The great Alpine outdoors, the grandeur of imperial architecture, the captivating realm of Swarovski, heart-pumping snow sports, and an unparalleled Renaissance charm — this is Innsbruck. Known as the best gateway to Austria’s rich Tyrolean culture, Innsbruck captures hearts without fail even with just a short stay. But this doesn’t mean you’ll have to stick to just three days — the longer you stay in Innsbruck, the more of it you can enjoy!
After checking into your hotel and freshening up, time to explore Innsbruck. Go for a scenic ride aboard the Nordkette cable cars, to get a true taste of the place. Ride the Nordkettenbahn – a funicular with stations that double as architectural masterpieces. 20 minutes ride on a cable car will get you to an elevation of 2000 meters. Take in awe inspiring scenery on the way up and admire the majestic mountain views when you reach the top.
Return to the old town or Alstadt, where you will see a striking structure made of 2657 fire-gilded copper tiles! It glints a brilliant gold when struck by the rays of the sun – hence naming it The Golden Roof! Spend some time on foot in the old town and then return to your hotel for some evening entertainment.
