Bergisel Ski Jump#4 in Best Things To Do in Innsbruck
The late architect Zaha Hadid – who is also responsible for the Hungerburg funicular station – redesigned this ski jump in 2002. Originally built in 1925, it was used in Olympic ski jumping competitions in 1964 and 1976. The tower is about 155 feet tall, and the stadium can hold 28,000 people. But you don't have to be an Olympic athlete to enjoy this attraction. Past visitors suggested traveling to the top of the jump to marvel at the surrounding views. There are also two restaurants at the top where you can enjoy a bite to eat with a side of stunning scenery. What's more, a visit to the ski jump is included with the Innsbruck Card.
According to past visitors, you can take a cable car to the top of the ski jump where the views are outstanding. Reviewers also recommended the cafe at the top, which they say offers great food and coffee.
The jump is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from November to May and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. June to October. During the winter, it's closed on Tuesdays. Tickets cost 10 euros (around $11) for adults without an Innsbruck Card. For more information, visit the official website.

#1 Maria-Theresien-Strasse (Maria Theresa Street)
One of Innsbruck's most famous streets, Maria Theresien Street is a glorious remnant of the city's baroque past, dating back 700 years. Now a pedestrian promenade, the street, which is located outside Old Town, is lined with palaces once owned by the city's aristocracy, as well as cafes, shops and landmarks like St. Anne's Column and the Triumphal Arch.
Recent visitors raved about the amazing views of the mountains seen from the street and recommended seeing the Christmas market set up on the street during the holidays. However, a few reviewers warned that the prices at the shops, cafes and restaurants that line the street are too high. For unobstructed photos, plan a morning visit.
