Innsbruck: An Apres Ski Guide from Monarch

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 09/24/12 -- The temperatures are dropping, the nights are drawing in and the kids are back at school. It can only mean one thing: it's almost time for ski season! Brand new Monarch ski routes for winter 2012/13 make travelling to Grenoble and some of the best winter ski resorts across Europe more affordable than ever. So we've decided to take a look at the best apres ski on offer at Innsbruck in Austria, a resort highly recommended by Chemmy Alcott, the number one British woman skier and brand ambassador for Monarch, who claimed it was the perfect destination for families of skiers and non-skiers-or skiers more interested in apres ski-due to the rich cultural heritage the city has to offer.

Host to two Winter Olympic Games, Innsbruck's proximity to both the Stubai and Hinterlux glaciers makes it a Mecca for skiers and snowboarders. Yet Innsbruck is much more than just a ski resort and is a fantastic choice for families and anyone new to winter sports. The 800-year-old city has a rich cultural heritage that is packed with apres ski activities to enjoy after an exhilarating day in the snow.

When the sun sets, Innsbruck's town centre is lit up by a number of friendly restaurants, offering both local Austrian delicacies and world-class cuisine. Take a short trip to the nearby village of Lans to sample delicious traditional Sauerbraten, which is made from lamb intestines, minced veal and sauerkraut. Vegetarians can head into Innsbruck's Old Town to find The Garden, a dining favourite of the locals. Or if you're just looking for a quick bite on the go, there are a number of traditional wurst-stands offering a delicious range of German hot dogs.

Innsbruck is home to a number of cosmopolitan bars and nightclubs, where drinks and entrance fees are much more reasonable than in some of the more expensive resorts in France and Switzerland. Along the main market street you'll find the popular Innsbruck Inn, whilst the rooftop bar Segafredo Sky is the perfect spot to enjoy a romantic drink whilst admiring views of the Hafelekar mountain.

Drinking is not allowed on the streets of Innsbruck, which helps this historic town to retain its family friendly atmosphere. A visit to the 500-year old Goldenes Dachl is a must-see on a holiday to Innsbruck, which was built for the Emperor Maximilian and includes a royal balcony to watch traditional jousting in the Old Town's main square. The Sightseer bus is a great way for all the family to see the town's wealth of cultural sights, which are set against the spectacular Nordkette mountain ridge.

Flights to Innsbruck from Monarch are available today from just GBP 34. Find out more about Monarch's range of winter ski breaks by visiting www.monarch.co.uk.
