Enjoy a stress-free journey to the Christmas markets in Innsbruck
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, especially when you experience it at the festive Christmas markets in Innsbruck. With our tips, your visit is sure to be the stress-free highlight of your Advent period.
In the run-up to Christmas, the roads are often full and the streets are packed with pedestrians on gift-buying missions or simply enjoying a pre-Christmas stroll through the city. Parking spaces are hard to find, which is why we recommend using the Park & Ride facilities located outside of the city centre and taking the convenient buses and trams into the heart of the city. You can find P&R facilities by Tivoli Stadium at Olympia World Innsbruck.
Do you want to combine your bus journey with a sightseeing tour? If so, the Sightseer hop-on hop-off bus is the ideal option for you. The bus travels to all of Innsbruck's most important sights and attractions and features an audio guide full of interesting information.
Are you planning on visiting the Christmas market at Bergisel on the outskirts of the city? If so, we recommend hopping on the Sightseer or taking the tram (line 1 or STB). Or do you want to head up to the Hungerburg district for a Christmas market with views of the city? The Hungerburg is a popular location with limited parking so it's best to travel by bus (bus J) or use the Hungerburgbahn funicular.
