Innsbruck city breaks race you to the cultured capital of the Tyrolean Alps, home to elegant boutiques and world-class art collections. Tailor a city break in Innsbruck to suit you - whether you want to ski on Hafelekar's slopes, breeze through the Hofburg's royal apartments, or eat crumbly apple strudel in the Old Town's pavement cafs.
Toast the first evening of your Innsbruck city break with sundown cocktails on a terrace overlooking the Inn River and Alps. Make yourself cosy in Innsbruck Old Town's wood-panelled taverns, serving Austrian classics like Tafelspitz (braised beef with horseradish). Or for something on the run opt for snack meals around the Hauptbahnhof train station and along Kaiserjgerstrasse. Dine outside in the Hofgarten's beer garden on summer city breaks to Innsbruck.
Stay in the Old Town on Innsbruck city breaks to be close to the trophy sights. Choose between romantic weekend breaks in Innsbruck's boutique retreats and gothic flair in vaulted hotels where Mozart once slept. For leafy views near the Alpengarten and Hafelekar's slopes, make for Innsbruck's well-to-do St Nikolaus district. On a winter city break to Innsbruck head to slope-side Igls, 6km south of Innsbruck, for skiing and toasty evenings by the fire in log chalets.
The shimmering Golden Roof and the chandelier-lit grandeur of the Hofburg (Imperial Palace) are must-sees on short breaks to Innsbruck. Stay longer to see traditional crafts in the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum, Alpine views from the Bergisel ski jump, and Velzquez portraits in the Hapsburg Gallery at hilltop Schloss Ambras. Active types book city breaks in Innsbruck to pound the pistes or hike trails around Hafelekar peak.
