Innsbruck has a timeless reputation as a winter sports destination, and it’s easy to see why. Nestled in a valley of the Alps, the city is surrounded by picturesque mountains complete with ski slopes and funiculars, including one with stations designed by Zaha Hadid. Whether you’re here in the winter or the summer, you can have an active vacation in the mountains. In the town itself, you’ll find charming cobblestone streets, winding alleyways, quaint cafes and welcoming restaurants serving hearty Tyrolean cuisine. The mountains, a constant presence, form a dramatic backdrop.
Innsbruck is a unique destination that combines breathtaking natural scenery with a comfortable, small-town feel. There’s a mix of Imperial Austrian architecture and newer creations, so just strolling the streets offers a feast for the eyes. The restaurants here are also wonderful, with a variety of cuisines ranging from traditional to contemporary with a young edge thanks to the large student population. Innsbruck is a place where you can really unwind and enjoy your vacation at your own pace.
"JayWay was very helpful in organizing our trip to Eastern Europe and pulled everything together very quickly. It was great to have our transport and itinerary arranged ahead of time. We would definitely use JayWay in the future. "

"Our honeymoon was great and JayWay was there to assist us and make the trip stress free. Even when we were late showing up for the kayak excursion (thought it was an hour later), JayWay's local representative called and reminded us of the time, as well as arranged for the kayak operator to wait for us."
