I had a very short time in Innsbruck but I experienced so much history in the old town. The busy (pedestrian only) streets where easy to navigate but best of all, all attractions and houses had plaques to explain their significance. Because of this I feel that I saw and learned a lot more about Innsbruck than I had expected.... More

The setting is wonderful - beautiful old buildings with snow-coveted mountains as a backdrop. Try to overlook the numerous souvenir shops and focus on the charm of the architecture, hanging signs advertising medieval shops, cobblestone streets and alleys, statues, fountains and churches. The old town area is very walkable, as it is fairly flat and condensed.

Lovely shops (both quaint and more up-to-date) can be found in the alleyways in the Old Town around the Golden Roof. Many are under arcades so there's no problem if (when) it rains.

We passed through Innsbruck on our travels and found it to be time well spent. This attractive old town boasts a whole lot. Historical buildings, trendy shops, great restaurants and plenty of character. The Swarovski shop is worth a visit.

Innsbruck's Altstadt is quite compact compared to many others in Europe. However, it is lively and the old buildings are all well worth a look. Lots of cafés and tourist-oriented shops but that's fine if you're a tourist! A nice place for a walk around and/or to sit for a while.

After we walked the length and width of old-town we sat down at one of the many outdoor cafes and just enjoyed the crowds - our perfect view of tourists as they posed in front of the golden roof! The many nationalities from all over the world, the friendly waiter who didn't mind us staying beyond his closing time -... More

The Altstadt of Innsbruck is really charming. Worth the stroll and it was compact to be covered in a quick stroll before hopping to our connecting train. What is really charming is the mountain background that it has almost with each of each tiny streets.

Most houses are from around 1500. They are individually designed and quite stylish. Given the Age of the buildings it is positively surprising that you never feel too "squeezed". The quarter is clean which is not always the case in old quarters. In the old buildings you find modern shops of all types. Even better are the cafes and Restaurants.... More

It might be "old" but there's life here. I really enjoyed seeing the sites, hearing the sounds and watching the people. The choices for food is a treat as well.
