Personal Memories and Impressions Tips (14)

Hofgarten.

Favorite thing This park was originally founded as a hunting ground. Later it was declared a public garden. There are various plants and a small lake here. At one of the entrances of the park there is a cafe-restaurant.

The Hofgarten is open from 9 a. m. to sunset. It is located very near the Imperial Palace.

Walking the streets

Favorite thing Although we did not get to spend much time in Innsbruck and it was raining, we did get to see some beautiful buildings and do some shopping in the local market.

Everyone we met was just so nice and helpful with directions to the local sites and shopping..

Fondest memory Be sure to go to the old center of town and see the market, the congress and the historic buildings found here.

The walking street is a nice area to just poke around in the shops there and (if ya know me) a nice place to sit and have coffee and watch the world go by.

Bergisel Skijumping hill

Favorite thing 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.

Fondest memory 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....

Being yourself in the nature

Favorite thing First of all, hiking in the mountains in summer. During summer the local tourist office organize hikes for free with bus and guides. No matter you go there alone or with your loved one, you will have great fun in the mountains

Fondest memory How did I passed my day? starting with a big breakfast; picking lunch (2 panini and a bottle of water) from an Italian lady's shop close to the university; hiking during the day; sauna and refresh in cold air on the balcone of the hotel health center; big dinner in my hotel restaurant, where I could have anything I saw on or out of the manu, the nice waiters used to prepare a dish of fruit for me to take to my hotel room, and some of the fruit would be next day's lunch :) some tv before falling asleep - usually it's not difficult :)

Magical scenery!

Favorite thing The mountains were still covered in snow as were many of the roads. It also snowed quite a bit while we were there. But it was really beautiful

Innsbruck is the capital of the Tyrol in western Austria, with a population of about 120,000. It is located in the eastern alps and is primarily a winter sports resort which also hosted the Winter Olympics in 1964 and 1976.

The bridge over the River Inn, which gives the city its name made Innsbruck an important point on the trade routes to Germany from Italy and Switzerland.

I remember this bridge so vividly, it was very snowy and icy and crossing it we had to take great care not to land on our bottoms!

Our hotel was situated on the quieter side of the bridge, but we had to cross here in the evenings to get a little light refreshment :) at one or many of the bars! A group of us would go out in the evenings to sample the local brew (more of an exercise than enjoyment) and returning to our hotel we all had to hang onto each other to cross this bridge, each trying to hold up the other! :))

Fondest memory As this holiday was many years ago when my mum was alive, my fondest memory is of course being with her, she was such a 'nutcase' (and I mean that in the nicest sense). She drew people to her, young and old alike and it was such a happy holiday.

Travelling in Innsbruck

Favorite thing The ease of travelling in and out of the city - train and bus journeys are well co-ordinated and can be paid for with one inclusive ticket.

Fondest memory Visiting Schloss Ambrass just outside of the city - you can spend hours and hours just looking around at the artefacts and artwork. Also visiting Munding's the best place for ice cream!!!!

Favorite thing

Well, visit Innsbruck!

It's got all that quaintness in the historic centre, huge mountains as a shield, and a university which surely helps keeping up its spirits. I can easily imagine I could live there for a while.

Fondest memory The Midsummer night last Saturday (23 June) when a chain of bonfires was lit on mountain tops all around the city. They didn't make a perfect ring as planned, but it still looked impressive. The whole city was out in the Old Town drinking, singing and celebrating. I really liked the atmosphere.

Favorite thing Have lunch or dinner on the patio of a great Italian restaurant(do not remember the name). It is right on the river,by the bridge, and the view across the Inn is fabulous.Walk Maria-Theresa Strasse to the square and you can not miss the Goldenes Dach (golden roof) built by Emporer Maxmilian in 1494.

Fondest memory Strolling the streets on a Sunday afternoon, having lunch and looking across the river at the beautiful old hotels and other buildings with the Alps as a backdrop! Wonderful!!
