    Innsbruck Transportation

    I arrived in Innsbruck on a EuroCity train from Verona, and left twenty-four hours later on the same train bound for Munich. The journey took three and a half hours from Verona to Innsbruck, over the Brenner Pass, and not quite two hours from Innsbruck to Munich, going down the Inn Valley most of the way. These are not the most modern trains in...

    Innsbruck Transportation

    As our Hotel was located 4.5kms from the city centre and we didn't want to drive into Innsbruck, we caught a Bus. The bus stop was near our Hotel. We bought our ticket from the Bus driver, which is a little more expensive than buying it from the ticket machine. The ticket must be validated in the ticket machine on the Bus. The 4.5km trip cost us 2...

    Innsbruck Transportation

    In this vicinity of Austria is the wonderful E60 autobahn, that means fast travel from Innsbruck to Brengenz on the border of Switzerland. This is great and we did use it sometimes. The problem of the Autobahn is taking photos, no where to stop, and fast traffic. You really don't want to miss this incredibly scenic drive that takes you through the...

    Innsbruck Transportation

    The Hungerburg Funicular was built once the area known as Hungerburg became populated in the 19th century. Back then, it was wooden coaches with an iron undercarriage and five compartments. The Hungerburg funicular could transport 300 people every hour. In January 1907, the “local railway company” of the city Innsbruck acquired the Hungerburg....

    This tourist map of the city centre. Hahaha, of course I found this little map when I got home, and I didn't have it while I was in Innsbruck :-)) The Altstadt in Innsbruck is very small, and the best way to get around is on foot. The most important sights : S Main station 1 Golden Roof. Late-Gothic bay window. Built under Emperor Maximilian...

  • Walking

    Innsbruck Transportation

    The train station is very close to the main centre of the town and makes travelling easier to other cities such as Vienna & Salzburg. Travelling by trains...trams and walking is the best moe of transportation. However if you plan to visit the Swaroski museum a car is ideal. It takes about an hour to reach there and is a must visit!

  • Arlberg Pass-Strasse

    For many centuries the Arlberg Pass-Strasse was the only connection between Tirol and Vorarlberg and especially in wintertime it was quite hard to get over this passroad. That is why they made the Arlberg Tunnel some decades ago, BUT when you have some sparetime and want to enjoy the great landscapes up there it really makes sense to drive that...

    All cars that have a tonnage / maximum allowed weight of less then 3500kg driving on the highways through Austria have to buy a so-called "Vignette" and stick it on the windscreen. There are stickers available for 10 days, 2 months and the whole year.You may find machines like the one on my picture at many borders of Austria.It is not enough to buy...

  • The Brenner - Passroad

    The Brenner-pass is one of the most frequented roads and highways in Europe, because it is the easiest and fastest road across the Alps in that area between Innsbruck and Italy.Be prepared for a lot of trafic, especially plenty of trucks, except at the weekends, when only a few trucks with special permission are allowed to go.For the Brenner you...

  • by airplane to Tirol

    Innsbruck has the only airport in Tirol and it is just a drive of a few minutes to the citycentre of innsbruck. Other airports in a distance of about 2-3 hours by taxi or train are Munich and Salzburg. Innsbruck is quite a small city and the airport of Innsbruck is really close to the centre of town. That way you will not have to pay a lot of money...

When arriving by train in Innsbruck Hauptbahnhof it is quite easy to walk to the very centre of town and even the famous "Goldenes Dachl" is within a walk of just 15-20 minues.Innsbruck is quite small and when you leave the station you simply go straight on and will get to...

  • motorhomes >3500kg need a GO-box !!

    This is an important message for all owners of vehicles & motorhomes with more than 3,5 tons :The Autobahn-Vignette is NOT enough for you, you need the same kind of GO-Box, as the large trucks and buses need them !!The system is simple, BUT also quite expensive : You buy a box, put it inside the car and at several places you will be registered...

  • Arlberg Strassentunnel

    The Arlberg Strassentunnel between Tirol and Vorarlberg is one of the longest tunnels through the alps with a total length of 13.972 meters and it is a very good alternative for cars to pass by the Arlberg and avoid all of the problems of driving over the snowy pass-road. In summertime it does not make sense in my opinion, it is even quite...

Thanks to the technical development, for a few decades, the mountain has been accessible to everyone. The first installations of transport to cables were built at the end of the 19th century. From this beginning to the funitels, the...

    By air you can enter Austria best at Vienna International Airport, but that is again rather far from the most impressive alpine part of Austria. For that you best enter at Innsbruck airport.By train you can reach many larger towns, but by car you can almost reach any village. In wintertime it is an obligation to have snowchains with you and believe...
