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.

Was very surprised how nice the city centre is, situated in the valley surrounded by mountains. A must see not only for nature lovers!

The Alt Stadt is lovely, small, so you can get around easily, but lovely, with different detail & interesting things around each corner. And lots of nice places to eat, such as the Goldenes Adler, good places to drink, such as the Stiftskeller and the Elfer Bar.

Stopped in Innsbruck for an hour or so prior to getting our flight home after a weekend skiing The old town is very pleasant and sufficiently compact for a whistle stop tour with some interesting buildings and a little market where my wife bought some beautiful hand painted bird decorations The only thing we noted was the large contingent of...

The Altstadt or "Old Town" is an absolute must-see. Find the most quaint little shops and restaurants here and enjoy the magic of the Golden Roof as you sip on a cappuccino. The Hofkirche and Tirol Folk Art museum are both in close vicinity.

Take a stroll by the main road. Get lost in the little city surroundings, have a nice strudel, go to a head shop, go to the Swarovsky museum. It is completely safe and the scene mixed with mountain view is just breath taking. Chill by the river, have a beer or a nice coffee somewhere.

The focus is the Golden Roof above a C15th building at the end of a square, which has other ancient buildings. It attracts lots of visitors, and is featured on Austrian stamps at present. If it looks in shadow, just walk around a bit and return later, when the sun shines on it. Other places to visit are the Hof... More
