View over Innsbruck

Innsbruck is in the Tyrol region of Austria and exploring Innsbruck with kids can be great fun. If you love mountain scenery then you will fall in love with Innsbruck, as it is located in the Inn Valley so is surrounded by wonderful mountain scenery. I visited Innsbruck during our Austria/Germany Road Trip. If you are looking for things to do in Innsbruck with your children then why not check out my top attractions that you should visit.

Top Attractions In Innsbruck With Kids

Cable car over Innsbruck

See the Views

Head to the Hungerburgbahn funicular which from there you can take the Nordkette Cable Car to explore. This is simple and fast and the views are amazing! It can be a bit chilly, so make sure you take some extra layers in case there is snow!

Alpen Zoo

Alpen Zoo

This is the highest zoo in Europe with more than 150 different species. If you take the Hungerburgbahn funicular from the city then after just a few stops you can get off and explore this zoo.

Old Town Innsbruck

Old Town

Great for just walking about and exploring at your own pace. The Golden Roof (The Goldenes Dachl) is a great attraction to go see. It is considered to be the city’s most famous landmark. There are lots of cafes nearby so you can just sit back and let the world go by (or until the kids get bored!)


Swarovski Kristallwelten

I didn’t get to experience this attraction, but we have seen many great reviews. It looks like an interesting place to visit with children. The play tower & play area look like great fun and will definitely keep the kids entertained.

Ski Jump Innsbruck

Ski Jump

Bergisel Sprungschanze Stadion is a ski jumping hill stadium. It is pretty hard to miss and looks very cool. You can pay to go inside and then head up to the top. There are good views from the top and a restaurant. You may even get to see people jumping as they do some practice jumps.

  1. I think I could give that ski jump a go 😉 Or perhaps I’ll just watch. It does look a great place to visit with kids though. #mondayescapes

  2. I’m planning a trip to the Alpen Zoo next month – waiting for it to get a bit warmer! Thanks for the other ideas too #MondayEscapes

  3. We’ve been thinking abut a city break to Innsbruck so this is really useful. In Oslo we spent a morning at their ski jump and it was a great way to see a city – and watch others on the zip-wire they had attached to the jump!

    1. Oh you will have a lovely time in Innsbruck. Such a beautiful place to visit. If you had time you could go to Igls which is where the Olympic Sliding Centre is. There is also the Patscherkofel Cable Car which gives great views over Innsbruck and surrounding areas.

  4. I’d have fun watching the ski jump but think it looks a little terrifying. Sounds like you a had a great time. Thanks for linking up to #MondayyEscapes

  5. Oh wow it looks amazing, so many gorgeous views although I wouldn’t fancy doing that ski jump! Thanks so much for linking up #mondayescapes
