In Innsbruck, out in the country means up in the Tyrolean mountains. Go on foot or by bike into the middle of the countryside.
The snow covered peaks are seemingly within touching distance. Innsbruck is the only city with a direct link to a ski resort.
Virtually no other city in Austria has so many places of interest to offer in such a small area!A walk through the old town is like taking a step back in time.
Everyone wants to see it: The golden roof has become the landmark of the old town. 2657 fire-gilded copper shingles decorate the roof in the centre of the city
They stand their eerily in black. In the imperial court church in Innsbruck 28 “Schwarze Mander” keep watch over the tomb of King Maximillian
The Hofburg was the Hapsburg’s residence and government building for over 500 years. King Maximillian I had the building turned into a magnificent palace.
The Tyrolean museum is dedicated to the region: Findings from Roman times along with works of art and pieces of art from modern times make the Ferdinandeum the “memory of Tyrol”.
Out in the open the marmots and eagles are too far away to get a good look at them. In the Alpenzoo you can get to know the flora and fauna.
Those that have stood at the top of the jump can feel it: The ski jumpers fly towards the city. This architectural landmark is definitely worth a visit.
The castle was once the residence of Archduke Ferdinand II – after the death of his wife it became the centre of his collections and therefore the world’s first museum.
