      Your Summer Holiday in Innsbruck

      Find your Austrian 'Lebensgefühl' by mixing a city break with an Alpine holiday - welcome to Innsbruck.

    Imperial Elegance & Natural Beauty

    When you first arrive in Innsbruck, you might wonder why you didn’t visit sooner. After all, this city comes with a unique combination: You can stroll its streets full of imperial elegance and beautiful Baroque and Gothic architecture in the Old Town, and then take a cable car from the centre and be at 2,000 m in just 20 minutes. Get everything the country offers in one day - that's what living and breathing Innsbruck is all about!

    Let a local show you Innsbruck's foodie scene, where you can try all those regional specialties. Or meet up with a guide from the region to explore the hidden corners by foot or by bike - they know all kinds of exciting stories.

    Even at first sight, this city and its setting amidst majestic peaks is breathtaking. But, it’s never just about the scenery: Innsbruck’s warm, friendly atmosphere – perhaps owing to its Southern influence – and relaxing nature experiences will make you feel at home in no time.
