This is perhaps the only city in the world where you can ski, explore the great palace, go shopping and enjoy the perfect strudel in one day. In fact, this is exactly what we all love Austria for. A modern historical city immerses you in the heart of the Alps with fresh mountain air and amazing food.
It is the largest airport in Western Austria. The flow of tourists increases in winter significantly due to those wishing to ski in the Alps.
At the same time, the airport itself cannot be called huge. But its modest size is offset by neatness, cleanliness, free Wi-Fi (username and password: airport) and a magnificent view of the mountains that opens onto the terrace.
Of the unusual features: the airport does not work at night. If you arrive earlier than 5 in the morning, be prepared to wait for the opening on the street.
The airport is just a 10-minute drive from Innsbruck. It is connected to the center by bus line F, the second endpoint of which is the train station. Buses leave every 15 minutes, and the fare is only 2 euros.
You can get with great comfort by taxi. But for such a short trip you will have to pay 15-20 euros. However, if you have heavy ski equipment with you, this might be the best option to get to your hotel.
Due to its location at the bottom of the valley surrounded by the mountains of Innsbruck, it is often considered simply just winter fun with world-class ski resorts. However, in the summer you can also see a lot of interesting things here: from visiting the imperial palace to impressive views of the top of the Nordkett Mountain. Innsbruck is another pearl of Austria, which is worth spending at least a few days.
Innsbruck's old town is compact, picturesque and easy to get around in half a day. Take a stroll through the streets with colorful houses, go shopping and, if you're lucky, you can even see street shows. Most of Innsbruck's main attractions are within walking distance of the Old Town or are connected with it by tram.
There are several ways to get to the top of the Nordkette mountain in Innsbruck in order to view 360 ° surroundings. The Hungerburg Funicular is the cheapest and fastest option. It costs only a few euros and quickly gets to the top. You can also take the Nordkette cable car from Hermann Buhl Square. You can go for a walk along the Panorama Trail, which can be bypassed in 30 minutes. The third cable car will take you even higher — to a height of 2300 meters, from where a panoramic view of the Alps opens.
These are two small churches located in the Old Town. Hofkirche is known for its 28 bronze statues of the founders and heroes of Austria. St. James Cathedral is a favorite of tourists because of its Baroque architecture.
Austrian cuisine can vary greatly in different regions. For example, in Innsbruck you can try Tyrolean cuisine.
Tyrolean cuisine is based on a feature of alpine nature. The milk of local cows is considered the best in the world. And all this natural wealth can be tasted in one dish called Marend. This is a very simple set of jerky and smoked meat and sausages on one plate with delicate alpine cheese and bread. Not just a sandwich, but a real alpine sandwich.
Speckknödel is one of the most famous Tyrolean dishes. It can be called the Austrian dumplings with bacon. These large round dumplings filled with bacon are usually served in a broth or with a lush portion of sauerkraut.
There is also its own kind of dumpling in Tyrol — Kaspressknödel. These are flat potato dumplings with cheese, which are amazingly balanced in taste. As a rule, they are also served in the broth as a main course.
And one of the important Tyrolean desserts to try is called Strauben. This is a deep-fried waffle coated with berry jam or chocolate with ice cream. Exactly what you need in a cold Tyrolean climate.
