How it works


Contact & Getting there

We take you to the top

Situated a stone's throw from the Tyrolean capital Innsbruck, the Patscherkofel attracts summer and winter sports buffs from around the world. However, the erstwhile Olympic skiing venue not only inspires top sporting performances.

COWO Tirol: quality of work and life, with the infrastructure associated with large cities – yet in a breathtaking alpine scenery, and with a unique view.

COWO Tirol

Until 7 April 2017, the COWO Tirol opened its doors to start-ups and coworkers, innovators, free-lancers, and established enterprises.

15 coworking stations high above the roofs of Innsbruck offering state-of-the-art infrastructure, individualized space for puzzling and developing, communal space for coworking, networking and exchanging ideas, room for workshops and corporate events.

Learn & have fun

Let some air in and escape the hectic life at COWO Tirol, so as to bring order into your thoughts and develop new ideas, be it in a team or on your own. And after hours hop on the mountain bike, take the snowboard or the cable car and head downhill to Innsbruck.
