University of Innsbruck

Non-scientific program

The Innsbruck area is a gorgeous natural park, which allows for a variety of activities. In the free time, everyone can choose something to their taste from the excursion to the Swarovski Crystal Worlds, silver mines or extreme sports like rafting or canyoning. On a short walking distance from the meeting venue is the entrance to the cable railways Nordkette, which will take you in less than 30 min to an unforgettable journey to the top of the mountain with the stunning views of the city. Halfway of the railway trip (also accessible by bus), there is the possibility to visit Alpen Zoo with animals typical for the Alpine region. Half a day is booked in the program to enjoy the beauty of Tyrol. The central location of the meeting venue also provides the possibility to explore the old town of Innsbruck with its Imperial Palace and a large variety of churches, museums, shops and restaurants.

For those who are interested, we can assist in purchasing an Innsbruck city cart for 24 hours (https://www.innsbruck.info/en/sightseeing/innsbruck-card/24-hours-in-innsbruck.html), which gives excess to the most famous activities in Innsbruck.

For people who would like to try a favorit Tirolian activity, we will organise an easy hike from Hungerburg station (accessible by foot, bus or cable car) to Arzler Alm, where we could enjoy a drink and a nice view over the city. The hike will take around 1.5 hours with an elevation of 200 m.
