The days are getting longer, and the sun is getting warmer. Still, we are not ready to let winter go completely and so, once more, we will tell you a little more about the ski areas around Innsbruck. Luckily, despite the sun, it is very cold most of the times so the slopes are still in great conditions. Grab your skis, snowboards, or whatever you use to enjoy the beautiful mountains and let’s start with all the fun in the white powder.Read More
We are so glad that you liked our Beginner’s Guide to Innsbruck. We realized, however, that there’s still so much more we haven’t mentioned, and, before going into more details and showing you some of the secret hidden gems in the city, there are still some more classic tourist attractions, which are equally as beautiful, that we have to mention.

Visiting Innsbruck during Christmas market season is definitely a must, so if you ever have the chance to do so, don’t miss out! Especially when there’s snow, you definitely get into a festive mood.

The Art and Design market takes place aprox. Twice a year in Innsbruck, but we have never been there before. This time it visited Innsbruck on the first weekend of November (3.-4. November 2018) and we went there on Saturday. The location, the VAZ Hafen, is located on the outskirts of Innsbruck, but is easily reached by bus or even by foot, like we did.
We definitely recommend going there early, as it gets really packed around lunchtime and the afternoon. If you are looking for a place to save money and buy cheap goods, you are definitely in the wrong place, but if you are looking for cool handcrafted and sustainable stuff, this is definitely the place to be. Also it is great to get in touch with the sellers, which most of the time are also the producers of the goods you are looking at.Read More

We want to start this series by talking about the most known and famous sights of Innsbruck. So, let’s call this one the Beginner Guide.Read More
