The Altstadt is a beautiful area of Innsbruck. Friedrich Strasse which leads to the Golden Roof has arched walkways with a good variety of interesting small shops. The Golden Roof is in an open square which when we visited was filled with the Christmas market. A climb up the Stadtturm is well worth the effort.

We were quite lucky as we visited Innsbruck during the christmas period... Everything so well decorated and the christmas markets just cute, full of people, Gluhwein, food, and good mood... We like in general Innsbruck very much! Especially during Christmas and snowing period is a must to go!

Innsbruck is famous for its Xmas markets. They are very nice and attract thousands of people. Too many, probably, to enjoy its historical center, which is really very impressing. Strolling around is very enjoyable. Many things to see, a couple of masterpieces, and many shops richly decorated. Really worth a visit.

Innsbruck is such a tiny and well-organized city that you can discover every corner in its center in just one day on foot! I'd definitely recommend walking along each and every street in the historical area since it reflects the history and the Alpine tradition of the city and its surroundings very well. The west side of the HbF or... More

We arrived Sunday afternoon, bought the Innsbruck Card. Took advantage of the sun being out in November here and went up to the top of the mountain via the Cable Cars. Glorious! Who cares about the crush in the cable cars! Monday, found the Imperial Palace had closed for November, as were the Audio Museum and several other local attraction.... More

It was a Saturday, so lots going on as far as entertainers on the promenade which is a pedestrian area with many restaurants offering outdoor seating, ice cream (gelato) shops, and mixed shopping opportunities .Strolled over to the river for some pictures and purchased some jewellery...

I had great day in Innsbruck, but around 1,5 h in the ciry center was quite enough to make an impression. The Best thing is the snowy mountains you see between the houses, it creates special atmosphere of the city. It is a bit italian, a bit average austrian, take a short walk to see main sights on the way... More

Quite a neat place, indeed. Yet, unwelcoming tourists in November a many museums are closed, which is quite disappointing as it could attract more visitors during this interim season. Otherwise it is a usual Austrian town with fine cousine as in the most of the country.
