I have vusited countless middle European Old Towns and there is nothing extraordinary about this one. Quite an opposite. Small, sady back allies, rude people, airplanes going over the heads, ugly and not so ugly new buildings just next to the old ones, turists, lot of shops and few decent restaurant. There is just much better kept and more interesting... More

Wonderful gothic buildings a little spoiled by crowds, but look at the detail.....get an Innsbruck card and see all the sights for free. Dodge the bubble blowers, human statues and hustlers.

A vistor t Europe cannot ignore scenic Austria and Innsbruck, the city in the Tyrolean Heartland in Alps. The city has a long history and was once the seat of the Imperial Court of Maxmillan I.(19th century) But the real history of this beautiful city can be seen in the two major museums, the Archduke Ferdinand II's Schloss Ambras(10th Century)...

The thing about old town is, it cannot look too old. It has to have good preservation and Innsbruck Altstadt did it. We walked around aimlessly and was very happy to find many little shops and cemeteries dotted along the way. The variety of gift shops was vast, you could get made in china mozarts (towels, pins, pens) or locally/regionally... More

One of the loveliest old towns I have visited in Europe. I would advise abandoning your map and just having a good walk round, avoid all the touristy shops and try and look for the little traditional ones instead. The buildings are all painted different colours and are very pretty.

Came to Innsbruck for a weekend in December and had a lovely time. There were several Christmas markets around the Altstadt and it was great to wander from stall to stall. Found a lovely restaurant for a meal in the evening (sorry, can't remember its name, but it was just to the left of the Golden Roof).The best stall was... More

A wonderful old town with the famous Kroll strudel house in the Hofgasse with its many varieties of savoury strudels such as spinach and goat's cheese.. the Christmas market was not open by the first week in Advent and had been completely cleared away by christmas Eve.

Great place to be when one wishes to see this unique town with beautiful alps as background, unique little lanes with little handicrafts shops. Sadly, you could only window shop on Christmas day coz all are closed.

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!
