      by Marnie2013 Online Now Dec 11, 2013 at 9:27 AM

      I was in Innsbruck 9 weeks ago (Oct. 2013) and a guide took our group into a small courtyard in the Olde Town section of Innsbruck. There were carved dark wood railings on at least 3 sides going up 3 or 4 floors. It was striking against the light colored walls. There was a small fountain against one wall. I can't recall what she said the building once was. Was it an early school or hospital? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Innsbruck was so lovely and charming to visit. I hope to return and spend more time exploring its historic treasures.

    • Nice cheap places to eat and drink in Innsbruck?

      by GenDuv13 Online Now Aug 26, 2013 at 4:53 PM

      My husband and I are planning to spend a week in Innsbruck in early October. We've provisionally booked a hotel in the old town, and are looking forward to a fairly quiet holiday. I picked Innsbruck because it seems to offer a bit of everything - a smallish town to stroll around, lovely buildings to look at, amazing scenery, and plenty of places within reach for day trips - and we're hoping it won't be too crowded with tourists at that time of year. But most of the budget hotels (or the ones near the old town that aren't already sold out, at least) didn't appear to have restaurant facilities, so we'll be eating out every night, but whenever I do a search for 'where to eat in Innsbruck' I just get a list of fancy restaurants which are recommended for their haute cuisine. We're not interested in international fine dining, or in trendy nightclubs and cocktail bars; we were hoping more for friendly pubs serving beer, wine and local food, but also a bit of variety in menus and prices. (We stayed in a port town in France last autumn and quickly found that every restaurant in the centre had exactly the same menu and the same high prices so it didn't matter where you ate!) We'd like to be able to eat out cheaply and have a few drinks without spending a fortune, but maybe splash out on something a bit fancier for 1 or 2 occasions. Anyone got any suggestions?

      Or is Innsbruck maybe not the place for us? I like a bit of culture, but have no intention of slogging around cramming in 'sights' as quickly as possible, I'd rather get to know the town and feel relaxed there; I also love scenery, but am not into strenuous exercise; and my husband's main interests are food and beer (in the absence of football, TV and the Xbox, LOL). We can still cancel the hotel, and haven't booked the flights yet, so we're not totally committed. I initially looked at Vienna and Salzburg, but they both seemed a bit 'highbrow' for us - we're certainly not planning to visit the opera or the symphony, or go to any balls! So are we likely to find enough relaxed and varied eateries and cafes in Innsbruck to suit our rather modest budget, or should we look elsewhere? Any suggestions gratefully welcomed!

      Explanation of train tickets

      by Maryimelda Online Now Aug 7, 2013 at 11:31 PM

      I have prebooked train tickets from Innsbrueck to Verona on 12 October. When I booked and paid for these tickets, I had to book two separate legs of the journey i.e. Innsbrueck to Brenner and Brenner to Verona. The tickets seem to be open as there are no departure times mentioned on either of them. They have only the date and the bar code thing. My questions are:

      1. Does this mean that I can travel at any time on that day?

      2. One option available on the timetable that would suit me very well is a direct journey from Innsbrueck to Verona on a Eurocity train. Would my two part tickets be valid for this journey? I did not make a choice to travel on two separate trains, it was just the way the bookings were set up on the Austrian Rail site (through which I made the bookings). I was given no choice.

      There are a number of European rail experts amongst you, so I am hoping for some advice here if at all possible. I know it is probably a dumb question but I'm not as young as I used to be, so bear with me please. Thanks in advance.

We have 8 full days and would like to start from Innsbruck and fly out of Vienna.

    • Souvenir hat pins

      by Mjpudd Online Now Aug 31, 2012 at 5:49 AM

      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?

      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?
