Tourist tips

Innsbruck Card
If you plan on visiting numerous sites within the city, it is worth buying an Innsbruck Card, which gives you free admission to all museums and visitor attractions. The price of the card depends on the length of time you purchase: 24 hours, 48 hours or 72 hours.

Tipping
As in other European cities, a service charge and tax is included in the bill. If you want to tip more, it’s routine to round up your meal bills.

Olympic Heritage
Having hosted the winter Olympics twice, Innsbruck has a variety of different Olympic sites visitors can explore. For amateur athletes looking for a hair-raising thrill, the bobsleigh and skeleton track is a must-see (and ride!). The track is open all-year round, for those daring enough to race down the icy slide. The tower at the top of the Bergisel Ski Jump is also a great place to get your adrenaline flowing and watch ski-jumpers practice the art.

Driving tips

Winter driving
Snow tyres are mandatory from November to mid-April. Keep in mind that heavy snowfall can temporarily close highways or mountain passes, so keep up to date with weather forecasts.

Tolls
A vignette sticker is required to drive on Austria’s highways. They can be purchased at petrol stations and post offices if your rental company doesn’t provide you with one.

Parking
Parking is expensive in Innsbruck, as it is in most major European cities. There is a mix of street parking and car parks within the city, as well as park and rides, which are helpful for reaching Innsbruck car-free area.

Mandatory items
You are required to carry a reflective safety vest in your car at all times. Check whether your rental company supplies a vest.
