|About these ratings|
Acting as the triumphant entrance into the medieval Innsbruck, Maria Theresien-Strasse funnels visitors through a long procession of shops and restaurants. The avenue, though historic, has now become a bit overrun with tourists snapping photos of every gorgeous building they see (which are also quite numerous). The tourists, architecture, shops and restaurants also translates to inflated prices, so beware of the small price tags on objects and price-less menus at cafes.
When you're in need of a stroll, you can follow Maria-Theresien-Strasse through Old Town (or the Altstadt) to the Golden Roof. The area is safe during the day and night, but watch your pockets in crowded spots.
