    MIDDAY IN THE ALTSTADT

    Midday in the Altstadt
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: Later in the day, we came back to the Altstadt looking for somewhere to have lunch.
    How the area had changed! There were throngs of people and those tables that were being put out on the cobblestones were now partially filled with people. The streets were much busier and packed with tourists, and now tour groups are being show through the Altstadt. It seems like the whole world is here as I see different faces and here people speaking many different languages. No chance of photo of the Golden Roof without plenty of people now! People are browsing the shop windows and inside these narrow shop buildings, it is quite hard to move. The air smells of smoke and all kinds of food!

    Yes, Midday is a very different experience to in the morning!

    SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL

    by balhannah Written Jun 12, 2014
    Swarovski crystal shop

    Favorite thing: Located in the Altstadt on Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse 8, is the Swarovski Innsbruck boutique.

    I had no intention of buying any crystal, but there was no harm in looking!
    The shop is in one of the centuries-old buildings where inside is a large display of crystal.
    Crystal can be made into many beautiful objects, like jewellery, vases, chandeliers, figurines and even a crystal souvenir for something different to take home.
    Something different is the wine bar, where wine from Swarovski’s Argentine winery, Bodega Norton is served.

    If you want to see a lot more crystal, then go to Swarovski Kristallwelten at the village of Wattens, just a short distance away from Innsbruck

    Fondest memory: Tel: +43 (0)512 573100

  • Beautiful buildings in the old town

    My favourite picture from Innsbruck

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Walking Make Sightseeing Easy

    Favorite thing: 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.

    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.
