Events in Innsbruck

The New Year will once again be celebrated in Innsbruck with the traditional New Year’s Eve in the Mountains celebration, which includes several exciting attractions for the whole family. From 29 December to 06 January, the façades of five well-known buildings in the Tyrolean capital will be transformed into the backdrop for fantastic 3D projection mapping displays featuring fascinating images and sounds. On 30 December, children can enjoy the run-up to New Year’s Eve at the colourful Children’s New Year’s Eve event in the historic old town, which features great games, craft stands, a puppet show and a hands-on circus area with real acrobats. And on 31 December, you can celebrate the end of the year with a New Year’s Eve run through the city centre, live music in front of the Imperial Palace, an impressive fireworks display up at the Seegrube and finally New Year’s Eve clubbing at the Dogana.

"Once around the world" in Innsbruck's Imperial Gardens

LUMAGICA Innsbruck, the park of lights in Innsbruck's Hofgarten, will take its visitors on a "Once around the world" this winter. From 18 November 2022 to 29 January 2023, you will encounter all kinds of special light sculptures inspired by the five continents of the earth on the approximately 1-kilometre-long circular path: from the illuminated New York Statue of Liberty to colourful camels, monkeys and penguins.

Different opening hours

during Christmas and New Year

Everything is a little different in Innsbruck during the Christmas season. Not all of the restaurants and museums are open as usual. Some close for a few days, or at least a little earlier than normal: because the staff deserve a relaxing Christmas with their loved ones too. However, you can, of course, still enjoy a delicious meal and lots of fun activities during this time. Here we'll tell you where.
