In the heart of Tirol, only two hours away from Salzburg and Munich, Innsbruck’s Old Town is a small area of sturdy medieval houses, many painted in lively pastel colors and supported by sloping buttresses. As you stroll along the main street of the Old Town Innsbruck, you’ll feel as if you had taken a trip back in time to an era of knights and medieval merchants. Stop by the Folk Art Museum, the Imperial Palace, and the Imperial Chapel, all of which give great insight into Innsbruck’s past.
Busy street cafes afford great views of Innsbruck’s landmark, the Golden Roof, and its 2,738 gold-plated copper tiles. Constructed for Emperor Maximilian I. in the early 15th century, it served as a royal box where he could sit in luxury and enjoy tournaments in the square below. Today, Maximilian would see a busy shopping street with many exquisite boutiques, crafts-shops and restaurants.
