“Easter one-day trip to Innsbruck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Innsbruck is a nice city - for me, the setting amongst the Alps and the Old Town are really worth a trip whilst the rest of the city is quite ugly with buildings from the 60s and 70s. I am sure there are "cool" areas to go to also in those parts - but for me, we were very happy just seeing the Old Town, strolling along the river Inn and having an exquisite dinner at the 15-point Gault Millau restaurant in the Grand Hotel Europa

“Nice ... just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Innsbruck Altstadt is a cute, small old city. Narrow streets, really nice old tenement houses. Few mimes, cosy cafe's, lots of souvenir shops. Small city mall close to the entrance.
The old city is located at the foot of Alps which makes the place quite picturesque.
On the other hand if you compare the place to the atmosphere of Barcelona, Rome or Prague...it is far far away from those benchmarks.

If you drive by car take a parking lot below the railway station and then make a 5 minute walk - it is still not so cheap but cheaper as it could be in any other place closer to the attraction.

“Where all the action is”

typical old European town centre with good cafes, restaurants and museums. Watch for the Golden rooms and the folk museum is particularly good

“Cute Altstadt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Great to walk around and have the old time feeling. You can cross the bridge/river to the otherside, although I didn't think much was on the otherside. You can see all of Altstadt within 30 minutes.
