What is that all about?

Greeters are friends in Innsbruck who you haven’t met yet.

Imagine you visit a foreign town and you have the opportunity to meet with locals on a non-touristic basis without any business interest at all.

Innsbruck Greeters welcome visitors to the city and take them on a personal walk through different areas of town or into the surroundings. Completely free, no charge, no tips.

We share with you the places we like and tell stories about how it is to live in Innsbruck and Tyrol.
