Home to the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics, Innsbruck is a renowned skiing destination.  The nearby glaciated terrain makes summer skiing possible.  Innsbruck is also popular also for mountaineering in the summer.

The Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof) is one of Innsbruck's top sights.   Built at the beginning of the 16th century, the roof contains 2657 copper tiles gilded with gold.   Other places to see include the Swarovski Museum in nearby Watten (located about 15km from Innsbruck).

Travel Tips from people who've been to Innsbruck
One of the best things I did while in Innsbruck alone for a week was to go hiking with the Alpine School of Innsbruck. This is the best thing ever!!! The School offers free hiking every morning and even an evening lantern hike. They even provide you with hiking shoes and a backpack, a guide and transport to the hike trail. They meet at the Congress Center at 9 am (check the city info office for more details on where the hikes are) and the hikes last 4-6 hours. The hike I did was long but so amazing that I will never forget my trip there. The evening lantern tour is fun too as you stop for drinks and music. I would never have gone hiking alone on my trip and the Alpine School offered me the ability to do one of my favorite things with a trained guide. Plus, I got to meet some very interesting people.

Skiën kan ik niet maar toch is het er fijn geweest! Zaha Hadid haar recente creatie voor skilift is er geplaatst en is fantastisch om er mee naar de hoogte te gaan. De Inn rivier geeft energie aan de stad en is leuk om er langs te wandelen zelfs een fiets die je moet meesleuren bederft de pret niet! Fitnessen in een design complex waar een heel gedeelte enkel voor de vrouwen is en dus geen pottekijkers gewenst zijn! Ook welness is daar niet onbekend. Alles doe je met de fiets, niets is te ver, ook een toffe geologische wandeling kan een avontuur zijn die je niet had gepland. Een zoo dat ligt op een helling en waar je in de kooien kan gaan staan is zeker een bezoekje waard! Met andere woorden buiten skiën en Snowboarden zijn er heel wat andere dingen te beleven in Innsbruck

Innsbruck is a lovely little city in the far west of Austria. Ideal for ski holidays in the winter and hiking in the summer. There is a few restaurants that can only be reached by hiking up a mountain for about an hour or so, a schnitzel has never tasted better after a hike like that! When flying into Innsbruck, not how close you get to the mountainsides. Especially if you are connecting in Frankfurt or other places to the North. Your plain will have to make a pretty sharp curve right between the 2 mountain ranges to either side of the city!
