9. Discover art & culture in Innsbruck
The diversity of art and culture brings beautiful colours, sounds and sights to the Tyrolean capital. Innsbruck has a museum for just about every field of interest: Archaeological Museum, Audiovserum (Science Museum), Radio Museum, Ambras Castle, City Museum, Taxispalais (Art Hall), Folk Art Museum and many more. Especially rainy days are perfect for a museum visit.
Architecture fans will love to discover Innsbruck because the city has numerous historic buildings and masterpieces of modern architecture. A tour of the old town will take you to the Golden Roof, Leopold’s Fountain, Helbling House, the old Landhaus, Anna’s Column and the Imperial Palace. Keep your eyes open during your walk because there are also many places with public art, where street artists decorate selected facades and walls with graffiti.
If you have a little bookworm in you, you will feel especially at home in Innsbruck’s public library, the “Wagner’sche” bookstore (including a cute café) or the Tyrolia bookstore. Take some time to wander through the hundreds of shelves with books from all genres and find your next favourite book. In addition, poetry slams are always held in these locations, where people recite their poetic texts.
Innsbruck is also a regular venue for various music festivals, such as the New Orleans Jazz Festival or the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music. The Tyrolean Regional Theatre treats its guests to musical theatre, drama and dance. There are also many small theatres that offer a diverse and exciting program. Let yourself be carried away into another world in one evening!
