For the ALPINE feature go up the Nordkette cable cars – in only 20 minutes from the medieval city centre to 2000m altitude to a sunny terrace and mountain hut restaurant with snow to play with until May and June. On the same mountain there is the Alpine Zoo, Europe’s highest altitude zoo and a fun family attraction with more than 2000 animals of the Alps. The nature park Karwendel, Austria’s biggest nature park is as well on the Nordkette mountain. Or try one of the other 6 cable cars that take you within minutes up to the tranquil nature above Innsbruck.
The biggest URBAN sight we have are definitely the Swarovski Crystal Worlds, just 20 minutes from Innsbruck. They count among Austria’s most visited sights and are well known to the Indian tourists. But how about some new experience, like the Bergisel Olympic Ski Jump Tower. This modern architecture monument, built by star-architect Zaha Hadid, offers great views and a restaurant on top and in summer you can even see ski jumpers train there. Grasp some Olympic spirit from the 3 times host city of the Olympic Winter Games.
The IMPERIAL history of the baroque and renaissance Innsbruck is present all around. The 800-year-old Old Town with its quaint alleys, the Imperial Palace, Imperial Church and gardens invite you to stroll through the medieval court life. Another highlight is the Ambras Castle Innsbruck, residing in the hills 15 min from the centre. A tram will take you through the forests and hills to this truly romantic sight.
