A weekend break in... Innsbruck

Surrounded by the craggy peaks of the Austrian Alps, Innsbruck scores both as an Alpine activity centre and as a showcase for Habsburg Empire heritage

Eine Reisereportage The Telegraph

This three-day weekend itinerary takes in the culture and heritage of Innsbruck, and also some wonderful mountain vistas. In this compact city, most attractions and restaurants are minutes apart on foot. Wear sensible shoes for the cobbled streets and the foray up the mountains. Architecturally, expect a mix of the past and present. Eating out, the mix is the same: Tyrolean classics as well as modern Austrian dishes. As for the watering holes, they include fun spots where you can mingle with locals. And there is the constant temptation of coffee and cake.
