A pit stop from Salzburg to St Moritz, I wish I’d been able to spend more than a couple of hours in Innsbruck! A common pitstop on organized tours (the one I did was with Globus), here’s how to make the most of your time in Innsbruck!
Climb city tower for a stunning view
I nearly didn’t do this because it was nearly time to get back to the bus. It was probably best that I left this until last as I basically ran up the winding staircase in just a few minutes and was too excited by the view to feel winded. Definitely worth the climb for this stunning view. You can walk 360 around the top for stunning views in all directions.
Walk the main street
Typical quaint European street…
But even better as it has a stunning mountain backdrop
Wander off into the side alleys…
Eat some gelato
Ok so this is a must anywhere in Europe :p
See the Golden Roof
There was much hype over the golden roof… but it was actually quite underwhelming:
Have more time?
If I’d had more time I would’ve loved to:
- Walk along the waterfront and get better photos of that adorable row of colored buildings
2. Visit the Imperial Palace
3. Visit the Court Church
4. The Imperial Gardens
- Day trip to the cutest European Lakeside Town: Hallstatt, Austria!
- Kreuzenstien Castle – half day trip from Vienna
