Innsbruck

Past and future meet in the heart of the Alps, where Innsbruck’s world-famous sights, which testify to the Tirol province’s great past, stand alongside post-modern international architecture to create a fascinating blend.

Things to do in Innsbruck

  1. Swarovski Crystal Worlds
  2. Bergisel Ski Jump Tower
  3. Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen
  4. Ambras Castle
  5. Innsbruck's Old Town

The Imperial Palace, Ambras Palace, Ottoburg and the Wilten Basilica all tell of Innsbruck’s eventful past and its great figures including Philippine Welser, the secret wife of Archduke Ferdinand I, Andreas Hofer, the Tirolean freedom fighter, and last but not least Emperor Maximilian I, who built many of the monuments that survive today, e.g. the Golden Roof and his tomb at the Imperial Church.

With Dominique Perrault’s Rathausgalerie and late Zaha Hadid’s Bergisel Ski Jump and Hungerburgbahn, outstanding new landmarks have recently been added to Innsbruck’s modern cityscape. Just image to board the Hungerburgbahn and 20 minutes later you are on top of the Nordkette looking down at the city of Innsbruck.

The diverse attractions of the city – ranging from the famous Dance Summer to the Innsbruck Festival Week – coupled with the beautiful scenery make Innsbruck a destination that offers something for everyone.

Innsbruck is scenically squeezed between two impressive mountain chains and an absolute must on every visit to Innsbruck is a gondola ride up Seegrube (2000m) from where you enjoy spectacular views of the Inn valley and the surrounding mountains.

Innsbruck, host of the Olympic Winter Games in 1964 and 1976, is of course a major winter sports center. Popular activities include skiing, snowboarding, ski mountaineering, snowshoeing, and skating. In the summer the region also boasts a whole host of outdoor sports such as cycling, mountain biking, paragliding, and, of course, hiking and walking in areas of great natural charm such as the Karwendel Alpine Park or Zirbenweg trail on Patscherkofel.
