Cultural diversity

Old and new – yesterday and today.

Innsbruck is the perfect breeding ground for growing art scenes and impressive cultural settings and this can be seen in both the present day and the past. The region is enhanced by an almost infinite range of museums, galleries and exciting public art spaces, as well as literature, music, theatre, film and dance. Architecture has always played an important role, as demonstrated by modern masterpieces by architect Zaha Hadid and magnificent historical buildings such as the Court Church. The Haus der Musik (House of Music), which opened in 2018, perfectly captures how the artistic character of Innsbruck constantly switches between historically significant and contemporary and modern: its façade reflects the Imperial Palace on the opposite side of the road in all its glory.
Essential topics

Museums and galleries

How did people become Tyroleans and what has shaped their history? Curious minds can find the answer to this question and many more in museums such as the Tirol Panorama Museum on Bergisel hill, which is home to the Giant Panoramic Painting, and the Museum of Tyrolean Folk Art. The museums in the Zeughaus, in the Golden Roof building and in the Imperial Palace also delve into topics such as regional history with an incorrigible spirit of discovery. If you would prefer to embark on these journeys of discovery with company, you can choose from a variety of exciting and interactive tours.

 

In art circles, there is a very special kind of stroll on offer: ART Walks Innsbruck where passionate gallery directors guide you around their terrain, sharing their infectious enthusiasm with both gallery newbies and established art lovers. Our tip: The Innsbruck Card provides free entry to a colourful range of museums, making it particularly affordable to go on these journeys of wonder and discovery.


Remarkable architecture to enjoy along the way

When strolling around Innsbruck, you come across captivating architectural treasures and stunning artistic settings practically by chance. Be it the colourful row of houses in the Mariahilf district or the charming arcades in the historic old town: Innsbruck is an architectural feast for the eyes. In Innsbruck, not only historical structures are wrapped in artistic splendour, but also modern everyday buildings:

 

The striking lift station for the Hungerburgbahn funicular and the internationally renowned ski jump on Bergisel hill, both of which were designed by architect Zaha Hadid, are two of the best examples of this. The historic Kaufhaus Tyrol shopping centre and the multifunctional Rathausgalerien building also elegantly combine everyday practicality with a stylish architectural masterpiece. This harmonious composition of old and new inspires both long-time residents and Innsbruck newcomers alike.

Art in public spaces

The modern Innsbruck town hall building is far more than bureaucracy and paperwork, and well worth a visit. The glazed viewing platform on the top floor gives the best views of the south side of the tower, which was designed by artist Peter Kogler. Another feature of the town hall building is the oversized "Das Ohr" (The Ear) photograph created by the artist Isa Genzken to demonstrate the symbolic connection between public and private, between individual people and formal organisations.

 

If you keep your eyes open while strolling through the city, you will come across true works of art again and again. For street artists and passionate passers-by, there are certain locations where people are allowed paint and spray freely that have become a street art paradise. Colourful, creative and unique: this perfectly describes the works by street artist HNRX, from his colourful fruit salad to "INNS’ WURSCHT", which create above all a feeling of joy, love and fun.

Underbridge Festival

The unique UNDERBRIDGE FESTIVAL will be a special highlight again in Innsbruck in 2021. As in previous years, new "murals" will be created by well-known street artists. The spray painters can be watched as they pursue their greatest passion in a central location near Innsbruck's Westbahnhof train station – true to the motto: Even motorway pillars can be beautiful.

Literature, reading, libraries

Innsbruck's city library – also known as "the city's living room" – is a place where you can easily lose track of space and time. There are numerous opportunities in Innsbruck to embark on wonderful everyday journeys to literary dream islands: places where the scent of freshly printed paper is in the air instead of a salty sea breeze.

Music

Innsbruck is one thing above all else: diverse. It is therefore no surprise that Innsbruck's lively music scene has not settled on one single style but instead celebrates the great musical variety that graces the city's stages, squares and cellars. This includes, for example, the performances at Innsbruck's Haus der Musik (House of Music), which opened in 2018, at the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music and during the iconic New Orleans Jazz Festival.

Theatre and dance

Innsbruck's busy cultural quarter in the heart of the city is a lively home for theatre and music. In addition to the Tyrolean State Theatre, there are a large number of other special stages and theatre destinations throughout the region, such as the unique "Tiroler Volksschauspiele" in Telfs.
