Austria’s fifth-largest city and two-time host of the winter Olympics, find out why you should discover Innsbruck…
Have your camera ready… Tyrol’s capital demands a place in your holiday albums with its pretty town squares, mountain panoramas and imposing palaces.
That said, you do have to wonder whether city planners over the years simply shrugged, and gave up trying to compete with the glorious mountains. From the muted pastel colours of the buildings to the attractively stark avenues, Innsbruck doesn’t even try to vie with the magnificent, natural scenery just beyond the city limits. Instead, it co-exists harmoniously with the neighbouring Alps.
Friendly Innsbruck offers a true taste of life in Austria. Come for the Christmas markets, savour a dash of Tyrolean folk culture, see the Hofburg Palace, or take tea in the English-flavoured Hofgarten. With access to many ski runs direct from Innsbruck, you can even combine urban adventure with on-piste action.
With direct flights from the UK taking just under two hours and low fares available all year round, who wouldn’t be tempted by cheap flights to Innsbruck?
