Culture in Innsbruck
Tyrol’s provincial capital Innsbruck combines nature, culture and customs. Spend a day admiring the old town with its historical buildings, take a stroll through the modern shopping centres and treat yourself to local delicacies in the many restaurants.
The sumptuous Ambras Castle is definitely worth a visit. A wide range of chambers, collections and the oldest museum in the world bear witness to Europe’s culture heritage. Famous modern buildings, such as the Bergisel Ski Jump and the House of Music concert hall adjacent to the Landestheater (Tyrolean State Theatre) stand in sharp contrast to the historical Innsbruck. The Alpine Zoo, at the foot of the Nordkette mountain range, is home to a select range of indigenous wildlife from the Alpine region.
In Wattens, you can immerse yourself in the glittering fantasy world in the Swarovski Crystal Worlds. Visitors are enchanted by the beauty of the contemporary art, exhibitions, musical highlights, workshops, play areas for children and the garden of the Giant.
