Innsbruck, Austria

Innsbruck is the capital of the federal state Tyrol and is the biggest city in the western part of Austria. It is a great city to fly into for a ski holiday due to the sheer choice of ski resorts that you have on your doorstep but what of Innsbruck itself?

What's in Innsbruck?

Innsbruck is a great city to visit for sports enthusiasts and also those who love their culture. One of the best things to do here is to visit the Bergisel ski jump, venue of the Olympic ski jumping competitions in 1964 and 1976. It now plays host to the Four Hills Tournament.

Innsbrucks most popular tourist attraction is the Golden Roof, built by Archduke Friedrich 1V in the early 15th century. It is essentially a three storey balcony on a house in Innsbrucks old town. The Imperial Palace is also worth a visit, built by Archduke Siegmund around 1460. Innsbruck is a beautiful city to wander around with its cobblestone lanes, shops and cafes.

Top tip for visiting Innsbruck, purchase the Innsbruck Card which enables you to enter Innsbrucks sites as well as use the public transport system. It works out better value than paying individually for all the things you want to see and do.

The Tyrol region shares borders with both Switzerland and Germany so many ski resorts in both these countries are just half an hour transfer away. Hiring a car and driving is relatively straightforward but as so many resorts are close, unless you need a car in resort, it may be more cost effective to use  a private transfer service.
