Look closely and you might catch a glimpse of tender green leaf tips on the branches of the trees. But the heralds of spring cannot be held at bay - especially at the Easter market in front of Innsbruck's Golden Roof where you can stroll around and visit a variety of stands beautifully adorned with pretty Easter eggs and spring decorations.
In addition, the Old Town offers a colourful programme of Tyrolean traditions and customs. From 'Frühschoppen' - a traditional pre-lunch get-together over a glass of beer - and the making of 'Palmbuschen' - bunches of twigs decorated with crepe paper and little pretzels - to traditional costumes and festive Tyrolean Easter dances. Local inhabitants present centuries-old customs traditionally carried out to welcome the spring.
