3 Top Attractions to Visit in Innsbruck

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 112

When you are arranging your Innsbruck airport transfers, you may want to know a bit more about some of the things that there are to see and do in the city whilst you are there.

There are many attractions apart from the ski resorts for which the region is known, and choosing the ones that you want to see can actually be quite difficult, especially if your time in the city is limited. Here, then, are three of the top attractions you may want to put on your list of things to visit whilst you are in the city.

1. The Hofgarten

When you are arranging your Innsbruck airport transfers, one of the things that you might want to make time to visit is the Hofgarten. This is a park in Innsbruck, designated protected, and it is a very relaxing and peaceful place to spend some time. It is located near to the Old Town, and in total there are about 25 acres to explore. One of the amazing things about this park is that it has been here for six centuries, making it one of the most important features of the city.

Over that time it has undergone a number of stylistic changes, but it is now in an English style. This was a change first conceived of by Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell, although the changes were not made until a few decades later. In the Hofgarten you will find lots of trees, plants, a play area for children, a restaurant and more, making it an excellent way to pass a few hours during your time here.

2. The Bergisel

Another place you might want to consider visiting when you are organising your Innsbruck airport transfers is the Bergisel. This is a high hill situated south of the city, and it is historically important because it was the setting of the Battles of Bergisel in 1809. The Bergisel was also the setting for the ski jumping in the 1964 Winter Olympics and was also used during the games in 1976, although a newer ramp was then built in 2003.

3. Ambras Castle

Yet another top attraction of this beautiful region is Ambras Castle, located above the city in the hills. It used to be a residence of Archduke Ferdinand II during the 16th century, and it is historically and culturally important to the city. When you visit you will find a number of collections of art and armour, as well as some impressive architecture.

When you start first start planning your holiday to Austria, and your Innsbruck airport transfers, make sure you start to think about the best places you can visit during your time in the city. It is a fascinating city to discover full of art, culture and history and you will have no trouble filling your time - but it pays to have a plan.
