Ski / Sports
This original vintage travel poster promotes winter sports and the cable car from Innsbruck to the Seegrube station.
The three stations of the Seegrube and Hafelekar Cable Railways were built in 1927/1928 and were planned by architect Franz Baumann in the “Tiroler Moderne” style. The buildings are listed as protected monuments and have remained intact to this day.
The Tyrol’s history of skiing dates back to the start of the 20th century when small groups of ski tourers (or ski hikers) began to explore the high alpine terrain. Once the Seegrube Cable Railway was completed, there was no stopping Innsbruck’s local skiers and their enthusiasm peaked when a ski jump was built at the Seegrube in 1937.
In great condition. Mounted on linen.
