"Innsbruck, the capital of the..." Austria Favorite Tip by steventilly

Austria General: 282 reviews and 255 photos


Favorite thing: Innsbruck, the capital of the Tirol region is beautiful historic city. It's small enough to make it a day-trip destination if all you want to see is the city, but there is so much surrounding Innsbruck too that you could easily spend longer here.

This is the Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof), probably Innsbruck's most famous sight.

Fondest memory: What we loved about Innsbruck was the ancient streets of the Aldstadt, crammed with cafes and bars, and the galleried shops that stood back from the streets. The atmosphere around the city was just so laid back, much less hectic than in Salzburg and Vienna.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
