Innsbruck

Located high in the Austrian Alps, Innsbruck is the capital city of the region of Tyrol. You can fly with Austrian Airlines and explore this scenic tourist destination. Innsbruck is a beautiful city of over 100,000 residents surrounded by mountains and an amazing landscape. The city offers a variety of ski slopes such as Tulfes, Mutters, Igls and Hungerburg providing an abundance of alpine sporting opportunities. Skiers and snowboarders are attracted to Innsbruck from far and wide. The city itself also has a lot to offer to visitors. Innsbrucks attractions are mainly concentrated around the precinct of 'Altstadt' (old town) and include the home of Ferdinand II and 'Hofburg' the Imperial Palace. The large student population combined with a large number of skiers visiting Innsbruck provide for a lively and fun atmosphere.

Sitzwohl

The sitzwohl didn't earn its name because its guests are so well seated, as the name would imply, but because one of the owners is called Irmgard Sitzwohl. Nonetheless, guests at this noble restaurant feel anything but unwell. Olive tones, dark wood features and tall windows create the right setting for a sophisticated culinary offering, which could only be described as mediterranean with an Austrian influence. The constantly evolving menu features such delights as mozzarella and rocket lettuce along with grilled chicken and beef broth.   There is a bar which serves diverse dishes at lunch time for the hurried business people and comforting cocktails at the end of the day. And for those who can't wait around at all, the fine delicacies are also available for take-away at the Geislerei, so they can be enjoyed at the workdesk. And apropos Geislerei, it is named after the second boss, Elisabeth Geisler. All the dishes here are prepared with love, which often has a noticeable effect on the stressed work crowd who frequent this restaurant for a brief slice of heaven.

Schwarzer Adler

Once upon a time the Seegruben gondola brought skiers to the snowy slopes of the Tyroler mountain world. Nowadays she has found rest on a terrace. So what happened? Simple really. The disposed gondola was purchased by the Schwarzer Adler and promptly turned into a Tyrolean séparée. Now guests can cruise in style on the restaurant's rooftop-terrace and hold a summit meeting in a dignified space. As creative and comfortable as it is, the eyrie costs ?50 per half-day, which can be dropped once racked up a large enough bill.   This is no large feat, considering the menu on offer: exclusively fresh local produce and Tyroler specialties quickly turn into a feast and will push your belt to the limits. For those who find the gondola a bit too draughty can always find respite in one of the parlours. The wood used for the ceiling panelling in the Arquin parlour come from a cottage high up in Navistal and the pictures on the walls are painted by local artists. The Adler (eagle) parlour has been preserved in its orignal condition whilst the Jäger (hunter) parlour is fitted out with modern leather. And military soldiers from the nearby barracks used to drink in the Pfiff bar, which now plays host to Innsbrucks only vodka bar.

Burkia

The Tennisstüberl was a hit for all fans of the ball rally in the 80s. Nowadays, the parents have passed the ball on to their children. And rightly so, as the next generation have expanded the menu to include a great wine list that has blown the competition away. The other guests will tell you, the heady selection of wines from Austria, Italy, Spain and even Australia are on the ball.   The manager is happy to answer all of your wine questions, as he is a trained Sommelier and really knows his stuff. That's why only the finest regional wines are on offer here: the Burkia brothers rely on the tried and tested mixed regionals and seasonals and serve down-to-earth, traditional dishes using fresh produce from local farmers. For example; there's pork medaillons, chicken filet and sour boiled rump. Pretty much everything what a gourmet would expect from a fine Austrian restaurant. But those who really want to get the ball rolling should order something from the house Knödelzyklus (dumpling cycle), as there is another dumpling classic on offer every wednesday. Whether you hit that perfect serve after a heavy tyrolean pumpling is however questionable. One tip: Stay where you are and instead of serving, strike at one of the delectable desserts on offer.

SIGHTS in Innsbruck

Sights in Innsbruck
Volkskunstmuseum

The devil is awaiting you at the Volkskunstmuseum (folk art musuem). He's standing at the entrance and he greets all who dare with uncomfortable questions about their existence and attestation, art and handwork. Inside the devil is also to be seen in detail: the Volkskunstmuseum enchants its visitors with an affectionately amassed collection that puts the Tyroler tradition on display for all. Dusty and crummy? No way! Thanks to projection tricks, you will be placed right in the middle of the holy scene with Josef, Maria and little Jesus.   'Das pralle Jahr' room sheds light on Tyrolean traditions and 'Das prekäre Leben' exhibits feats of magic and superstitions, whilst 'Sein und Schein' deals with traditional Tyrolean 'Trachten' fashion which hasn't been in since 1900, but is still worn by city folk. The studied collection is the most traditional 'museum' section, which comprehensively displays everything to do with living and working back in the day. The exploration of the typical Tyrolean farming way of life throughout the gothic, renaissance and baroque periods is rounded up with audiologues which give explanation to objects and breathe life into the history on display.

Film Festival

Action! This international film festival in Innsbruck celebrates the smaller yet finer celluloid films and inspires its audience year after year with independent pieces from all over the world. But Austria's own film scene has gathered some more wind under its sails. It started with Haneke and reached its climax with Christopher Waltz, whose career is still on the up. So it's no wonder that film festivals in Austria are booming events: finally the alp country can celebrate Stefan Ruzowitzy's Oscar instead of mourning the loss of its former superstar Billy Wilder.   In Innsbruck however, the Jury has concentrated on international films and has pulled in stories from around the world. In fact, only films from Latin America, Africa and Asia feature here. This year there are even a few films from North Korea, Brasil and Tajikistan. There are also plenty of short films, specials and panel discussion to round off the festival.

City Tower

Those that want to get up there in Innsbruck don't always have to climb up to the mountain tops. The city tower will get you there too. The story behind it is just as considerable as the number of steps up here: since 1442, the tower has been ised as a watch tower, a fire department tower, a clock tower and even a prison. These days visitors come here on their own free will to enjoy the uninterrupted views of Innsbruck. It is even better to come here in the middle of summer and pant your way all the way up the 148 steps as temperatures inside the tower are much lower than those outside.   And when you make your way to the top you can look out for enemies and fires, just like in the old days. You are also sure to see the onion-domed tower, the huge clock towers, the old town and the mountains in the backdrop. Don't forget to leave your fear of heights at home!

STAY in Innsbruck

Grauer Bär

It is bucketing down in the Hotel Grauer Bär. The sky may be free of clouds outside, but it's about to pour down inside. And this is done for good reason: refreshing tub showers help stressed business people cool down after heated debates. The 300m large wellness area was made as a relaxing equaliser to stressful everyday life. You can get yourself all heated up in the Finnish sauna or the Turkish steam bath and cool down in the current pool or step out onto the terrace and enjoy the panoramic views of the mountainous backdrop. And if you still haven't found your inner self after that, douse your evening with a tub shower or a glass of bubbly in the Onyx Bar.   The modern conference hotel also has other delights in store: like minds can come together in one of six conference rooms equipped with high-speed internet and the ski room is there to accomodate all your skiing gear in the winter months. And those who already feel cramped up after a long day in the city can prepare him or herself for the next seminar with a well-deserved massage. Double rooms are available from ?135 a night.

Binders

Innsbruck isn't exactly the design centre of the world. In Tyrol, traditions are more important than the trappings. Those who are looking for that big city flair are really at the wrong address here. But the BinderS hotel attempts to change that. The art hotel has set a new accent in old Innsbruck and makes quite a splash with its 15 different designs. The Sleep Colour room contains twelve colours, the Sleep Loft provides an urban feeling with its water bed and bright, expansive rooms, not to mention the bathroom that simply screams lifestyle.   As an added extra, the Smart car fleet provides those without a car the opportunity to explore every nook and cranny of the city with the perfect city explorer on four wheels. And after an exhausting day in the mountains you can permit yourself a beer or even a schnaps in the hotel bar. No need to do this on an empty stomach however: although BinderS doesn't offer a three course meal, the snacks on offer are enough to keep you on the safe side of tipsy. Double rooms are available from ?78 per person.

Goldene Krone

Many of the traditional hotels have some sort of colour in their name. Attentive ones may have noticed the Schwarzen Adler (Black Eagle), the Grauen Bär (Grey Bear) and the Weisse Kreuz (White Cross). But now theres the undisputed queen of all colours - the Goldenen Krone (Golden Crown). But it's not just the name that distinguishes this hotel, but also its location - right in the middle of Innsbruck's shopping strip. Don't want to carry your shopping bags halfway through the city? Just drop them off at the hotel!   And the rooms are big enough for it. We recommend the family room, even if you don't have any children. The bay window alone has enough room a few pairs of traditional Tracht outfits and loden hats. If that's not enough, you can always spread your findings across the couch and the table. If you have blown your credit limit, then you can still go and blow a notch on your belt at the hotel restaurant. Double rooms are available from ?118 a night.

SHOPPING in Innsbruck

Shopping in Innsbruck
Rathausgalerien

If you don't travel to Innsbruck in the middle of summer, you might risk frozen toes and icy credit cards. Thank god for the Rathausgalerien (city hall gallery). Here you can carry out your favourite hobby without shivering teeth. Plus you can really let your credit card glow in the exclusive boutique stores. Let yourself defrost here and you won't be leaving quickly. If you don't get stuck in Hugo Boss, Calzedonia or Mango, then it'll probably be in either Gant, Jones or Lacoste. And if you are still freezing, then the sporting fashion at North Face will help you bear the cold.   Time for a break after so much shopping? There are great gastronomical pleasures to be found here as well. Lichtblick have a great gourmet menu, fine traditional fare at Gössers or Indonesian curry noodles at Thai-Li-Ba. With so many international offerings, it's so hard to choose. To top off a successful day, stop off at La Habana for a cuban cigar, where you can also soak up the cuban tunes and enjoy a well-deserved cocktail.

Heimatwerk

Those who have already worn a Dirndl know that you can't just simply slip yourself in. If you've got enough time, you should definitely drop by the Tiroler Heimatwerk for a test fitting. Firstly there's a part that comes underneath, then a part over the top, which has to be fixed at the back, buttoned-up at the front and then all bound together. It seems that back in the day, people simply had a whole lot more time on their hands. What is more, the cleavage has to fit right, otherwise you can forget it. Those who still want to give it a try should drop by at the Tiroler Heimatwerk, where the selection is so great and the cuts are so varied that you are guaranteed to find something that fits just right.   The Heimatwerk stays true to tradition, without ignoring the modern. Designer tracht has recently become quite fashionable amongst celebrities; in politics, sport and the media. And justifiably so, the suits and lederhosen may look a bit out of place in everyday life, but the knitted hats and jackets look quite smart at almost any party, without being too inconspicuous. The handmade glasses, tee-mixes and wooden bowls on offer also contribute to today's sense of fashionable living.

Wagnerian!

A new book smells good, it feels good and it accompanies you throughout your entire holiday. If you read through it too quickly, you should drop by the Wagner!sche bookstore. It has been around for over 300 years and is now a part of the Thalia bookstore chain. As a rule, Thalia bookstores offers bookworms throughout the country pretty much everything available in the printed world; crime thrillers, non-fiction, historical novels, classics and the latest hits as well as the well-received audio books.   Thalia also boasts an extensive stationery section, with office and school supplies in great numbers. Devoted bookworms can burn through their new purchases in the store's café or sit in on one of the many readings that take place. You, see books aren't just sold in Wagner!sche, but they are also talked about, in the form of a literary quartet where the latest books and authors are skilfully opened and inspected.
