Innsbruck, Austria: Destination of the week

Innsbruck, Austria: Destination of the week

Cable cars and funicular rails make it convenient to explore the mountainsides above the city and take in some photo-worthy vistas. The Innsbruck Nordkettenbahnen , a cable car system, begins in Innsbruck and takes a mere 20 minutes to reach the high mountain landscapes that tower above the city. From here, visitors can hike or simply stop to take in the sights. Of course, it isn't necessary to head into the high mountains to take a hike. Old Innsbruck is a popular draw and is quite walk-able. Herzog-Friedrich-Straße is the old town's main pedestrian walkway. The modern urban core of the city is within walking distance of this historic neighborhood. It is centered around Sparkassenplatz. Cafes and restaurants abound, and concerts and weekly farmers and crafts markets make this one of the more colorful and event-filled districts of Innsbruck.
