Innsbruck – Austria’s outdoor city
Why? This Austrian gem sits in the scenic Tyrol area and offers outdoor fun and lively nightlife. Surrounded by snow capped mountains, Innsbruck is a charming mediaeval city. Great for snow lovers, you can catch the cable car up to the Nordpark ski area and go from city centre to ski slope in just 20 minutes.
When? If you want to enjoy Innsbruck’s snowy offerings, visit between November and April. However, the mountain is accessible in all seasons for sightseeing and hiking, and Leingartner’s Seegrube & Hafelekar Restaurant offers fine dining with a panoramic view all year round.
Stay? For a good value central hotel, try Hotel Alpine Park; for a chic and modern place to stay, try Hotel Binders and for luxury – the five star Grand Hotel Europa in the historic city centre is known as one of the best in Innsbruck. Alternatively, browse more hotels in Innsbruck.
Innsbruck Nightlife: as one of Austria’s top university towns, Innsbruck offers a varied and vibrant place to eat, drink and be merry. Try the Innkeller with its chic and friendly crowd, the Theresienbräu and the Elferhaus for good food and beer, or the Piano Café for the more mature reveller. Don’t forget to take a stroll through the Old Town at night to soak up the beautifully lit mediaeval facades and arcades.
