A unique view across Innsbruck
Already since 1927, the Bergisel has been professionally used as a ski jump. The new face of the ski jump was designed by the London-based architect Zaha Hadid. Since its completion in 2003, the jump is yet another architectural highlight of the city.
The Bergiselschanze has its high time with the Vierschanzentournee (“Four Ski Jumps Tournament) at the beginning of January every year. Entire armies of fans and winter sports aficionados crowd the jump platform in Tyrol during that period. During the rest of the year, things are rather quiet. Then the panorama café is the meeting place for epicureans and Innsbruck insiders.
