2 hour delay in take-off due to a technical problem but flight itself was good. Cabin service (business class) was rather slow.
Great staff and team
Long checkin line but it moved quickly due to efficient staff.
Cost effective travel with capable airline.
Mobility Assistance from the plane could be improved at Frankfurt however once taken to the assistance centre it was very good.
Baggage was lost but delivered before we settled down for the night ! Many thanks
Had to pay for drinks even tea
Despite difficult circumstances, a very good flight
Don’t like BA new seats allocation system. Even when checking in 24hr before still have to pay to change seat
Really friendly staff, very comfortable flight.
The capital of Austria’s Tyrol region, Innsbruck is surrounded by high alpine peaks. The town itself is a stunning example of Hapsburg heritage and, in the winter, it becomes a hub of sporting activity.
The spring in Innsbruck brings warm days and chilly nights. It’s a beautiful time to visit – but do bring some warm clothes for the evenings.
In the summer, average temperatures get up to 24˚C, making it very pleasant and it stays this way well into September. It’s the most popular time to visit but, even in high season, it rarely feels too busy, as many of the students are away at this time.
The Innsbruck Promenade Concerts, taking place in July, bring more than 1,500 musicians to the town to perform in a beautiful open-air setting. Flights to Innsbruck from UK airports at this time can get busy.
If you’re visiting in the summer or during the concert season, then it’s best to book tickets in advance, as prices do go up at these times.
There are a number of ways to increase your chances of finding cheap tickets on Expedia when you fly to Innsbruck.
Use the ‘Nearby airports’ option to expand your choice of convenient departure and return points. It is often possible to find better value tickets from other airports. Likewise, you can also click the ‘Show flexible dates’ button to see what else is available near your chosen dates.
There are numerous direct flights to Innsbruck from several UK destinations.
Innsbruck Airport is located about three miles to the west of the city, which is a 15-minute taxi ride, costing about €20. Alternatively, you can catch Bus F, which takes about 20 minutes and will set you back about €3.
The largest airport in the Tyrol, it offers the entry point for anyone looking to explore one of Austria’s most beautiful regions. It is also a busy winter activity airport, with skiers and boarders coming from all over the world. In total, it deals with around one million passengers every year.
Direct and indirect UK departures are available from a number of different carriers, including:
The city is easy to explore on foot, with a classic walking route taking you past the main station and through the pedestrianised central area.
Top public transport options include the four tram lines and a good network of buses. All vehicles are low floor and modern, making them accessible for all visitors. However, some lines do split to different destinations, so it’s worth keeping an eye on your route during your journey. There are also some dedicated sightseer bus lines.
Innsbruck is well known for its churches, with some of the best examples being the Hofkirche, which houses the tomb of emperor Maximillian I. The Cathedral at Saint Jacob and Wiltener Basilika are equally as impressive.
Equally grand is the Schloss Ambras, a Renaissance style castle built for Archduke Ferdinand II of Tyrol.
Of course, it’s the natural location of Innsbruck that really appeals. Head to the Nordpark for some of the best walking routes in Europe, as well as some incredible views. In the winter, you can ski here too. There are also winter sports events, including the Ski Jump Contest, held in the town each year.
British citizens won’t need a visa to travel to Austria but your passport should be valid for the duration of your stay.
If you’re planning to visit in July for the promenades, then it is a good idea to book your flights and accommodation well in advance, as it can get booked up very early at this time of year.
