Best Things To Do in Innsbruck

Skiing is obviously the prime objective of most winter visitors. And with Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck, a combination of eight ski resorts, who can blame them? But even they will be distracted for a day or two by the other things to do in Innsbruck. While the shining Golden Roof lures travelers to the Old Town, nearby sites like the Hofburg and Maria-Theresa Strasse keep them there. If you're traveling with kids, you should enjoy the city vista from the Alpenzoo, the highest zoo in Europe, or the thrilling Bergisel Ski Jump.
