Innsbruck is a bustling provincial capital nestled in the Austrian Alps. Innsbruck has stunning views of the Alps, the literal backdrop of this city. The city center has major shopping, stretching north from the train station. The adjoining old-town offers a classic historic core. Innsbruck's universities are also notable. There's a young flair to this city, especially during the semester.
This city is the center of Tyrol, a region which braces the Alps across the Austrian and Italian boarders, ending at the Dolomites to the south. Innsbruck as Tyrol's main city is the transportation hub and hence extremely easily accessible. There are trains from Germany, all of Austria, Switzerland, and Italy constantly arriving and departing. The major north-south motorway also passes Innsbruck. Getting in by plane is also easy, especially in winter, when flying at the local airport picks up.
Surprisingly, Innsbruck is relatively flat and bicycling is popular. Additionally a fleet of flashy new trams and buses roll you around town, in case you're heading out of the center, or just aren't up to walking too far. Driving is a comfortable option as well -- just avoid rush hour.
There are a few hostels in Innsbruck that range in price and size, all aimed at the short-stay traveler -- they are suitable for most. Meeting other travelers or making local friends isn't always easy, though there is plenty of nightlife in town. Ask around -- the student crowd tends to be in the loop. There is a decent arts scene, so you can find diverse theater, music, and arts events nightly.

Hostel Innsbruck Studentenheim
"Hostel Innsbruck Studentenheim is located northeast of the old town, close the Inn River. It was apparently built for the Winter Olympic Games in the seventies, and it unfortunately seems like it hasn't been renovated much since then. The Location The hostel is located somewhere around twenty to thirty minutes from the main train station, if you go on foot. However, there is a bus station right in front of the building and since there...

"Can I give 6 stars? - Unbelievable place. I booked after seeing the reviews but had no idea that I was really going into such a warm, friendly environment. I was the only one there on my first night. It was raining out so I spent the evening drinking and playing games with Jamie. it's typical to eat supper together with the rest of the guests and get to know everyone. The chalet is fantastic, the hosts are incredibly friendly and they know...

Youth Hostel Fritz Prior Schwedenhaus
"Excellent hostel! - Last summer (2010), I traveled in Innsbruck, and booked at this hostel. Innsbruck itself is quite a small town located in the west of Austria, fully surrounded by mountains -- Very breath-taking. The hostel is located right next to the river, and if you are willing to take a 15- or 20-minute walk, you would directly reach the Altstadt (the Old Town) on foot. The hostel is located just in a right location, plus the staff...
Nepomuk's B&B Backpackers Hostel Innsbruck
"Truely excellent when I stayed there in October 2006. Nepomuk's is on on a quiet pedestrian street, right in the old town centre. It is spotlessly clean, and the friendly staff had huge amounts of helpful information on the sights, where to go and what to see. Breakfast is served in a nice cafe next door, and was a wonderful spread, with cornflakes, rolls, jam, coffee, and a huge wedge of cake. I'm sure some cafes in the U.K. would charge as...
"Just got back from a weekend stay at the St. Nikolaus, and what a truly remarkable experience it was. We were in Innsbruck to give our dear friend a proper job of a send off as he enters married life. But sweet Jesus the St. Nikolaus didn't disappoint. Having read other reviews on this site, Team Stag were a little sceptical but the St. Nikolaus delivered. As expected the rooms were a little rough around the edges but this was more than...

Camping Innsbruck - Kranebitten
"Great place to stay! This place is affordable, very clean, and nice. My boyfriend and I rented a two person caravan that was just perfect. There is no running water in the caravan, but a gas stove and fridge were great for cooking, and the close by bathroom and kitchen dish cleaning area were close. The showers were hot and clean, just don't stay on. They go off every three seconds, but I managed to push it on with my hip the whole time to...

Hotel Weisses Kreuz
"Great place to stay! - This hotel was nearly perfect! It's in the pedestrian area of Innsbruck, so it's in the center of the town, yet nice and quiet at night. My room (without private bathroom) was very small, but functionally furnished and very clean. Unfortunately, the only public shower of the hotel was one floor above my room, so a lot of walking. There is only one shower for the whole hotel, but I never had problems, and the shower was...

Innsbruck Travel Tips & Suggestions
Innsbruck is ok -- they're so nice and friendly!
Innsbruck is fantastic! How can anyone say there's nothing to do? Unless, that is, you're not into hiking, skiing, and mountain-biking, in which case it may be a bit boring. It's even worth it for the scenery and the turquoise rivers. It's one of the few places I've left feeling disappointed -- disappointed I didn't stay longer!
Innsbruck is awesome. I recommend a visit to the Scholss Ambross.
Innsbruck is so beautiful!
We love Innsbruck too! We recommend to go to Jimmy's, a nice bar in the center. For those who love to swim, Lanser See is the very best place.
I love Innsbruck. The air is incredible. My skin has never felt so good. Who needs expensive creams when you can go to Innsbruck, go hiking for a day and look like Claudia Schiffer? I love the little church Universitats Kirche near Innsbruck University. It is so sweet.
End your trip with a great, cheap meal at Bergisel! It is just amazing!
I loved Innsbruck. There's so much to do - hiking, skiing, mountain climbing, cycling.
Innsbruck is beautiful, clean, and refreshing. I could easily spend a year there.
Not a lot to do in this place. You wouldn't need more than 2 days!
