Overview

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.

    "We traveled by euro rail from Vienna - Salzburg - Innsbruck - Munich - Paris ( TGV ) in the 2nd week of August. Our experience in travelling in Eurorail had been excellent all along. "

  • fine | . | 2013/08/01
    "The trip was fine although the train was very full at the beginning. Later it became more comfortable. Booking the tickets on the net was a little difficult and the English of the site was rather poor. It would help people to find what they need if you asked a native speaker to correct it. Also, it'd be easier and cheaper if the tickets were sent electronically instead of having to pay for the expensive postage. But the service was very good and I appreciated that someone came up to chat on the net when I was having difficulties in booking. Thank you, Csilla Bertha "

    Coachette Train Ride | Lyndee a. | 2013/07/31
    "We had the two middle bunk beds in the coachette. Bed was fairly comfortable. Very convenient to be able to sleep in a bed for the 9 hour overnight train ride. Only complaints are that there is very little room for luggage, and since we boarded the train at 11:00pm, two of the people were already sleeping so we couldn't turn on the lights and we had to put our luggage in the middle of the floor.

    Very reliable Service |  . | 2013/05/02
    "The train service was very good, and the staff at the stations were very helpful given I did not speak Italian/German. But there are not any baggage carts/trolleys at Italian Trains stations, luckily the train transfer was just on the other side of the platform. There were carts at the Austriin stations "
