Best places to see in Austria

Getreidegasse
Shopping Areas
Take a trip down memory lane. This shopping street next to the river has been a road for a thousand years. Today, it’s lined with shops – “trachten” boutiques (for traditional Austrian costumes), general fashion, antiques and souvenir shops that sell Mozart and “Sound of Music” memorabilia. Dart down the vaulted passageways to see courtyards, arcades and flower arrangements.
Accommodations near Getreidegasse
New Hungerburgbahn
Landmarks
All aboard the Hungerburgbahn! This funicular train is more than your average ski lift. It chugs up and down the mountainside, taking adrenaline-seeking skiers up to Seegrube’s world-class pistes. The funicular passes through four futuristic stations, each with globular curves that create a striking contrast against the jagged mountaintops.
Accommodations near New Hungerburgbahn
Prämonstratenser Monastery Wilten
Landmarks
A musical monastery. This abbey’s church regularly echoes with heavenly voices in harmony. It’s the HQ of Wiltener Sängerknaben, a world-famous boys’ choir. It’s quite the setting for a sing-song – the apse is a riot of Baroque flourishes, with a magnificent column-bound altar. Swing by for a service to get the full ethereal hit of awesome architecture and mesmerising music.
Accommodations near Prämonstratenser Monastery Wilten
Maria Theresien Street
Shopping Areas
All walks of Innsbruck life converge on Maria Theresien Street. The town’s main thoroughfare is one of Tyrol’s most sumptuous streets – and a natural meeting point for the city’s residents. Teens congregate to gossip and giggle at the steps of the Annasäule column, shopaholics eye up window displays, and be-suited office workers chat over post-work pints.
Accommodations near Maria Theresien Street
Belvedere Palace
Landmarks
This beautiful complex was Prince Eugene of Savoy's (1663-1736) summer residence and includes an impressive orangery, stables and a park, lovingly landscaped in baroque style. Visitors flock to the world’s largest Klimt collection including "The Kiss," an Art Nouveau masterpiece.
Accommodations near Belvedere Palace
Hofburg Museum Complex
Landmarks
A visit to Hofburg will bring you closer to the enigmatic personality of Empress Elizabeth ("Sisi"). Take a walk through her private quarters at the Imperial Apartments, learn more about her public and private lives at the Sisi Museum, and admire the exhibition of the Habsburgs' impressive imperial silver collection.
