Insidertipps Innsbruck

The Little Golden Roof. High mountains. Ski jump. That is the clichéd image of Innsbruck. In reality, however, it is the students who shape the face of the city. Urban cafés like the jungle-like Moustache. Cosmopolitan cultural locations. Tyrolean cuisine in a new light.

Innsbrooklyn is what the young ones call it. A city that is itself a little hipster and which in recent years has developed to become one of the coolest cities in the Alps. In spite of, or rather because of, the fact that in addition to the young energy, there is also plenty of room for tradition. 

Innsbruck for foodies

A look at the gourmet temples of the city. To original cafés. Rustic eateries. The Sky above the Bergiselschanze (almost in the clouds) or of course the market hall that checks all the culinary boxes.

Mei Lie Tjia

At the age of five Mei Lie Tja emigrated with her parents from Shanghai to Vienna. Since then she has been both fascinated and obsessed by Vienna. Mei  loves photo safaris in the chic, bohemian districts, discovering new cafés (espresso with lots of sugar) and writing short stories about magical Vienna.  Since she has become the mother of two children, she no longer has so much time for that – has however discovered a new side of Vienna.
