Advent in Innsbruck

Advent in Innsbruck: traditional, contemplative and romantic at the same time, the city is set against an incomparable mountain backdrop. The Christmas Market in the heart of the old town, in front of Innsbruck’s landmark, the Little Golden Roof, is by far the main attraction!

    Christkindlmarkt Altstadt

    This is where the people of Innsbruck celebrate Advent: from 15 November to 23 December 2021, the heart of the old town is dominated by traditional folklore art. Around 70 rustic wooden huts tempt visitors with their delicious punch and tasty farmers’ doughnuts, their carved nativity scene figures and colourful felt hats.

In search of wow experiences for children

The Innsbruck Card also includes the Innsbruck Sightseeing Bus. It stops at most of the important points in and around Innsbruck and, while the parents listen to the audio guide, the kids can relax while looking out the window and enjoying a snack you have bought - until the next wow experience. Incidentally, the bus also stops right in front of the Austria Trend Hotel in Innsbruck!

Not always imperial, but always interesting

As a former imperial residence (with a view of the Alps, mind you) Innsbruck was an important location in Austrian history. That's why there is a quasi second Hofburg with imperial apartments - as in Vienna. Especially Maximilian I was delighted with his Innsbruck. So delighted that he also wanted to be buried here: the Court Church is actually only there because of him - however he did not live to see the 40 statues, the "black men", which he wanted to have around his grave. Today only 28 remain. Rich ones too.
