Forecast

We will experience typical foehn weather conditions on Friday. The sky will be bright with some mountain peaks being shrouded in “foehn fish clouds” (in technical jargon: “Altocumulus lenticularis”). The wind will be gusty at times and values will of course be mild.

Tendency

We are in autumn now and thus in the middle of the foehn season! This time of year is particularly known for its long-lasting foehn periods.

Before Thursday we will experience just such a foehn period: the wind will be strong at times allowing fair and very mild weather.

Back to list
All good things come in threes, so they say. But in Innsbruck they come in sixes! At least as far as Innsbruck's "Christmas in the Mountains" (Bergweihnacht) is concerned. Six different Christmas markets each with its own character and special features give you the perfect opportunity to linger and explore. The tradition started in 1973 with the traditional market outside the Golden Roof. The Family Market on the market square has a homely atmosphere and lots of exciting attractions for children. The Modern Market on Maria-Theresien-Strasse, Innsbruck's splendid main avenue, has a very special vibe with sparkling tree lights and modern lighting design. The Panorama Market on the Hungerburg with fantastic views of Innsbruck is simply irresistible, whilst the magic of Christmas on Wiltener Platzl includes genuine arts and crafts, outstanding food and a select cultural programme. But if you’d like to escape all the pre-Christmas hustle and bustle and enjoy a moment or two of quiet reflection, head for Hans-Brenner-Platz square in the St. Nikolaus district.
To enjoy a truly comprehensive Christmas experience, why not visit all six markets!

INSIDER TIPS
  • Award-winning! Innsbruck has been recognised as one of the most beautiful Christmas market destinations in the world.

  • 5,800 light bulbs and 12 km of light garlands using energy-saving LED lights create a wonderful ambience in the markets.
  • The Swarovski crystal tree on the market square is 16 m high, with more than 170,000 Swarovski crystals sparkling on it.
  • Great for kids: discover Rapunzel, Snow White, Haymon the Giant and many other well-known mythical and fairy-tale characters in the Fairy Tale and Giants' Alley in the Old Town!
