Excursion destinations for your holiday in Tyrol
When it was inaugurated in 1904, the 18.16 km long Stubaitalbahn was a true sensation and still is today. The number of passengers rose steadily, which no doubt is due to the many impressive panoramic views enjoyed during the approximately one-hour trip.
The romantic streetcar line connects Fulpmes with Innsbruck. The ride from Fulpmes goes through idyllic larch forests via Telfes, Kreith, Raitis, Mutters and Natters until Innsbruck.
On this stretch, there are many popular photo motives: The Mutters and the Kreither viaduct impress by their architecture. Beautiful views of the Stubai Alps, the Europa Brücke Bridge and into the ravine of the Sillschlucht, the Wipptal valley and on Innsbruck even today still attract special attention. The train station of the Stubaitalbahn are worth a visit - some of them are protected landmark buildings. Since the stations were changed at little extent only, you can still admire the architecture of the last turn of the century here.
The close by town of Innsbruck as a cultural and social focus of Tyrol and Habsburg’s alpine treasure chamber invites visitors to come and discover: The baroque palaces of the aristocracy at the Maria Theresien Straße, the “Goldene Dachl”, the Hofburg and Hofkirche with the “Schwarze Mandern” and the cathedral of St. James are only some cultural and historical highlights of the historic centre.
The historic centre actually possesses its own charm. Especially at Christmas time, it presents itself magnificently decorated. After skiing in the Stubai Valley, a visit to the Innsbrucker Christkindlmarkt, including a taste of mulled wine, sounds great. Travel time: 15 - 25 minutes.
Insider tip: The Stubaitalbahn takes you directly from the Stubai Valley to the Maria Theresien Straße in the heart of the city. Around Innsbruck the Wiltener Rococo Basilica, the art and miracle chamber in Castle Ambras, the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, the Innsbruck alpine zoo and the silver mine in Schwaz invite to experience cultural diversion.
