Alpine meets urban in the capital of Austria’s mountainous Tyrol region. This photogenic stunner, hemmed in by the Austrian Alps, combines Baroque and contemporary architecture alongside a bustling atmosphere.
FUN FACT: Innsbruck sits on the Inn river and the name originates from the German word brücke, meaning bridge, translating as the bridge over the Inn.
See the city’s most famous landmark, shimmering in the sun. The 15th century golden roof and ornate façade was constructed to celebrate the second marriage of Emperor Maximilian I.
The Golden Roof
Seen from every corner of the city, the Bergisel Ski Jump was designed by award-winning architect Zaha Hadid. Ride the funicular to the top to admire the beautiful views and grab a bite to eat at the rooftop café.
Swarovski headquarters and their popular Crystal World are located just outside Innsbruck. Be dazzled by the gardens, fountains, contemporary art, and of course, lots of sparkly crystals.
A hotspot for history and culture lovers – spend your time weaving through the historic centre. Impressive buildings and lavish architecture line the pedestrianised cobblestoned streets.
Innsbruck Old Town
There are fantastic views from the restaurant and bar on the 12th floor. Enjoy a drink on the rooftop terrace and admire the abundance of church towers across the city’s skyline.
Feel like a local in this vaulted restaurant and large beer garden. A favourite of former emperors and dukes, it serves beers and hearty fare of pork roast with lashings of beer sauce, dumplings and sauerkraut.
Wander along this elegant granite-paved boulevard, admiring the 17th century architecture. In the heart of the city, you’ll find boutiques, street-side cafés and the towering St Anne’s Column.
