      Innsbruck - the Austrian Way

      The best of two worlds: Innsbruck is the place to be for a city break and alpine holiday both in one.

    Imperial Elegance & Natural Beauty

    When you first arrive in Innsbruck, you might wonder why you didn’t visit sooner. After all, this city offers 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 our country offers in one day - that's holidays the Austrian way!

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