This was my absolute favorite part of visiting Innsbruck. The tourist board sponsors an evening hike up to a little tavern in the mountains (the hike is free with your Club Innsbruck card - get from your hotel). You hike up with the group, have a drink at the tavern (with amazing views on the patio), then go inside for some Tyrolean music (be prepared to yodel and dance!).You can also purchase food from the tavern. When it gets dark, you walk back down the mountain guided by the light of your lantern (and the guides, of course). Truly a wonderful experience!

“Beautiful lantern hike up the alps”
Reviewed 16 December 2011

The hike takes about an hour and is kind of steep. Wear good shoes. Led by guides from the Tourist Board, the hike leads up to Heiligwasser, a rustic guest house on the slopes of the Patscherkofel, the mountain which towers over Innsbruck. Here you can soak up the Alpine atmosphere and enjoy the view of the city lights twinkling serenely in the valley below, accompanied by traditional Tyrolean music and a bite to eat...and much to drink. Plan to dance because they will make you. The people are very friendly and make you feel at home. Make sure to use the restroom prior to departing because it is a long way back down.
