The party at the end of the year

Partying in the city, fireworks on the Nordkette: the perfect combination for a great New Year’s Eve celebration. Enjoy the festive atmosphere in the city during the day: stroll through the charming narrow streets, enjoy roasted chestnuts and pick up a good luck charm for your loved ones. Later in the day, you can enjoy varied events, a great party atmosphere and a new and impressive light and sound show by the River Inn. High up on the Nordkette mountain range, the traditional firework display will light up the sky.

Party in the city centre

Monday 30 December and Tuesday 31 December 2019

On 31 December, the Inn Bridge becomes a stage and the area around the Inn a party destination from 6 pm onwards. DJs, culinary delights and colourful shows create a great atmosphere on the streets. At midnight, the Strauss waltz "The Blue Danube" is played according to Austrian tradition. Don't be surprised if everyone suddenly starts waltzing around you – that’s all part of the Austrian New Year’s Eve celebrations. At the same time, a firework display high up at the Seegrube fills the night sky with sparkling lights and an enchanting show called "INNS'zenierung" is held by the River Inn. On 30 December, you can enjoy the "Zwergerlsilvester" New Year's celebration for children.

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. Find out more about the opening times for museums and restaurants during Christmas and New Year
