I was surprised by how small this area of town is. Packed with tourists, the majority of this part of town is souvenir shops and cafes and restaurants. There are a couple of interesting buildings to look at but nothing to write home about. All in all I wasn't very impressed with Innsbruck and the highlight for me was the... More

Whilst the Altstadt (Old Town) was fairly small there were a lot of attractions to see and the purchase of the Innsbruck card reduces the cost of these substantially including the cable car to the top of the mountain and the alpine zoo. These cards are available from hotels and from the tourist information centre in the Altstadt (Old Town).

The Innsbruck altstadt is small and doesn't have too many tourist attractions to keep one's attention. Really, it's mostly restaurants and tourist trinket shops to satiate the hordes of bus and other visitors that stop en route to somewhere else. The Cathedral of St. James is a highlight, and the Hofgarten is worth a visit too. The altstadt is nice... More

Innsbruck has a relatively small, compact old town which is really nice to stroll through. We stared at the side of the Inn river and walked all through the nice , small alleys, enjoying the colorful and extremely well kept old houses. Certainly worth a visit of a couple of hours.

Thank you Tripadvisor. It was the pictures on your Trip Advisor website that inspired us to spend two night in Innsbruck. We had such fun those two days just walking around the Old City. And with your recommendation we stated at a very nice hotel near the train station--the Best Western Lipziger Hof. What a beautiful town!

Innsbruck is a very pretty little Tirolean town. The streets are clean, the people friendly and such a pleasure to walk around. There is a lot to see in the Old Town and you will need a few days to see most of it.

Not too far to walk from the railway station, but has lots to see, plenty of cafes and gift shops. Many museums and other attractions, but check they are open every day. Over sixties pay less and you can get get a cheap inclusive pass for the main museums that lasts for more than a month ones (cheaper than the... More

We have been to Innsbruck before so knew roughly what to expect and we were not disappointed. This charming city was bustling with tourists as you would expect so we took a stroll down by the river and walked along to the municipal park. It was interesting to see "Chess" being played in the park with some enthusiasm. Plenty of... More

You can just walk around and enjoy the view of the all beautiful houses and small streets with great coffee shops and restaurants in them. It's also great for shopping in smaller shops or two bigger malls. Simply great atmosphere.
