Innsbruck, and Vienna, were the major 'houses' of the Hapsburg dynasty, the 500 year old Austro-Hungarian empire which ended abruptly with the carnage and carve-up of WW1. With the snowcapped, cloud-wreathed Tyrol lowering above it and split by the milky snowmelt of the river Inn (of course), Innsbruck is still replete with the grandly ostentatious architecture of empire, all pale...

The historic old city centre of Innsbruck is really worthwhile visiting. It is full of nice old building and a dream for architecture lovers. You can get a good overview on top of the old city tower, or stroll around the many small alleys and get a bite to eat or shop for souvenirs. This is a great location for... More

This palace doesn't give you much of a sense of how life was lived by the Hapsburgs here. It is more of a museum, and we are simply not museum people. If it had showed more of the Hapsburg's furnishings and described how they lived, it would have been more interesting. Pretty morbid exhibit about death going on while we... More

The Innsbruck Alstadt is a charming town-centre, with all major sights easily accessible on foot. Its easily possible to experience Innsbruck’s allure and history even strolling through the little lanes admiring the many historical sights (Goldenes Dahl, Helbling House, Hofburg … ) from outside as you pass by or strolling down the beautiful Mariathereisentstrasse with vividly coloured buildings on either...

The old city of Innsbruck is mostly well preserved and has spectacular buildings in a variety of styles. The "Laubengaenge", walkways within the buildings at street level, lead you past wonderful shops that, due to their location, do not intrude into the overall picture of the old city. Look out for concert offerings, i.e. we attended a concert by the... More

The Altstadt of Innsbruck is a delightful area to visit with its many buildings that date back to centuries long gone. There is a variety of architectural styles to be seen, it's not a huge area to cover and is quite flat so walking is not a problem. There are many covered walkways on which to keep dry during wet...

I took a day trip here by train from Munich. The first stop was the amazing Hofkirche with its monument to Maximilian and the statues of Hapsburg ancestors real and imagined. The inner city has many beautiful buildings from the centuries past including the famous golden roof building. The cathedral is worth a look. Interesting are the monuments to two... More

Plenty of historical buildings (old houses and mansions, cathedral and churches, imperial palace, pretty old lanes) and plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars. Inn river and Alps make a beautiful background.
