The Old Town of Innsbruck is most charming, small, and easy to walk around. You can easily fill two relaxing days. We recommend checking with your hotel concierge about the best way to reach your destination.
A great place to start for maps and information on events and getting around.
A 16th-century imperial palace with lavish interiors and frescoes.
The simple exterior belies the ornate Gothic decorations within, along with a 450 year-old organ.
A 15th-century watchtower with an observation deck. Climb to the top for a view over the city!
Museum of Tyrolean Regional Heritage (5a) – showcasing traditional costumes and historical everyday items; Ferdinandeum (5b) – housing Tyrolean art- work and historic musical instruments; and Zeughause (5c) – offering exhibits on Tyrolean history from prehistory to World War II in a former armory.
An Innsbruck landmark, this small museum showcases the beautiful facade and gilded shingles commissioned by Emperor Maximilian I at the turn of the 16th century to impress travelers entering the city.
For some incredible views of the mountains and the city, take the funicular, which deposits you in Hungerburg, a small ski village, where you can continue to the top via cable car.
Once the royal palace gardens dating from 1410, it’s now a lovely public park with a pavilion, butterfly house, restaurants, and walking paths.
For something truly offbeat, this small academic museum of the Medical University of Innsbruck displays skulls, skeletons, preserved organs and other dissected body parts.
A beautiful example of a late Renaissance Tyrolean castle. There is an extensive armour display dating to the 1400s, a Habsburg portrait gallery, elaborate glass collection, and the “Wonders” exhibit of items collected by Emporer Ferdinand II personally.
