• Guided City Tour of Innsbruck

    Visit the Capital of Tirol and visit the Fantastic Swarovski Crystal Worlds
  • Innsbruck , capital of the alps, offers a unique mosaic of cultural history: the city has been shaped by the past but still continues to evolve with the times. Today, the magnificent and imperial historic buildings in the city centre meet attractive and groundbreaking modern landmarks. Several of Innsbruck’s buildings are world famous, for example the Bergisel Ski Jump by Zaha Hadid and the Golden Roof.

    Swarovski Crystal Worlds was opened in 1995 to mark the centennial anniversary of the company’s founding. Multimedia artist André Heller designed a unique and magical place. This beloved attraction has brought moments of wonder to over thirteen million visitors from all around the world. Visitors are surprised, touched, and perhaps even transformed by crystal in all its facets.

    In May 2015, Swarovski Crystal Worlds ushered in a new era of wonder. The Chambers of Wonder exude a new brilliance; five of them have been completely redesigned and expanded outwards to include an open space of crystalline nature: the garden. In this magical place, you will encounter modern art as well as ancient history. Visit the Giant and his garden and let yourself be enchanted by the beauty, inspiration and energy, the care, and esthetics.

No. Usually the beds in the mountain huts have got a blanket and a quilt. Anyways it is better to ask for more information to the mountain hut.

Usually the room has a shared shower, just a few rooms have a private shower. Using the shower has normally a cost because the water in the mountain huts is precious and it runs frequently out.
