Things to Do in Innsbruck
You’ll be pleased to know that there’s much more to Innsbruck than just the historic center. Art and history fans should head to the Tyrol Panorama, an incredible 360-degree painting that depicts the Battle of Bergisel, situated where the battle actually took place. Near here is the Bergisel ski jump. The views are spectacular, but the real treat is watching athletes ski down a def-defying 90m slope to glide elegantly onto the snow below. Innsbruck is surrounded by stunning mountainous scenery, and it has a number of cable cars and funicular railways to try. Highly recommended are the Innsbrucker Nordkette and Hungerburg Funicular. The Nordkette cable car takes 20 minutes and supplies jaw-dropping views. Best of all, at the top is the beautiful Nordkette national park, ready for you to explore.
