Keeping children in a good mood in Innsbruck

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!


  1. 1

    Alpine Zoo

    The special feature of the Innsbruck Alpine Zoo is that it is so high and open 365 days a year. If you do not mind walking a few metres uphill, but you can easily walk from the hotel to the alpine zoo. The new "Animahl" bistro was opened in 2016 (you should go there even just for the beautiful terrace). Cool: the website features videos which visitors have made about the animals. That would be an assignment for the kids!

  2. 2

    Bergisel ski jump

    A ski jumping tower which received the Austrian State Prize for Architecture: the people of Innsbruck were delighted. And most kids will also be happy once they have reached the top by lift and know that they can go down in it again - and don't have to jump off the impressive ski jump. By the way, the hill record is 138m (Michael Hayböck, 2015).



  3. 3

    Swarovski Kristallwelten

    The Swarovski Crystal Worlds (reachable with their own shuttle bus from Innsbruck) are actually considered "art museums", but that does not exclude interested kids. Furthermore when there is already a family day, exciting workshops can be booked, too. Also on site: a play tower and playground, as well as dog boxes for waiting four-legged friends.

  4. 4


    "Science to Go" - is what you get to take away in the Audioversum Science Center for the whole family. Hands-on training is what is asked for here, as well as a dose of entrepreneurial spirit. Ever navigated through your own ear? Then it's high time. Or did you know that our brains are as soft as butter and that when you wear a headset, the bacteria in your ear multiply very fast? Fun for the whole family!
