I have to admit that Innsbruck was just a convenient stop-over to reduce the time on the train between Vienna and Venice in Italy. Apparently the average temperature in Innsbruck is just 8 degrees C, but it can be quite warm in summer.

When I visited Innsbruck the temperatures ranging from 11 to 20 degrees C during the day (ideal!). The vista of the town with the high Alps looming over the city was stunning. You could see the Paragliders buzzing down the slopes and the Cable cars crawling up the slope in the distance.

Innsbruck was very pleasant with lots to do and see and had a nice feel about it.

The local Sightseer Tour bus is a good way to get started to identify the attractions you want to visit.

Folk Museum - Innsbruck

The Folk Museum is well worth a visit. It has a very comprehensive collection of a wide range of cultural items including masks and clothing, toys, tools, ceramics, jewellery and lots or unusual items and adornments.

The images provide an introduction to what is displayed. It is generally not crowded.

Mountain Views, Walks, Alpine Zoo in Innsbruck

It is quite easy to get to the top of the scenic Innsbruck’s Nordkette mountain that looms over Innsbruck. A funicular (cable Tram) runs from downtown Innsbruck to Hungerburg. Next you take a cable car up to Seegrube, and another one to Hafelekar right at the summit(2256 meters). You can hop off and visit the Alpine Zoo on your way up or down. There is a nice restaurant and cafe at Seegrube and Hafelekar. You can buy a ticket of all or part of the journey. You can extent your experience by venturing along one of the walking trails that lead from the two major stops. It you are energetic and fit you can either walk up or walk down. The slope is incredibly steep.

Scenic Railway through the Alps

The train journey through the Alps, both north and south of Innsbruck. in Austria and Italy is very scenic. The images provide a taste of the spectacular scenery. Don't miss it if you are travelling this way. The dramatic change to wineries and vineyards in Italy is one the features. The turbid blue streams are also fascinating. Not sure why the streams had this color and appearance. Such stream were common in Innbruck and in Italy between Milan and Venice. I loved Innsbruck and would love to visit it in winter.
