The capital of Tyrol is situated in the alps and can only be described as picturesque. No matter if summer or winter, there is always something great to do. Stroll around the old town and enjoy an afternoon in one of the amazing cafés. In our travel guide you will find great things to do in Innsbruck.
1. Hidden Gem Innsbruck: Haepinest
This cute café is a must when you visit Innsbruck. A feel – good atmosphere, excellent coffee and delicious food. The owner of Haepinest describes their cafe as a “third-wave café”, which means putting as much focus on the buying and drinking experience of coffee as on the brew itself as well as putting a new premium on aesthetics while touting higher quality and better preparations. They also offer everything your breakfast heart is craving for. How about delicious granola with yoghurt, figs, walnuts and seasonal compote? We are not only in love with Haepinest because of the menu, but also because of its interior design. A great mixture of scandinavian and vintage. It really feels like a big and cozy living room. During summer there is also outdoor seating available.

2. Hidden Gem Innsbruck: Umbrügger Alm
This might be one of the most modern alms you have ever been to. At the Umbrüggler Alm in the Karwendelgebirge everything is a bit different and not traditional at all. The interior is filled with wood, but not in the classic alpine style, more light decor. Umbrüggler Alm captivates the visitor with its avant-garde, yet cosy design. An open fireplace and comfortable seating ensure a pleasant stay. Enjoy the great panoramic view while enjoying your Tyrolean dish with a modern twist. Several paths lead from Innsbruck to Umbrüggler Alm, for hiking and mountain biking. The easiest way to get there is to start from Hungeburger.
