The alpine city of Innsbruck sits tucked in a valley in the Austrian Alps, with 360 degree views of ‘The land of the mountains’. Innsbruck holds the prestigious claim of capital city of the state of Tyrol (Tirol) in Western Austria, which boasts over 10,000 square miles of gushing rivers, lush meadows and rugged peaks. The city boasts an abundance of quintessential Alpine scenery, with a strong Tyrolean culture to leave you spoilt for choice in choosing between the slopes or stylish city streets and cafes.
The main square of Innsbruck, with boutique shops and little alleyways with cafes and restaurants branching off from all sides. You could easily spend half a day exploring the twisted maze of cobbled streets around the town center.
The place to go for your local alcohol fix, with hundreds of locally sourced and fermented Tyrolean liqueurs to choose from. A perfect gift for those you left at home to drink their sorrows away after you get back and show them the photos…
A must-visit for the classic ‘Innsbruck’ shot, with the Inn River in the foreground and Hafelekar peak in the background. Now just imagine this covered in snow in winter…
Take a ride on the Nordkette cable car up to Seegrube restaurant and lookout for stunning views over the city and for a truly remarkable show by the daring local paragliders.
Yep, there’s even a Hilton Hotel in the Austrian Alps, and boy does it have a good view!
