The capital of Austria’s western state of Tyrol, Innsbruck offers a unique mix of alpine experiences where a dynamic city sits in a romantic and natural setting with picturesque mountaineering villages on the doorstep and where visitors can quickly swap car horns for cow bell chimes.
As you would expect, ski buses are on hand to get visitors to and from the slopes, while public transport in Innsbruck is efficient and easy to understand with buses available at day and night. Cycling is also a good option as the city boasts a number of bike paths to help you connect with various parts of the city.

A jewel of a hotel, once called “…the finest hotel in Innsbruck” by King Ludwig II, the Grand Hotel Europa is a historic five-star residence dating back more than 140 years.

The city is not what i expected (quite city in mountains) It is a little bit busy (august) not too much to see, BUT there is Nordkette cable car to Hafelekar (from center directly in mountains, with many stops, at the last there is the best mountains view)
Lovely Austrian city at the heart of the alps. Perfect for hikes and nature during the summer and some intense skiing in the winter. The town itself is very walkable, with lots of cute small streets in the old town - food selection is mostly Bavarian inspired cuisine but good restaurants overall. Great for a 2-3 day trip.
Innsbruck is basically lovely year round. There is plenty to do in the city and it also makes for a very convenient home back for day trips throughout the region.
In any season, Innsbruck is simply gorgeous. In winter, it's a skiing paradise with the longest ski runs I've ever experienced in my life. In summer, it's the deepest green I've ever seen made all the more remarkable by the stunning, snow-covered alps in the background. Innsbruck will have you spinning in the hills singing the 'Sound of Music' guaranteed.
