There must be space for everything: for living, working and commercial enterprises, but also for the environment and traffic. The focus is not only on what is important today, but also on what might be needed in the future.

The overriding goal is to maintain and further develop Innsbruck as a livable city.

What is the ÖROKO 2.0?

The ÖROKO is a strategic planning instrument that defines the goals for the spatial development of the city of Innsbruck for the next ten years. On the one hand, concrete measures and development areas for different uses are identified. On the other hand, however, long-term room for maneuver and development potential are kept open. This is to ensure that we have space in our limited settlement area today and also in the future for what we need in daily life as a growing provincial capital: Housing, jobs, kindergartens, schools, parks and sports facilities, cultural and recreational facilities, traffic routes, open spaces and more.

According to the Tyrolean Spatial Planning Act (TROG), every Tyrolean municipality is obliged to draw up an ÖROKO. This must be adopted as an ordinance by the respective municipal council. The objectives and targets of the Spatial Planning Act determine the contents and scope of the ÖROKO.

As a superordinate planning instrument, the ÖROKO provides the municipality, i.e. the city itself, with the framework for the subsequent zoning and development plans. However, no one, including landowners and developers, has an automatic right to change the zoning or development plans. As before, this decision is dependent on further technical reviews, concretizations and assessments.

Before and during the multi-year process of updating the ÖROKO, numerous basic analyses, studies and cooperative planning procedures were carried out by the Innsbruck City Planning Department for individual spatial planning topics as well as concrete development areas. In the future, ongoing analyses will continue to be prepared, which, in addition to the evaluation of the ÖROKO 2.0, will also serve to address specific topics in greater depth. More information can be found under Projects & Urban Development.

Where can I get an overview of the ÖROKO?

A good overview and introduction to the ÖROKO is provided by the magazine "Perspektive Stadtraum". Here, the contents of the ÖROKO 2.0, the future challenges and opportunities for the joint design of a livable Innsbruck are presented clearly and briefly. The Service Unit Spatial planning and urban development invites you to browse through the magazine, to discuss it with others and to get inspiration for your own project ideas. Because the implementation of ÖROKO 2.0 needs everyone.

The ÖROKO 2.0 consists of:

  • Regulation text including annexes
  • Ordinance plan
  • various reports and bases explaining the ÖROKO


  • The "gray plan" corresponds to the ordinance plan in terms of content and differs only in terms of presentation (in accordance with Annex 3 to the 2016 Ordinance on Planning Principles and Planning Symbols)
  • The subordinate ordinance plans reflect the current status at the time of preparation of the ÖROKO 2.0 and, in contrast to the specifications in the ordinance plan, do not depict a planning horizon.
