A very easy old city to walk through without the hustle of other mid-size tourist areas. Very nice restaurants and shopping opportunities

If you are visiting Innsbruck at least for the first time, walking through the Old Town is a must do. Yes it can get crowded and is touristy, but it still has a great old world feel, is very clean, and there are several sights to see.

Enjoy walking and do sight seeing. Take a ride with the Hungerburgbahn and visit the Zoo, if you have time.

On our trip to Innsbruck, we exited the motorway for the children to use the services and parked next to a traffic van (plates : W34905R). Out comes a very grumpy individual, inspects our car which had been rented in Germany and demands a fine of 120 euros. He didn't greet us, or introduced himself. We had to ask repeatedly... More

Nice place to walkabout and take in the sights. Plenty of shopping around for the touristy stuff, eats and other regular things too. We visited during the sale season and had a good time shopping.

Beautiful buildings and churches, towers etc but lots of people crowding to photograph everything and typical tourist-trap shops & restaurants. Well worth seeing

We ate at the best western hotel in the altstadt, very good food and service. Although it was busier than the rest of Innsbruck it was much prettier and atmospheric.

Lovely feel to this old town area of Innsbruck. Narrow, cobbled streets and tiny shops and weinstubes abound. During the day it's packed with tourists but come back after 7pm, grab a seat at a outdoor table at a restaurant or weinstube and relax and enjoy the view of the alps surrounding the old buildings. Only negative is the plethora... More

There is a building in this old town, that has a roof with gold plated awnings (see attached photo). Apart from that, the whole area is very pleasant for an hour's walk.

I visited Innsbruck some years ago and I was delighted by its atmosphere: it is very nice, tourist friendly and very, very clean. I suggest you to go on the top of the Dome, although this must be paid: it offers a beautiful view of the city and of the golden roof, the main symbol of this city.
