Re: Vienna to Innsbruck by Train

by GrumpyDiver

We did this trip some time ago (and actually contined on through to Switzerland; Zurich, I think). Our daughter was 5 at the time. Room for some luggage by the doors of the train. So it is certainly something that can be done with a younger child - just don't expect them to enjoy the scenery, so take some things along for the child to play with or be entertained by.

On the run through Austria the train operated as an inter-city train and when we crossed over into Switzerland, it seemed to run as a more regional service. The scenery on the Austria run was okay, but nothing special. The Swiss part of the journey was stunning. The 1st class car we were riding in belonged to the Swiss, rather than Austrian railway and had large observation windows you could look up and out through.

I suspect that the issue in Austria was that as an express train, the routing was along a fast, flat and but boring coridor. Once we got to Switzerland and it ran as a local train, we wound through the mountains and got into more scenic areas. We had the same thing happen on a more recent trip in Japan - high speed Shinkansen = boring route; regional and local trains - much more interesting routing.

This is something you might want to keep in mind when you do your booking.

Travel Tips for Innsbruck

Bergisel Skijumping hill

by Bigs

The view form the cafe & restaurant on top of the skijump on Bergisel is fantastic. I also loved exploring this place. You can have a look in the stadium, than go up with the lifts to the jump itself...The first lift runs along the jump and you get some good impressions how steep the hill is! On top of the jump there is a wonderful cafe with panoramic windows... Look straight down while having one of those fantastic cakes. I especially miss our friends from Croatia, which we met here. Nykaenen and Seni, you have been wonderful lads to hanga round with. I also miss the nice people, the great bars and restaurants and the mountains... I´m sure that I will be back someday....

Sachertorte

by ealgisi

Well this is another specialty, that you don't have to miss.

Sachertorte is a chocolate cake, invented by Franz Sacher in 1832 for Klemens Wenzel von Metternich in Vienna, Austria. It is one of the most famous Viennese culinary specialties.

The trademark for the "Original Sachertorte" was registered by the Hotel Sacher, which was built in 1876 by the son of Franz Sacher.
Nobody knows the real recipe because is well kept secret... You can imagine why.

It consists of two layers of dense, not overly sweet chocolate cake with a thin layer of apricot jam in the middle and dark chocolate icing with shreds of chocolate on the top and sides. It is traditionally served with whipped cream without any sugar in it.

Altes Landhaus

by bugulma

There is old land house in MariaTheresien Strasse. It was built in 1725-1728 by Anton Gumpp as an assembly of Tirol Nobility. The courtyard of the building is worth seeing too. Moreover there is a little chapel in the court. Nowadays the parlament of Tirol takes seats here.

Jay Walking

by queevers-irl

In Innsbruck, people do not tend to jay walk. Pedestrians seem to wait obediently until the green man flashes and then cross the road, even when there is literally no car coming. I found this quite strange, since in Ireland we cross at any time, as long as there is no car coming of course. We do not wait for the green man as religiously as those in Austria seem to. In Germany(Stuttgart), I got told off by the police for jay walking. This did not happen in Austria but the two seem quite similar. I suppose it's best to do as the locals do.

Signs

by sim1


Everywhere you look you can see history. Like on this sign for instance, indicating that the building is from 1631. This is one of the many hanging signs in the Altstadt. I really enjoyed looking at all of them. They are so beautiful made.
