A small city, bursting with history and on the doorstep of the snow-capped alps. You’ll be greeted with a variety of things to do in Innsbruck as urban city life meets the great outdoors.
Winter sports are a huge part of everyday life in Innsbruck – it takes just twenty minutes to get from the city to the mountain. Take in the panoramic views from the ultra-modern Hungerburg funicular railway or the Bergisel ski jump. Beyond the winter alpine adventures you’ll find a city that is rich in tradition and the splendour of a previous time. Embrace the unique culture and lifestyle as the medieval old town meets pulsating pubs and adrenalin-fuelled adventures.
The city offers an abundance of shopping options. Ranging from Kaufhaus Tyrol, a shoppers paradise on six levels that boasts stunning architecture to Spezialitaten aus der Stiftsgasse, an Aladdin’s cave of homemade goodies. Tiroler Heimatwerk is great for traditional gifts while Swarovski’s flagship store is crammed with sparkling crystal trinkets, ornaments and jewellery.
Innsbruck is brimming with architectural gems that include imperial monuments and contemporary design. Schloss Ambras is a ‘must see’ attraction which was transformed from a fortress into a palace. See the empty sarcophagus of Emperor Maximilian I at Hofkirche or learn about Tirol’s turbulent history at Tirol Panorama.
Modern art has revived 200-year-old Café Munding – enjoy delicious cakes, home-roasted coffee and preserves made from local produce. Papa Joe’s will entice you with the spirit of Mexico, whilst elegant Lichtblick boasts panoramic views over Innsbruck. Stop at Italian deli Panino & Co where you can grab a Panini and espresso to go.
Enjoy floor to ceiling views of the city at Bar 360 – it’s magical in Winter when the mountains glisten with snow. Or stop at Hofgarten Café, a trendy café-come-bar where you can sip cocktails beneath the stars. Krahvogel is an industrial-style pub with live bands, while Theresienbrau is a lively microbrewery with an impressive beer garden.
Innsbruck has an array of outdoor adventures sitting right on its doorstep. A 20-minute journey can transport you from the centre of the city to the heart of the nearby mountains. Whoosh down Nordpark’s ski slopes or pick up supersonic speeds on Igls’ bobsled run in winter. And enjoy hiking, cycling, rafting and mountain biking in summer.
