Known as the jewel of the alps for a reason! This has become one of my favourite cities over the last 5 years, a place I’m seriously considering moving too.
Innsbruck is the capital City of Tyiol in western Austria. Even the flight in is something to behold as you weave in in via the awe-inspiring mountain peaks.
It’s a picture book location, stunning architecture, a grand palace, cathedral, Olympic ski jump and bobsleigh run all within touching instance of superb outdoors activities – skiing through the winter turns into delightful mountain biking and hiking opportunities during Spring and Summer.
The modern funicular and cable car provide a fun way of enjoying the norkette mountain range for some truly spectacular views.
A place that personifies charm – I’ve been numerous times and yet it never feels over crowded.
Transport is so efficient – a bus system regularly works it s way aaround Innsbruck and the surrounding areas meaning you can stay in the centre and still be at the bottom of a ski lift within twenty minutes – the best of both worlds.
Hotel Nala is a boutique hotel with gorgeous views over Innsbruck.
It’s in a perfect location, quiet and calm reflected by it’s tranquil park and extensive terrace – an idyllic spot with inspiring views of the surrounding mountains. Being a mere 10 min walk from the city centre, quicker by tram/bus but it’s simply worth walking though these beautiful streets.
Every room in the hotel is a unique design with it’s clever team reflecting art in every part of the hotel.
I’ve stayed twice in the “Loft Southside” a junior suite.The South is where the sun shines into your room! It’s got an arty but comfortable feel with and benefits from a balcony with mountain views – you can see the Olympic ski jump from here as well.
The bar and restaurant are well worth a visit providing a good range of options.
