Reviews of Innsbruck

The city is not what i expected (quite city in mountains) It is a little bit busy (august) not too much to see, BUT there is Nordkette cable car to Hafelekar (from center directly in mountains, with many stops, at the last there is the best mountains view)

Lovely Austrian city at the heart of the alps. Perfect for hikes and nature during the summer and some intense skiing in the winter. The town itself is very walkable, with lots of cute small streets in the old town - food selection is mostly Bavarian inspired cuisine but good restaurants overall. Great for a 2-3 day trip.

Innsbruck is basically lovely year round. There is plenty to do in the city and it also makes for a very convenient home back for day trips throughout the region.

In any season, Innsbruck is simply gorgeous. In winter, it's a skiing paradise with the longest ski runs I've ever experienced in my life. In summer, it's the deepest green I've ever seen made all the more remarkable by the stunning, snow-covered alps in the background. Innsbruck will have you spinning in the hills singing the 'Sound of Music' guaranteed.
