Leave the Old Town and, after just a few steps, you can set off on an exciting journey through time. To the north you can admire the colourful ensemble of buildings and church towers of "Anpruggen", the oldest part of Innsbruck today called St. Nikolaus, Mariahilf and Hötting. 
With the River Inn in the foreground and the Nordkette mountains as a backdrop, these 15th century buildings with their towering gables are amongst the most photographed  motifs in Innsbruck. But it’s worth looking further afield. If you stroll through the streets of St. Nikolaus and Mariahilf, you get a sense of the original Innsbruck. You feel transported back decades, even centuries in time. 
The Golden Roof may well be just round the corner, but only a few tourists find their way here. They’re missing out, because a walk through these undiscovered alleys and hidden squares is really worthwhile. A walk for all those who want to take their time and have a look behind the scenes. It’s also a great tour for church lovers!

INSIDER TIPS
  • Farmers, butchers, vegetable and fruit vendors and delicatessen specialists display their products in the market hall – call in and have a taste, it’s really worth it!
  • The Ottoburg stood empty for centuries (the old German word “öd” meaning “abandoned”). But in the 18th century, "öd" was falsely associated with Otto II of Andechs, which is how it acquired the name "Ottoburg".
  • One of the "Black Men" in the Court Church (the first statue, Ferdinand of Portugal) was cast in the Gun Foundry (Geschützgiesserei), housed in Büchsenhausen Castle
  • Lots of businesses in the St. Nikolaus district have been cultivating arts, crafts and creativity for centuries, such as Walde Seifen (soaps), where you can also have a look behind the scenes!
