Innsbruck, gem of the Tyrol

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?

About Austria

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.

    Family return trip to Innsbruc | Trevor p. | 2015/01/14
    "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 "

    Relaxing Journey. Great Views. | Michael w. | 2014/10/17
    "This was the connecting train to Innsbruck from Verona after having left Venice. The train was on time and the carriage clean and tidy. The seats easily identifiable and relatively comfortable. Luggage space is at a premium though but we were fortunate enough to get both cases between the seats as we were one of the first ones on the train. Others had to pile them in a open space near the door which restricted the passageway. The on board services were good and we have nothing to really grumble about. It arrived on time too! In all a relaxing journey with some great views. "

    "My booking was for 1st class 2 x Double Sleeper Milan to Innsbruck I received a small sleeper with a bunk bed . I was lead to believe I would have my own WC and Shower this was not so and I was to share with all other passengers This was the first leg of our trip I would not recommend anybody pay the fees for Ist class as the sleeper is so small you cannot even get your suit cases in properly. I there was no dining coach we were forced to sit in our sleeper food or snacks was limited and was expensive and hardly edible. Breakfast was included in the rate which was a croissant and some orange juice. "
