As Austria's fifth-largest city and Tyrolean capital, Innsbruck rests peacefully along the River Inn's junction with the Wipp Valley. This beautiful location, coupled with the surrounding high Alpine peaks, frame the city's well-known backdrop, a testament to the city's status as an internationally celebrated hub of winter sports. As the German name "Innsbruck" suggests - a bridge over the Inn - the city has struck a perfect balance between its urban bustle and tranquil nature.

From the early Stone Age onwards, Innsbruck has been a place of human settlement. In the 4th century, the Romans established the army station Veldidena, marking the birth of modern Innsbruck. By 1429, the city was dubbed Tyrol's capital and would later become a prominent player in 15th-century European politics and culture.

Today, Innsbruck pulls in vast swathes of tourists, with over a million overnight stays recorded each year. Accessible via highways, railways, and an international airport, it is a city that effortlessly blends the convenience of modern travel with the timelessness of its cultural and historical heritage, from its nine distinct boroughs to its prestigious University founded in 1669.

When to visit Innsbruck

The optimal time to explore Innsbruck's multifaceted allure is between May and September. During these months, travellers can revel in Austria's warmth, with July and August offering the highest temperatures. On the other hand, those seeking to tread the path less trodden can consider January, February, March, or November, when the crowds thin out and a serenely intimate experience awaits.

Nevertheless, Innsbruck's chromatic beauty perseveres even in the coldest months of January and February. From winter sports to cosy café corners, the city remains an encapsulating spectacle. Meanwhile, the rain showers of May through to August cast over the city a refreshing hue, adding an alluring appeal to your Austrian adventure. The climatic uncertainties of Innsbruck, much like its cultural blend, form a significant part of its unique charm.
