Patscherkofel Cable Car Lower/Valley Station
3.18km from Europa Bridge
This cable car leads from the village of Igls up onto the Patscherkofel mountain to the south of Innsbruck, a popular destination for hikers, mountainbikers and those who simply want to enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding landscape. It was built in 1928 as an aerial tramway and replaced in 2017 by a monocable gondola with a slightly different route.

A beautiful lake, which has its source in the Blauer See and flows through the Viggartal in the Tux Alps in a north-southwesterly direction and flows into the Sill below Ellbogen . The stream has a length of 10 kilometers. The raging brook retains water quality class I throughout its course and is particularly dangerous during floods and heavy rain. However, because surrounding communities are a little further from the body of water, there is less risk to housing developments.
4.33km from Europa Bridge
The Serlesbahnen Mieders Skiing Area is above all ideal for beginners and families, as it is not too large - with 6 km of slopes - and thus very manageable. Those who love ski tours, however, will trawl the off-slope territory around Mt. Serles, one of the most popular recreation areas in the surroundings of Innsbruck.
4.67km from Europa Bridge
A beautiful lake located in Lans in the district of Innsbruck Land and is the largest lake in the city area. It is fed by ground water as well as the neighbouring water lily lake, the Lanser Moor. It is a popular destination for those who love swimming and spashing around. It is also used for ice-skating during the winter.
5.16km from Europa Bridge
The Bergisel Ski Jump on famous Mt. Isel is an architectural highlight and a tourist attraction in the Alpine City. The ski jump stands proudly above the Olympic city of Innsbruck on the historic Bergisel. This hill has always been a place of great importance for Tyrol and especially for Innsbruck. The sports facility has twice been honoured with the task of hosting Olympic events: the Olympic flame burned on the Bergisel at the Olympic Games in 1964 and 1976.
5.33km from Europa Bridge
Patscherkofel is Innsbrucks Ski Paradise in the south: easy to recognise from its rounded shape and the prominent radio mast on its peak. During both the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics, the mountain was the venue for the men's downhill race, along with the bobsleigh and luge competitions in neighboring Igls. The other five alpine skiing events were held at Axamer Lizum.
