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.

    "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 "

    Only one negative | Vincent r. | 2015/01/20
    "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. "
