About us

Our climbing centre is owned by the City of Innsbruck but run by Innsbruck’s Alpine Association under the management of Reini Scherer. We want our climbing centre to be a meeting place for recreational climbers and top-class athletes alike. For this reason the Austrian Climbing Association’s National Competence Centre (Bundesleistungszentrum) is integrated into our facility enabling competitions and training camps to take place without interrupting daily climbing centre operations. From beginners to professional climbers, from little tots to senior citizens – we offer a facility to suit everyone’s needs and wishes. We look forward to welcoming you.

Much more than just climbing walls

Innsbruck’s climbing centre is so much more than just an indoor climbing gym. Here you can also climb outdoors and enjoy views of the city and the surrounding mountains – urban meets Alpine!

In addition to climbing you can also make use of our weight training room, browse in our small shop, rent seminar rooms, attend yoga courses, let your kids have fun in our children’s area and enjoy tasty bites to eat in our bistro. 

And, for variety and relaxation, there’s also a spacious skating hall and a chill-out area on the banks of the River Inn. 

Facts & figures on our new climbing centre

Convincing the City of Innsbruck, the State of Tyrol and the Alpine Association to invest in this facility involved ten years of hard work on the part of Reini Scherer. In 2014 all those involved, local politicians and association members, reached an agreement and the all-clear was given for construction to begin on our centre which opened its doors in May 2017. A large thank you goes to all those politicians and representatives from sport clubs and associations who played their part in making this recreational masterpiece possible - a climbing centre that is, and will undoubtedly remain unparalleled for many years to come.
