Innsbruck Itinerary

We, a group of 3 couples, all senior citizens, plan to spend about 2 weeks in austria during September 14 of which 4 to 5 days around Innsbruck. Will appreciate ideas and suggestions on where to stay (we would prefer to be in a small town nearby with availability of apartments, supermarkets, public transportation and good view/scenic town), what to do and places to visit on day trips (would prefer scenic and places unique to the country). Being first time visitors to this area, detail guidelines will be appreciated.

How about staying in Seefeld, which is 40mins away by train? There is plenty of accommodation here, lots to do and the journey down to Innsbruck is easy and really scenic. Have a look at www.seefeld.com for a feel of the place.

Well, we all have our favorites. I stay in the small mountain village of Igls in the mountains above Innsbruck, accessible by the "J" bus (15 minutes) or the beautiful tram through the woods. Igls is at the foot of the Patscherkofel, the site of the Olympic Super G and surrounded by mountains and walking paths too numerous to mention. The town has a nice, modern supermarket, a cafe for cakes and icecream, and a newsagent. There are many apartment hotels. We prefer Haus Gothensitz, which sits in its own private park. Have a look at its web site or read the reviews on tripadvisor. You will see the splendid views from the rooms and pictures of Igls itself.

Thank you very much. Will appreciate guidance on what all we can do over 3/4 days keeping in mind that a couple of us have knee problem and hence climbing/long walk to be avoided. Would prefer nice scenic spots accessible through public transport

Hi - As suggested, we booked an apartment in Seefled from Sept 16 to 21. We would now like to plan "what to do" during the 5 days and welcome guidance. One full day will go to Innsbruck. During other days we would like to visit scenic places and sites exclusive to Tirol. We will take public transport and prefer not to have long walks or climbing. As we plan to take Austria Pass if needed, we can even go to towns a couple of hours by train. Will welcome and appreciate ideas/suggestions

Highly recommended would be a trip into Bavaria to go up the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain, by cog railway and cable car. At the top, you will find the border between Austria and Germany. Have a look at zugspitze.de/en/summer/mountain/zugspitze to find out more. To get there from Seefeld, you just take the direct train to Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
