5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

The Altstadt was beautiful - the Christmas markets were on while we were there which was a real treat! A lovely experience which I would love to have again!

“beauty with elegance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

This "old town" is very beautiful . It has the most unique and amazing buildings with artistic sculptures . Its is very scenic with snow capped mountains in the winter months which is so breath taking. If in Austria one should stay in this town. It is so fresh in the early morning. This town has beauty with elegance,

“Christmas in Altstadt - better than Vienna and Salzburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

In recent years we have visited Vienna and Salzburg, we always go in December and we always stay in the old town, this year we chose Innsbruck, a bit dubiously i have to say as some reviews were not that enthusiastic. However before we even landed we were entralled by the snowy mountains all around and then a five minute taxi trip (11 euros) took us to our hotel just over the river from the old town. The old town is simply charming, at Christmas it was magical, and whenever you look up there are the snowcapped mountains, quite breathtaking. Do come!

“Just in one word Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Innsbruck is just beautiful !
I arrived by plane and the last bit of the route was gorgeous we flew between the snowy mountain tops.
We went to see the Christmas market which had very nice stalls.
Also the shops surrounding the market were very nice.
The buildings in the town centre are fab.
Hope to get back there to see how it is in summer time.

“Beautifully decorated buildings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

The "old town" or Altstadt Innsbruck is typical austrian elegance with the Golden roof (museum), the Helblinghaus with the stucco baroque facade is impressive and almost looks like a big cake, and there is also the city tower that you can climb to have a great view of the city. Just strolling down these small street lined with small shops is a simple pleasure.
