Day Trips

Experience Innsbruck’s old town with its various sights. Among them, not only the main emblem of the city, the golden roof which was also home of the Maximilianeum, but also the magnificent Dom to St. Jakob, the barock Helblinghaus, the Hofburg with the magnificent English garden and the Leopoldsfountain belonging to the Hofkirche (“Schwarz Mander Kirche”), also connected to the nations culture museum.

Enjoy the view over Innsbruck’s rooftops from the City Tower and walk down the Maria Theresien Str. up to the Annasäule towards the Triumphpforte (Victory gate).


Visit the renaissance castle Amras with its large and beautiful gardens. Inside the castle is a museum, with no doubt its highlights can be found in the large Knights hall, Culture- and ‘Miracle’ Chamber. Interesting for lovers of old music are the castle concerts that take place in summer.

For Museum fans Innsbruck offers not only the Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum and the Volkskunstmuseum but also the Maximilianeum at the golden roof and the Zeughaus, which offers the history of Innsbruck as well as frequent special exhibitions, and in summer it offers an open air cinema.

Another must is the Kaiserjägermuseum and – especially for sport fans – the ski jump with its modern architecture. Both are located at Berg Isel, which is easy to reach using public transport. Unique in its own way is also the Riesenrundgemälde, which lies at the foot of the Hungerburgbahn – definitely worth a visit.


The Karwendel, which is close to the hotel, offers several excellent hiking tours. Half way to the Hungerburg is the Alpen Zoo, which is home to many various mountain animals. The Hungerburg is both a destination of a tour as well as a starting point for many more hikes.

The Rechenhof – from Hungerburg direction Arzl – is a popular and sunny destination. A wonderful hike is the stretch from the Hungerburg direction west, over the Gramartboden up to the Chapel Höttinger Bild. There are many more Alms to be reached over easier as well as harder tracks.

Mountainbikers are welcome in Innsbruck and rewarded with a very popular biking track not far from the hotel. The Höttinger Alm offers a track that connects with a cross country route heading back down the valley for those bold enough to handle it! The Seegrube is also easy to reach by foot or by cable car, over winter it is known as the Nordpark, offering ski and snowboard fun for all the winter fans.


Innsbruck also offers an interesting nightlife for those visitors who are more outgoing at night than during the day. The Old Town for example or the so called “Viaduktbögen-Meile” are definitely worth a visit. Discos, cinemas, the casino, several different types of stages offering theatrical plays and of course the Tiroler Landestheater will surely make your evenings and nights a pleasant memory.
