While you're there
A picture-perfect Austrian city with Alpine appeal, Innsbruck blends lavish baroque palaces and designer boutiques with old-world taverns and glass-fronted bars. Glittering with crystals and shining slopes, it’s steeped in tradition but by no means traditional – as Bögen’s all-night parties confirm.
Located in the western part of Austria, Innsbruck, the capital of the Tyrol region, is a very accessible city with hundreds of shops, restaurants and numerous other year-round attractions. There are many ski areas around the city. Did you know that Innsbruck was twice host of the Winter Olympics in 1964 and 1976, and it also became the first city to host three Winter Olympics when it staged the world’s first Winter Youth Olympics in 2012?
Take an early train from Salzburg to Innsbruck (1h50 trip), a beautiful alpine city with a medieval old town nestled in the mountains of the Nordkette. The Emperor Maximilian I, known as the last true knight, and Holy Roman Emperor gave his special stamp to the city: the Golden Roof, the Imperial Palace and the Hofkirche imperial church which holds his mausoleum, surrounded by 28 bronze giant statues. In the same building you will find a beautiful museum which brings you closer to the Tyrolean culture.
Dedicate the rest of the day to walk around in town, shopping at the Maria Theresien street. At night go to a nice Tyrolean show, with a varied program with folkloric dances and shoe-slapping as well as typical Tyrolean songs and yodelling.
The next day, visit three emblematic places around the historic centre.
Take tram 1 to visit the Bergisel hill where you will find the panorama museum with its giant painting of the Battle of Bergisel. Enjoy the breath-taking views of the city from there.
Continue with the bus J to Igls, a small mountain village (0h15 trip), to take the Patscherkofel cable car included in the Innsbruck Card, to enjoy the magnificent views. In the afternoon take tram 3 to visit the castle of Ambras, which has a unique collection of art.
Taste the specialities of the region, such as Schlutzkrapfen (dumplings stuffed with cheese or spinach), Käsespätzle (pasta tossed with onions and cheese) and Tiroler Gröstl (pan with potatoes, meat and vegetables) in the Tiroler Wirsthaus, one of the typical restaurants.
Trains are a convenient way of reaching many towns and cities throughout Europe. The majority of cities in Europe have a minimum of one train station, while larger, more populated cities have two or more stations. Train stations, in general, are located in the heart of the city. Review the map below to get an idea of where the train station(s) in Innsbruck can be found.

Trains are very comfortable no question about it. But there are very few direct trains from the starting point like Roma Termini or any other station. We traveled to Aosta valley with 3 to 4 changes.For people like us who are touching 60 yrs is bit difficult to change so many stations with luggage . But running time and the comforts are excellent. We will definitely travel again in Europe by Rail Europe. Regards, Joydeep Ghosal/ Devjani Ghosal
- "Great way to travel in Europe" Mew Yong t. 14/10/2015
Comfortable seats, clean toilet and a great way to travel in Europe. Scenic view along the way, which made travelling enjoyable. Information is displayed at strategic spots so you can track your journey. Announcement is made at each station so you wont miss your destination.
- "Comfortable and easy" Zakir h. 16/08/2015
Would like to say it was a very convenient way with hassle free travel.
- "Venice to Innsbruck" Seema b. 04/07/2015
Comfort and value for money was great. Just that the train moved very slowly and stopped around a lot
- "Innsbruck to Salzburg" Seema b. 04/07/2015
Comfortable and as per expectations.
- "Value for money" . 04/06/2015
Travelled first class, comfortable seats ,good air-conditioning . But no space for big suitcases , apart from overhead shelves which was not easy for women . There were no welcoming drinks as on other Italian trains . Overall , am pleased with experience
- "innsbruck to venice" Mark w. 28/05/2015
would travel again
- "Worry re:strike" Sook Yien Lynn l. 10/05/2015
Worried as German train strikes were on. Called the Singapore office and they checked for me, assured me and advised what to do in the event the train was really on strike. Train ride itself was good - punctual, train was clean.
- "Easy and Comfort " . 30/01/2015
It was a very smooth and comfortable ride from Zurich to Salzburg. I truly enjoyed the ride on the train overlooking the views of the alps and fields.
- "Only one negative" Vincent r. 20/01/2015
Entire experience was very good. My only issue was that I didn't have the option to email tickets to the USA or print at home. I was forced to pay 12€ to ship paper tickets to my home. In today's age, this is absurd. Nothing bad to say otherwise.
- "Family return trip to Innsbruc" Trevor p. 14/01/2015
Our family of 4 really enjoyedthe return train trip from Vienna to Innsbruck. The only concern I had was that the seats allocated should have been 4 seats facing one another with the table in between. I also found it difficult to find contact details to make seat allocation changes. The trip itself was great! Thank you Trevor
- "Tight fit" Stacey m. 12/01/2015
Not much legroom in the 2nd class. Otherwise it was fine.
- "CLEAN AND EXPENSIVE" Elissavet s. 04/01/2015
Everything was very good except three things : First the toilet was not so clean and had a bad smell. Second and very important if you wanted to drink some coffee Or water , they where very expensive so I didn't buy anything Due it was very expensive. Third and last , I couldn't charge by mobile telephone due to the voltage of the Train was 230V! Except the above two things all the rest was very good. Thank you

This is a brilliant trip and a wonderful way to arrive in Italy. beautiful scenery and we were lucky in that there had been snow a few days before we departed.
- "trip to Verona" James h. 12/11/2014
This was a very comfortable fast way to get to Innsbruck. The station at Innsbruck is smallish and well signed.
