Rudi was an excellent greeter and really made us appreciate the sites, neighborhoods, and history of Innsbruck. We walked through several important landmarks, and he told us some interesting stories you really could have only gotten from a local!
He was very helpful when it came to local recommendations for places to eat, drink, and visit.
This was our first greeters tour, and we really loved having an intimate introduction to a new city. Would highly recommend this experience! Thank you, Rudi!
We want to tell you what a great time we had in Austria!
We hiked the Zirbenweg with many other people, as expected. And it was beautiful. As we were going to board the gondola to get to the top, Silvie, a resident of Innsbruck, invited us to join her and we had a wonderful but brief conversation. She could be a greeter! We hiked the Goetheweg as well. The heat and sun were a bit much but the views were spectacular.
We took the bus into Old Innsbruck and went to the Tribaun where 9 out of 10 customers were Americans! It was fun to try different beers.
But extra thanks go to Dagmar who recommended Gasthaus Isserwirt in Lans. We ate in their beautiful garden. Jim had Schnitzel and Susan had one of the best meals of her life… no idea what it was called on the menu but I took a risk on a fish dish… seared char I think with slivers of bacon and straw mushrooms, little polenta cakes and warm slightly picked cucumber slices. Amazing.
We are very glad we stayed in Igls. Innsbruck was a little too busy (the little we saw of it). Yet who wouldn’t want to be here! We are lucky. And we are so very appreciative of the time you gave us. It was a special day.
I had a wonderful experience with my Innsbruck greeter Silvia. She took me on a gentle hike in a beautiful pine forest only 10 minutes from Central Innsbruck. She brought her dog which was a treat because I love dogs. We stopped for a cold drink at a lovely restaurant with a stunning view of the mountains. We have some similar interests beyond hiking and dogs, so our conversation was very enjoyable and engaging. Unfortunately I didn’t think of taking photos.
Thank you very much for a wonderful afternoon experience in a part of Innsbruck I otherwise would not have visited.
We had a great experience with Rudi showing us some of his favorite places in Innsbruck! He was able to give us a glimpse into the every day life of a person living in Innsbruck. He gave us a great balance on historical information, great places to visit and an insight of his life in Austria.

We walked through the market and parts of the Old Town across the river and enjoyed our conversation about Innsbruck and Rudi’s experience of living there as well as where he grew up outside of Innsbruck. Had a wonderful jam filled pastry at a bakery in an area where few if any tourists go. Rudi made suggestions of other things for us to do in our short time in Innsbruck which we did like the train to funicular and trip to top of mountain. So absolutely terrific experience.
