Igls Things to Do

  • Kurpark

    The Kurpark is a pleasant and fairly large park on a hill behind Igls village centre and near the start of the cable car Patscherkofelbahn. There's a few interesting modern sculptures dotted about the place and the park also has red squirrels which is interesting for those of us from areas where they are now gone. It's a great place to have a slow...

  • St Martin Pfarrkirche in Vill

    In the nearby village of Vill is another lovely little church typical of the area. It's the church of St Martin and again it's spire is one of the most useful landmarks whilst walking in the countryside nearby. The churchyard is well maintained and the interior beautiful, although for most of the day you can only see it through a locked gate.

  • Inside Igls Parish Church

    The Interior of the Parish Church of Igls is a beauty to behold. This little rural church is a real gem with some really lovely wall paintings and ornamentation. I think the small scale of the place allows it too remain tasteful when much bigger churches decorated in this style often (in my opinion) end up looking tacky and glitzy. You can see this...

  • Igls Parish Church

    The Parish church of Igls is typical of many that we saw in the area in terms of it's outward appearance, the baroque style and yellow and white colour scheme makes it all feel very Tyrolean. The church bells ring throughout the day and add to the atmosphere in the village, whilst the church tower acts as a useful landmark to help you find your way...

Igls Transportation

  • Bus Route J

    Bus route J is the quickest way to travel between Igls and the city centre of Innsbruck. It's not such a picturesque journey as the tram but it does go all the way into the city centre and it goes every 15 minutes during the day.

    Now we've all seen vending machines in many places, usually selling junk food and fizzy drinks, but I'd never before seen them selling fresh local produce (mainly strawberries and eggs on this day) from local farmers.That's what you'll find in the village of Vill just outside Igls at the side of the main road.What an excellent idea! I don't know...

Igls Sports & Outdoors

  • Walking routes - Viller Moor

    The walking/hiking possibilities in this area are almost endless and suit a wide range of abilities/levels of fitness. There are a number of well (reasonably to excellently) sign posted recommended routes of differing lengths. The signs also tell you how hard the walk is as they are colour coded - blue for easy, red for medium, black for difficult....

  • Walking Routes - Turmbichl

    This walk is easier and quicker than the Viller Moor route. it visits the village of Vill to the north west of Igls (starting from the centre of Igls) and the lovely alpine meadows around the villages. The start of the walk also takes you down some of the quiet residential streets of Igls which I enjoyed as a chance to be nosy and look at peoples'...
