Visiting Innsbruck:      

Innsbruck is the capital city of Tyrol and the fifth-largest city in Austria. It is located in the Inn valley right next to the Brenner-Pass to Italy. From the town centre, looking at the north it is possible to admire the so-called North Chain in the Karwendel Alps, as well as the Patscherkofel and Serles when looking to the south. Innsbruck is an internationally renowned winter sports centre. The city is full of unique sightseeings, such as the “Goldene Dachl”, the Ambrass Castle, the old town center and the dome. It is really one of a kind.

Use this opportunity and get to know Innsbruck from its best side during a guided city tour and a subsequent ride with the Nordkettenbahn to the summit: The Hafelekar. On the way back you can enjoy the beautiful view of Innsbruck from the Seegrube with a coffee and a piece of cake.

Adler Lacke:  

“Paint runs through our veins!”    

This philosophy has made Adler the competence leader in wood preservation and wood paints. Because those who are enthusiastic about their work don’t do things by halves.

Innovation and research play a central role for them: More than two-thirds of the approximately 10,000 articles are manufactured on a water dilutable basis. In this way, they avoid the use of solvents and make an important contribution to environmental and climate protection.

Use this opportunity to learn how Adler Lacke made it this far with their work and take part in the factory tour.
