I fell in love with Innsbruck within minutes of stepping off the train. My jaw dropped when the spectacular and imposing Alps came into view as we walked towards our hotel.
The stunning Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings in the Old Town offer some insight into the diverse and prosperous history of the city.
We happened upon Innsbruck by chance. The stars must have aligned, so I wouldn’t miss out on such an incredible city. When planning our route from Munich to Verona, we noticed a train change in a city called Innsbruck. Since we would be stopping anyway, why not check another country off our list?
We managed to squeeze 2 nights in Innsbruck into our summer journey. Had I realized the love we would develop for the area, I would have allowed for more time.
