Summer in Innsbruck, Austria
Tucked within the towering mountains of Nordkette, Serles and Patscherkofel in the Inn Valley of western Austria is the historical city of Innsbruck. Literally meaning the “Bridge over the Inn,” Innsbruck has hosted two winter Olympics and may be known as a winter wonderland, however it’s an equally fascinating destination during the summer months.
Innsbruck is one of those cities with so much history and so many landmarks that excursions are endless. You’re sure to feel like you’ve traveled back in time during your stay here.
Built in the 15th Century, The Golden Roof is perhaps one of Innsbruck’s most popular attractions. Located in the Old Town, this spectacular landmark represents a mixture of both the Baroque and Gothic architectural styles and is not to be missed. Also, be sure to check out the world-famous Bergisel; a historical ski jump site that has been a big part of Innsbruck’s ski history.. Other attractions include the Imperial Palace, the Ambras Castle, Cathedral St. Jacob, the Innsbruck Alpine 200, and so much more.
Innsbruck summer vacation
Take a recess from your history lesson and explore the beautiful landscape and nature offered in and around this remarkable city. Hiking, skydiving, rafting and climbing are only a few of the many different activities offered. Grab the camera and take the Funicular up to Hungerburg or Nordpark and check out an incredible view of the mountain or do some stargazing during an organized night walk/tour to Muttereralm or Seegrube.
As a hub for tourism, the city of Innsbruck even offers the Innsbruck card, which can be purchased and used for many different activities around the city and offers some great benefits.
