Innsbruck – Tyrol’s capital
The close by town of Innsbruck as a cultural and social focus of Tyrol and Habsburg’s alpine treasure chamber invites visitors to come and discover: The baroque palaces of the aristocracy at the Maria Theresien Straße, the “Goldene Dachl”, the Hofburg and Hofkirche with the “Schwarze Mandern” and the cathedral of St. James are only some cultural and historical highlights of the historic centre. The historic centre actually possesses its own charm. Especially at Christmas time, it presents itself magnificently decorated. After skiing in the Stubaital, a visit to the Innsbrucker Christkindlmarkt, including a taste of mulled wine, sounds great. Travel time: 15 - 25 minutes.
Insider tip: The Stubaitalbahn takes you directly from the Stubaital to the Maria Theresien Straße in the heart of the city.
Around Innsbruck the Wiltener Rococo Basilica, the art and miracle chamber in Castle Ambras, the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, the Innsbruck alpine zoo and the silver mine in Schwaz invite to experience cultural diversion.
