The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Innsbruck
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Innsbruck is flanked on all sides by majestic mountain ranges. Above all, the city is known as a first-class ski resort and the venue for three Winter Olympics. When the season starts, many skiers and snowboarders come here to experience the excellent slopes.
However, Innsbruck has much more to offer than just snow slopes. This picturesque Tyrolean town is lined with baroque mansions from the Habsburg period and is filled with the special spirit of an Austrian province where the way of life may not change for centuries.
The Hofburg Palace and Helblinghaus, the Triumphal Arch on Maria Theresa Street and St James’s Cathedral are all legacies of a brilliant imperial era, cherished by posterity. The fabulous Swarovski Crystal Museum will capture the most sophisticated imagination and the magnificent views of the Alpine valleys will linger in the memory.
