When it comes to experiencing the Alps, there are a number of ways to go about it – you could get up high on a strenuous mountain hike, or don a pair of skis and swish through the jagged, snowy landscapes at speed. For something infinitely more relaxed, though, we recommend a visit to Innsbruck and the Stubai Valley. Both provide remarkably easy access to the high mountains, as well as plentiful opportunities to enjoy undemanding walks amid spectacular alpine scenery.

Even putting its glorious mountain backdrop to one side for the moment, Innsbruck is a fascinating city to explore. Spend your full day delving into its rich imperial past – embodied by such impressive monuments as the Goldenes Dachl and Hofburg Palace – and enjoying the typically excellent Austrian hospitality of your family-run hotel. A warm welcome also awaits at your next destination, which lies just a short distance to the south of Innsbruck. Unique among our mountain walking bases, the Stubai Valley is accessible to even the most occasional of walkers, and everything else here – from the included travel pass to the panoramic viewing platforms and welcoming Hütten (mountain inns) that appear exactly when you require sustenance – seems to have been designed to make life as easy, and as pleasurable, as can be.
