Due to the local scene of junkies and alcoholics that are gathering around the new main train station, the city took the decision to make it an alcohol free zone. So in all the area marked in red (see the pic) around the train and bus station also the Raiffeisen passage it is prohibited to drink alcohol. Exceptions are the cafes and resturants located within the area. Also it is allowed to carry unopened alcohol, as long as you are not drinking it. Fine can go as high as 1 453 Euro.
So here, you have been warned. Drink at your own risk.
Besides be alert around. Pickpockets, beggers, nord africans selling drugs, junkies - you can all find them there
OK OK OK you can stop laughing now.....
We had the best parking anyone could ever get in Innsbruck and it only cost me 21.00 euros.
When we returned to our A-Class Mercedes it had a “Welcome to Austria” parking ticket on the window. Guess it was not too bad to pay 10.00 euros an hour to park in front of the Innsbruck Congress Building.
When you park make sure you look real hard for the little sign and the parking ticket machine, I did not.
We did have the Concierge pay it for us when we got back to the hotel in Munich later that week.
Becareful of some of the narrow roadways....they are curvy and sometimes slippery....the walkways are narrow too, walk in single file if you are with a group.
Just so you know what this place looks like ....
Here it is from another angle.
OK are you done laughing yet.
