruck that will have you falling in love with the city known as the Heart of the Alps

Description

Innsbruck, the heart of the Alps, holds a solid reputation when it comes to outdoor sports such as mountain biking, skiing and hiking. However, it also caters perfectly for trail running!

The possibilities here are endless and accomodate the most advanced and technical trail runners to the fresh and enthusiastic beginners.

The steep Nordkette allows you to get really high in a short period of time, directly from the vibrant and bustling city centre. When you’re done visiting the Golden Dachl, romancing beside the Inn with pastel buildings and mountain backdrops, ticked off the Bergisel, which boasts competitions between the world’s best ski jumpers during the winter months, then it’s time to head off the beaten track and cobbled footpaths, up into a trail running paradise, right outside your door.

These five hand-picked trails include a run for every occasion and experience level, from rolling 5 km routes with superb views to extreme exposure and some scrambling high above the city.
