Fitness & Wellness in Stubai

The Stubai Valley is about 15 km away from the Tyrolean state capital of Innsbruck and is best reached via the Brenner motorway. It stretches for over 35 kilometers into the spectacular mountains of the Stubai Alps, boasting 80 glaciers and 109 peaks that soar above 3,000 meters high. The highest and most well-known mountain in a series of impressive giants is the Zuckerhütl at 3,507 meters.

The villages of Stubai lie at an elevation of around 1,000 meters, where the air is wonderfully clear - great for allergy sufferers! Nestled amongst gently sloping meadows you find Fulpmes. The tranquil atmosphere is perfect for guests looking to relax and unwind. Here you find a real closeness to nature, breathtaking panoramas, and numerous recreational opportunities just waiting to be experienced. The Kreuzjochbahn cable car station is located just at the edge of the village and runs up to the skiing and hiking paradise, Schlick 2000. Once at the top, visitors are treated to a unique panorama: the view of the Stubai and Inn Valleys, along with the Kalkkögel range, the North Tyrolean Dolomites, is simply incomparable.

Thanks to the high altitude and superb infrastructure, the region has made a name for itself among Alpine Skiing national teams as the perfect training ground. The "Kingdom of Snow", as the Stubai Glacier is known, offers guaranteed snow from October through June, and is also Austria’s largest glacier ski area. A real highlight, especially during the summer months, is the Alpine Adventure Park with climbing area, bivouac cave, educational Alpine plants nature trail, and arguably the most beautiful panoramic lake in the Alps. In addition, cycling fans can learn all kinds of new skills on a technique-training course at the Bike Academy, from the basics right up to tackling a biking track.
