There are beer halls, microbreweries and beer gardens which all offer wonderful, authentic experiences.

Amongst the back streets of the city are some wonderfully traditional bars, unchanged over the years.

Despite the impression of Innsbruck as a historic city, much of the city manages to blend modernity with the Innsbruck history. There are some awesome, contemporary bars with stunning interiors and very cool vibes.
