Innsbruck is a compact little city close to the mountains. Two scenic tram routes run into the hills and there is good beer; twenty taps in one bar!

 

The airport is close to the city and is served by Easyjet on Fridays and Mondays – very handy for our tour. BA also fly the route on different days. An alternative route is via Munich with daily flights, then train through the mountains to Innsbruck.

 

Innsbruck has a year-round funicular railway (opened in 2007) to the Hungerburg mountain. Just a stone’s throw away from the famous “Goldenes Dachl” (golden roof) you can start your journey into the lofty heights of the Nordkette mountain range by rail. Its route is somewhat spectacular: first one travels through a tunnel, then over an imposing bridge across the Inn River, and finally it traverses an incline of 46 per cent to reach the Hungerburg, at 860 metres above sea level. From there the new panorama gondola continues up to the 1,905-metre-high Seegrube, where one has tremendous views of the entire Central Inn Valley, the Stubai and Zillertal Alps, and across the Wipptal to the Italian border – and this is also where the new Alpenlounge Seegrube offers a superb dining experience. If the air here is still not thin enough for you, climb onto the Hafelekarbahn and ride up to the 2,256- metre-high Hafelekar, which promises 350 days of cloud-free views a year. http://www.nordkette.com/en/ As an alternative, should you wish to keep your feet firmly on the ground, begin your tour of the five Christmas Markets. The city is home to the Tyrol region tramway museum and in recent years a historic vehicle has been operating on Market weekends. There are only a few routes in the Innsbruck system and the one most popular with tourists is line 6 whose terminus is at Igls which lies at the foot of the mountains. Major track repairs have currently closed the route but the plan is for it to re-open well before November. The single route of the Stubaitalbahn is a 60 minute ride through fine scenery serving small villages on its way to the terminus at Fulpnes. Whatever the status of the city trams might be we plan to take the ride to Fulpnes. The five Markets may also attract the attention of some today. A private visit and tour of the Theresienbrau brewery is planned. The city’s overall beer scene offers around six interesting bars and a couple of breweries which will be approached for a visit.

 

WEATHER WARNING Whilst snow at street level is unlikely at end of November we must be aware that there may be some unfavourable weather in the mountains. If this is the case the programme may well need to be amended accordingly.

 

Items included are:

·         Three nights B&B at Alpin Park Hotel, Innsbruck.

·         Pub/brewery visits as shown in the Programme

·         Pub evening meal on Friday

·         One day ticket for city transport

·         Hungerburg train return

·         Tram charter or guided tram tour

·         Service and VAT at current rate

·        Crookham Travel courier throughout.
