The ski jump on Bergisel in Innsbruck is one of the most impressive modern buildings in Tyrol. Today's ski jump was built in 2001 based on a project by the famous architect Zaha Hadid.
The Bergisel ski jump can be visited independently of ski jumping events. There is an entrance fee. A cable car takes you to the top of the building and a lift takes you up to where the jumpers take off.
There is also a panoramic restaurant at the top of the tower and a panoramic viewing platform one floor above. The view over Innsbruck is unique. In the spring and summer (yes, in the summer) people sometimes practice ski jumping and it's very interesting to watch. Information about this at +43 512 589259.
