Besides Innsbruck's great bars and restaurants and the skijumping of course my favourite thing about this place was the beautiful old houses of the old town. The old town is rather small, it only covers very few streets but there are so many nice buildings here it's unbelieveable! Of course I had to walk around and take pictures of facades as usual....
There's some lovely bars and shops under the arcades of the old houses, you can tourist watch here perfectly, and just walking around is a very nice thing to do really.
It is pretty easy to see most things in Innsbruck just by walking around the streets. I particularly loved the evenings and walking then and stopping at this little bar where the waiter was so old and so bent over and kept bringing everyone else's drink at our table but mine. I was afraid he would cark it before I got it.
Favorite thing: Another view down Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse, from the river end looking towards Goldnes Dachl. The galleries can be seen on the left hand side. The whole length of the street is lined with these galleries that contain a whole variety of shops from modern chain stores to old fashioned vendors.
Favorite thing: One of the very many lovely town houses along Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse. The final building on the left, just as you get to the Goldnes Dachl is probably the most impressive though - see further below on this page.
The old town of Innsbruck---Maria Theresan Strasse---The outdoor cafes on the river Inn--Goldener Adler Hotel and Restaurant
Fondest memory: Shopping in old town by the golden roof. Mist over the river Inn, great Pizza and wonderful pastries and chocolate.
Favorite thing: On Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse, as you come from Maria-Theresia-Strasse towards the Goldnes Dachl, about 1/2 way down on the right, is this house. It's yet another place where Mozart used to live.
Favorite thing: One of the Aldstadt streets, somewhere near where Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse comes out onto the river side. Almost all of the buildings in Aldstadt have lovely external decoration.
