The super-futuristic Bergisel ski jump is a contrast to some of Innsbruck’s more historical landmarks. For uninterrupted views of the Tyrolean mountains, hop on the funicular and then take the lift to the top – or climb 455 steps if you’d prefer. The main tower offers a restaurant, a panoramic viewing platform and of course - the ski jump starting ramp.
The Imperial Palace, also known as the Hofburg, dates back to the 18th century and was the place the Habsburgs called home. To get a real sense of imperial life back then, take a stroll through the Imperial Apartments and you’ll feel as though you’re walking back in time. After all of the nostalgia, make your way to the elegant Sacher Café of Innsbruck and have a nice cup of coffee to ease yourself back to the real world.
For a dazzling experience, head for Swarovski Crystal World. Situated just outside of Innsbruck, it offers something for all the family. Make your way through the mouth of an enormous giant – yes, giant – and discover no less than 14 ‘Chambers of Wonder’. Each one has been created by world-renowned artists and designers such as Alexander McQueen, Tord Boontje and Brian Eno, to let your imagination go wild in a world of crystal fantasies. Go on, release the inner child in you.
