Stay at

The Penz 

Conveniently located in the city centre with the possibility to use the garage of the Rathaus Galerien mall. The breakfast is on the top floor with a nice view of the city and a big selection of healthy and not-so-healthy-but-tasty breakfast options.  (Adolf-Pichler-Platz 3)

Shop at

Innsbruck has become one of my favourite cities for shopping in Austria. I really love that there are still small boutiques with great service and advice and selling unique pieces, even though you can also shop for the mainstream brands.

Cool design from size 34 to 48 and extremely friendly staff who try to find unique items according to your personal style. (Kiebachgasse 12)

Tiroler Edles

Cute little store mixing a local product concept from the region around Innsbruck with stylish elements. I really liked the soaps, ponchos and scarves. (Seilergasse 13)

Fink’s Woman

If you are into premium brands, I recommend a visit at Fink’s. Their range covers classics such as Burberry to young brands such as Dondup. I also highly recommend their men’s boutique in the Rathaus Galerien (next to the Mango store). It is one of the boutiques with the best service I have ever been. (Maria-Theresien-Straße 24)


This boutique near Restaurant Sitzwohl has a really great selection of international premium brands such as Drykorn but also smaller labels with unique styles. (Sparkassenplatz / Corner Erlerstraße)


Jewellery concept by Swarovski with their own brands, Cavalli, Kenzo and many more. I loved the personalized gift boxes: for every purchase you can choose a stamped box. I chose “Today I am a Princess”. (Rathaus Galerien, Maria-Theresien-Straße 18)
