2 building(s) found:


Römerstrasse 81, 6080 Igls, A
Architecture: Innauer Matt Architekten, ao-architekten (2016-2018) Builder-owner: Stadt Innsbruck Accessibility: Bus line J Tip: Enjoy the view on a hike around the Patscherkofel Mountain (evening trips also on Thursdays in summer).

While the Nordkettenbahn cable railway (architecture: Franz Baumann), built around the same time, was sensitively adapted for a new cable car technology, this apparently proved not to be economically justifiable for the Patscherkofelbahn (architecture: Hans Fessler), which opened in 1928. A three-station monocable gondola lift, characterized by a very strict and purist approach focusing on function, arose in place of the old aerial tramway.

Congresspark Igls

Eugenpromenade 2, 6080 Igls, A
Architecture: Albert Weber, Kurt Rumplmayr (2006-2007) Builder-owner: Congress und Messe Innsbruck Open to the public: The "TransBaRent” café is open to the public daily from 1 to 8 p.m (in summer) and from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. (in winter) Accessibility: In easy walking distance from 2 stops of bus J in Igls.

The "village” of Igls, at the foothills of the Patscherkofel, is one of the inhabitants’ favorite leisure areas, and shortly will be declared air health resort. Right in the center of the Kurpark there is the congress centre run (as well as its much bigger "cousin” in Innsbruck) by the Innsbruck Congress and Fair Corporation. With the concept of a garden pavilion in mind, the two architects, rather than landing a solid building smack in the middle of the park, merely designed a transparent energy-saving jacket under a rounded overlapping roof. Inside your will find whatever is necessary for smaller assemblies or seminars, plus a public café where you can also sit outside.
