Innsbruck’s Skyline

Innsbruck’s old town has the charm of a typical urban alpine life. The stunning 2000 meters high snow covered Nordketten mountain range forms the backdrop of the old town of Innsbruck, with the sound of festive tune gently rolling down the balcony of the Golden Roof. Mountain and city mixed together forms a blended harmony, offering a never before experience and a life time of memories to its guests.

Innsbruck is famous for its Christmas markets and there are five of them, each one representing a different flavor and strikes a different note. Together they form one of the most unforgettable romantic locations in the entire Alpine area. There is even a special children’s market with a merry go round, punch and Judy, storytellers, a petting zoo and several other attractions to keep the eager young minds engaged for hours.
