Soaring mountains, jagged rock pillars, alpine cows with bells around their neck, a picture-perfect old town. Innsbruck is Austria as you dream it to be and is heaven on Earth for lovers of the outdoors.

Before you head for the hills, it’s worth spending some time in the city itself; there really is a lot to see here. Start in the old town – Aldstadt – and check out the beautiful Gothic Hofkirche, the grand relic of the Hapsburg empire that is Hofburg palace, and the enormous castle of Schloss Ambras.

Bergisel is the gravity-defying glass-and-steel structure that towers above the town. It’s a ski jump on which athletes train during the summer months. Thankfully you don’t have to launch yourself off it for the chance to see the amazing views it affords. Take the funicular to the top observation deck, or if you’re feeling energetic you can take the 455 stairs up.

Drawing in the adventure sports crowds all seasons of the year – from skiing in winter to mountain biking and canyoning in the summer – Innsbruck has a holiday vibe to it. It also has the bars and nightlife to match. If you didn’t manage to spot the alpine wildlife of eagles, ibex or chamois during your hikes in the mountains, head to the Alpenzoo where you’re guaranteed a glimpse.
