We are planning to reach Innsbruck from St. Moritz in the first week of October. From there we (me and my husband) plan to rent a car and drive around Austria. We have 8 full days and would like to start from Innsbruck and fly out of Vienna. Could you please suggest some places where we should definitely stop on our way and places we can stay overnight during our trip. We would like to see a little bit of everything (nature, architecture and anything else Austria is famous for).
Also needed some advice on how to rent a car (pre book it online/directly take from there) and would we require an international driving license. (We come from india).
I am in Innsbruck on 26th May and plan to hire a vehicle to explore the city for 7 to 8 hours. What are my options on picturesque routes?
Is this mall far from Ambras castle? I mean; could I go from this mall to the castle by foot in 10 - 15 minutes?
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Europe including the wonderful areas of Innsbruck, Munich, Zurick and Zermatt. He bought a Tyrolian style hat and we enjoyed collecting pins from each place we visited. However, much to our horror, he left his hat at Security at the Rome Airport. We are trying to reconstruct his pin collection, but I have not had any luck finding a shop selling pins online. Does anyone have any suggestion? Thanks for your help, Maureen

Hi, I have plan to visit innsbruck and Salzburg at the 1st of may, is it still snowy there? Fall in love with Innsbruck pictures with snowy mountain as background, can I see that on early may? And also at the nordkette? ( not for skiing, just scenery and leisure) My plan is 2 days for each city, is it enough for scenery-theme visit? Any recommendation about must-do/visit and travel tips at those cities? My route is Paris-Innsbruck-Salzburg and maybe Prague or munich or Vienna to catch our flight back. Thanks a lot!
Hi, I will be in Germany (Berlin primarily) then traveling the stubai glacier to snowboard, then to Innsbruck. I have a week or more to go wherever from there. I need some itinerary recommendations. I've never been to Europe before. I would like to see Venice but I'm not sure if there is anywhere worth staying for a day or two in between. I would be willing to forego Italy if I had some good suggestions for places within a few hours from Innsbruck. Vienna? Zurich? Munich? Help!
Is it better to fly into munich or frankfurt in the middle of January and then drive to innsbruck or fly to innsbruck? Wondering what the roads are like at that time of year and if it is better to rent a car in munich or frankfurt?
Hi, I booked a car online for December from Buchbinder in Austria. I read some bad reports about Buchbinder in Austria and espically the one in Vienna. I would appreciate some input from anyone in Austria or that used them before and if I should cancel and rent from someone else. Thank you very much.
I realize that it may be a silly question, but I was considering a day trip to Bressanone from Innsbruck in early November. I am assuming the trains will not be snowed in at this early date, but I just want to check. I know weather can be unpredictable, but in general, do you forsee any problems?
Hi, I'm travelling to Vienna and Innsbruck (but mainly Innsbruck) in December (20th - 27th). Hope 1 of the shopping and travel guru's can help me - I am looking for a place that is not too expensive where I can buy ski clothing from - either in Vienna or Innsbruck will do. And regarding the skiing - must I book in advance or can I just buy a daypass when I'm there? What is the cost? Must I book my ski's online?

I am looking for advise on accomodation in this city for 3 days in Dec 2011. I am travelling with my wife and two teenage children and am looking for centrally located safe apartments/hotels. Our budget is approx 120-150 Euro per night. Hoping to get some ideas of places people have stayed at themselves, and can recommend. Thank you all.
While we are traveling from Munich to Venice, we are looking for some ideas. My husband and I would like to rent road bikes for 1 day, and tour a winery along the way. These separate events could take place in any city on our journey. Any ideas?
My hubby and I are planning to travel from Munich to Innesbruck in October 2011 but we are unable to find any information on how to get there by train via a scenic route. Has anyone travelled this route by train - any information will be appreciated. We will be staying at the Cityhotel Schwarzer Bar - has anyone had any bad experiences with their service and is it a nice hotel? Last but very important question - what is the possibility of it snowing in October? If so, are there horse drawn carriages or sleighs available? Maybe someone can direct us to a website that can answer all our questions but would prefer comments from travellers.
We will be staying in Axams just outside Innsbruck for the week beginning April 23 which includes Easter. Does anyone know of a protestant church we could attend Sunday or even a sunrise service? Also, are there any special activities we should "not miss' in the area during Easter time. Thank you in advance for any information.
We're starting our 22 days trip next March 28 from Rome, Venice and then the first idea is go to Innsbruck and from there take the Romantic-Route, then Dresden, Prague , Amsterdan and Paris. Concerning the three last ones, we're don't have may doubts but we do have some after leaving Venice. We'd like to know things like: -Is it worthwhile to spend time in Innsbruck or is there another option in Austria on the way to the Romantic Route. If it's ok to go there how long we would need there? - We're intending to stop in Dinkelsbühl, Fussen, Rothenburg and Würzburg, is it full 4 days enough? -What about Dresden? How long would we take there? - We're thinking about going by car from Innsbruk (if it's the case. Is it ease to travel, I mean follow the road signs etc.. even if we don't speak German? - and finally, is it it necessary to have the international licence driving to rent a car and to drive in Italy, Germany and Check Republique? I'd really appreciate your hints. Thanks Sônia

Hello I am a tourist living in Innsbruck for 1 month. I live in a house with no wifi so the only way for me to get internet is USB modem stick. My friends gave me A1 Stick but the connection on this provider totally sucks. I hardly open any emails and it disconnects all the time. Since I am a tourist I cant buy any internet service myself here. If you have usb internet stick with good internet from some other provider (not A1) please give it to me for rental for 1 month! I will pay all the costs + additional money for you. mike
Hi all, my wife and I are planning a trip to Innsbruck around the middle of December, the 15th or thereabouts. Possibly a dumb question :0) , but how's the weather, generally, around that time of year. Neither of us are into skiing but I am an amateur photographer and the chance of getting pics of some lovely snow-capped mountains and countryside would be ideal. Obviously, weather is variable from year to year but, roughly, what time of year do the above conditions start to arrive to Innsbruck. Thanks for any help.
Hi There, My boyfriend and I arrive in Innsbruck on December 23rd and depart on the 27th. We are staying at the Goldener Adler Hotel in the old histric part of Innsbruck. The main thing we are trying to work out is where to have Christmas dinner. 3 years ago when we were in Whistler for Christmas we booked dinner at an alpine resort that was over priced, the food and customer service were terrible and we were rushed in and out as quickly as they could get us in out out due to bookings throughout the entire evening. So we are not wanting another experience like this. In Austria, is Christmas celebrated on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? Is there a possibility of celebrating christmas dinner at one of the ski resorts on one of the mountains? If so are the ski resorts easily accessable in the evenings? Can we ski on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day? And last question where can we have a lovely christmas dinner that is not over priced whether it be on a ski mountain or in Innsbruck? Lisa
Hi, This august (26th), we'll be staying at the Austrotel Hotel in Innsbruck during a (very) short visit while going on a tour from Heidelberg to Venice. It seems that this hotel is somewhat apart from the city centre. How can I visit the Old Town from the Austrotel? Is there any public transport that covers the route? What places would you suggest that we could see and/or visit? Thanks in advance, Luis Rodriguez Caracas, Venezuela
I will be renting a car for 1 week (in Venna, after touring the city) to travel around the Salzburg area and points between Vienna and Salzburg. My initial draft itinerary has a free day, after filling it up with things I'd like to see. I now have 4 options: (1) Fill it up with more "off the beaten track" stuff. (2) Do what I planned at a more leisurely pace. (3) Go to Innsbruck for a day. (4) Squeeze everything else I want to see into one less day (if possible), and leave 2 days for a trip to Innsbruck and environs. I must admit that this option is the least attractive to me, as it would "rush" the rest of our trip, and I would only consider doing it if there are exceptional things to see between Salzburg and Innsbruck. From what I have seen and read, there isn't something really *unique* between the Salzburg area (in which I include Berchtesgaden, Germany) and Innsbruck, relative to what I am planning on visiting between Salzburg and Vienna (please let me know if you think otherwise). Therefore, if I go to Innsbruck, it will be only to visit that city and no sites along the way. The trip would be about 190 km each way (~2.5 hours). Since we are 2 drivers, that shouldn't be a problem. If we get an early start, we should be in Innsbruck by 10:30-11:00am. This would give us about 6-7 hours in Innsbruck, assuming tourist sites tend to close between 5 and 6pm, as in the rest of Austria. I assume that within this time frame we should be able to cover the highlights of what there is to see in the city. Which option do you think I should go for, and why? Thanks.
