Innsbruck overview

Surrounded by breathtaking rugged mountain terrain, the historic city of Innsbruck has a picture-postcard quality about it. The beautiful architecture of the medieval old town, with ages-old buildings lining narrow streets, blends seamlessly with the more modern elements of the city, such as hip boutiques and lively beer gardens. In fact, Innsbruck has become renowned in recent years for its vibrant nightlife scene, offering a little something for all tastes, from traditional brew houses to chic wine bars. Nights are certainly never dull here.

Innsbruck has long been synonymous with winter sports and the city has twice been given the honour of hosting the Winter Olympics. As such, the area remains one of the best destinations for those who enjoy partaking in winter activities. In addition to offering world-class skiing facilities, Innsbruck is also popular with hikers and mountaineers. Away from the more strenuous pursuits and back in the city itself, there is a wealth of history and culture to explore, from the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum and Ambras Castle, to the magnificent Imperial Palace. An attraction which gets a little closer to nature is the unique Alpine Zoo, Europe's highest animal park, and home to many rare Alpine species such as the bearded vulture.

Getting around Innsbruck

The city centre, particularly in the old town area, is very compact and so ideal for getting around on foot. There is a special bus service called The Sightseer which connects some of the major attractions in the area, such as the Alpine Zoo. Standard buses and trams link Innsbruck to surrounding villages.

Getting from the Airport to the City
