A stroll through different residential areas of Innsbruck, from workers’ class quarters to the mansion district. Along the way we might also pass by so called South Tyrolean settlements, stemming from the relocation of 75.000 people during World War II. Maybe we get a chance to take a sneak peak into one of the courtyards.
The oldest part of town
This is not the old town, but a much older part of Innsbruck. We walk through the northern areas, St. Nikolaus, Hötting and Mariahilf, which still are like a village in the middle of the city. Take a look at the backside of that famous panorama and find out how close to the mountain the city is located.
The old town
Many greet requests ask for a tour through the old town. However, neither are Innsbruck greeters professional tourist guides nor are the greets a free replacement for the classic guided tours. A greet’s purpose is to provide the opportunity for personal encounters with locals and to get to know the place you’re visiting in a rather intimate way. We don’t talk about historic dates.
Depending on which route we’re walking, in many cases we’ll have the opportunity to visit the old town or other sights and we’ll of course show you where to take that one picture every tourist ought to take before she leaves town.
If you are interested in a classic tour through the old town and to the main sights of Innsbruck we recommend you check out the various professional offers. You’ll find them on the web and via the tourist office’s website.
