We're where others are going: In the heart of Innsbruck.
The Hotel Grauer Bär enjoys an excellent downtown location directly behind the Landestheater
and in the immediate vicinity of the Golden Roof and the Imperial Hofburg. This makes us the
perfect starting point for strollers and explorers. You will find them in practically every alley of the surrounding area
Strollers on traditional Tyrolean delicacies, high-quality shops and surprising insights into the history and present of Innsbruck.
The history of the city of Innsbruck is omnipresent in our neighborhood. Already 500 years ago Emperor Maximilian I turned Innsbruck into an urban hotspot and had the "Golden Roof" covered with 2,657 fire-gilded copper shingles. Among many other formative personalities of the Habsburg Monarchy, Empress Maria-Theresia splendor and glory came to Innsbruck. During her reign, the imperial Hofburg was converted into a magnificent palace and, alongside the Vienna Hofburg and Schönbrunn Palace, is one of the most important cultural buildings in Austria.
