Innsbruck holidays are all about gilded Hapsburg palaces, Tyrolean cuisine and the bar-dotted Viaduktbgen. Take the funicular to Hafelekar for Alpine-style Innsbruck holidays spent skiing or trekking. Or extend your Innsbruck holidays and visit nearby towns like medieval Hall and crystalline Wattens.
The Hofburg's rococo stateliness, the Renaissance Golden Roof and Alpine views on every corner will captivate on your first holiday. But Innsbruck has more to offer. Plan holidays discovering Innsbrucks Schloss Ambras with its Old Master oils and frescoed banquet halls. Get a lingering taste of Innsbruck holidays in Old Town speciality shops selling Alpine goodies.
Tuck into hearty Tyrolean fare in Innsbruck. Spend holidays in the Old Town's wood-panelled taverns eating Grstl (potatoes and bacon topped with a fried egg) and flaky apple strudel. Inexpensive curry houses and delis are scattered around Universittsstrasse. For a trendier feel on holidays in Innsbruck, try the glass-fronted Rathaus Galerien mall's minimalist Asian and creative Austrian restaurants.
Wander the Inn River's banks for sunset snapshots of the Alps on holidays in Innsbruck. Snug brewpubs, people-watching cafs and ber-cool lounges punctuate Innsbruck Old Town, particularly along Marien-Theresien-Strasse, Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse and Badegasse. DJs crank up the party in the upbeat bars and clubs of the Viaduktbgen in north-eastern Innsbruck. Summer holidays are best spent sipping cocktails under Innsbruck Hofgarten's chestnut trees.
Go east on your Innsbruck holiday to medieval Hall, where cobbled alleys hide step-gabled townhouses built high on the riches of salt and silver. Alexander McQueen and Tord Boontje's crystal tree and Andr Heller's glittering crystal dome dazzle at Swarovski's fantastical Crystal Worlds in nearby Wattens. Glide 25km east of Innsbruck for holidays spent cross-country skiing on Seefeld's championship trails.
