Axamer Lizum, Alps, Austria

Axamer Lizum is a picturesque destination that beckons both nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. Renowned for its fantastic skiing and snowboarding offerings, this alpine retreat presents a canvas of fine slopes and breathtaking views.

On the edge of the Stubai Alps in Austria, is an excellent alternative for someone staying in Innsbruck (post here) as it is just a quick drive (19km) and has some good ski runs. 

While Axamer Lizum may lack the glitz and glamor of some upscale ski destinations, it compensates with an authentic and welcoming atmosphere. The local charm extends to cozy mountain huts and lodges, where you can savor traditional Austrian cuisine and warm up by crackling fireplaces.

The Stubai Alps are part of the Austrian Central Alps and extend from North Tyrolean territory to the South Tyrol/Italy.

The Axamer Lizum has around 40 km of slopes with 10 cable cars and lifts, situated between the elevations of 1.580 and 2.340m.

At the top of the mountain, there is the “Hoadl-House” restaurant with the largest covered sun terrace in Austria and with a spectacular panoramic view of the entire Inn valley. Just breathtaking!

How to get there?

The nearest airport is Innsbruck Airport, also known locally as Kranebitten Airport. You can check and buy your flight ticket here.
There is no train to the resort and if you don’t want to drive, there is a free shuttle bus from Innsbruck. Just ask at the hotel reception and they will help you with all the information about it.

We rented a car and if that is the case for you, I suggest you have a look at Discover Cars. They offer you a platform to compare rental options from various providers and choose a vehicle that fits your preferences. They are very reliable and an excellent price. You can click here and book your car.


– they have on-site ski school and equipment rental.
– there is a snow-park for freestylers
– there is tobogganing for those who like it (I love it!)
