The Best Restaurants In Innsbruck's Old Town

Diving 800 years into Austrian history, Innsbruck’s Old Town features Gothic and Baroque styles hidden away in the Alps. After seeing the famous gold shingles of The Golden Roof, it is crucial to experience every aspect of Innsbruck’s medieval atmosphere. Its medieval homes and merchants recreate older days, yet Innsbruck’s cafes and restaurants combine old and new with a taste of local, Austrian recipes, either passed down through generations or created anew in the cutting-edge culinary scene currently alive in the city.

The Golden Roof

Cafe Bar Moustache

Cafe, Coffee Shop, Bar, Austrian, Tea

Minutes away from The Golden Roof lies Cafe Bar Moustache, a popular cafe visited by locals and tourists alike. While wandering the city, explorers can stop in for a hand-crafted drink and a quick snack during the day. At night, however, guests are often treated to live musical performances as well as low-cost drinks. Moustache’s variety of themed rooms adds to its quirky atmosphere, and the large framed picture of Tom Selleck dressed in military uniform tops off the fun environment. Cafe Bar Moustache is an ideal cafe for those looking to save a little while enjoying the atmosphere of Innsbruck.

Die Wilderin

Bar, Restaurant, Austrian, German, European

Restaurant and bar in one, die Wilderin provides guests with local produce in a casual yet refined setting. Don’t be fooled by its small menu, each item here is produced fresh and in classic Austrian style. The cozy restaurant may fill up fast, but guests find themselves surrounded by locals rather than tourists. Die Wilderin participates in the local wine festival each September, Weinfest in der Gass’n, when specialty wine from Austria flows in volumes to match the meandering Inn River outside.

Gasthaus Anich

Gasthaus Anich

Not only is Gathaus Anich known for its Austrian dishes but it is also well known for its local Tirolean dishes. Unique options such as Tyrolean Gröstl liver acquaint visitors with Innsbruck in just one bite. Gathaus Anich also offers a daily menu for a discounted price, so guests can treat themselves to a unique, Tirolean meal that won’t break the bank. One of the oldest inns downtown and owned by the Premonstratensians of Wilten, Gathaus Anich has recently been restored and renovated to keep its classic carved wood panelling and traditional look.

Address: Gasthaus Anich, Anichstraße 15, Innsbruck, Austria, +43 512 570450

Cafe Sacher Innsbruck

Cafe, Coffee Shop, Bar, Restaurant, Austrian, Tea

Located next to the Imperial Hofburg in Innsbruck and with separate locations in Salzburg, Wien and Graz, Cafe Sacher Innsbruck fuses cafe and upscale bar vibes with a restaurant, all in one remarkable space. Cafe Sacher Innsbruck boasts outstanding views of the city in its spacious outdoor area in the Hofburg. The real treat here has to be the Sachertorte though – an Austrian chocolate cake concocted by Franz Sacher in 1832. Since Sachertorte is one of the most famous specialties of Vienna and well-known throughout Austria, this chocolaty cake has its own holiday on December 5th, known as National Sachertorte Day, which is arguably one of the best times to make a beeline for this joint!

Ludwig Das Burger Restaurant

Restaurant, Austrian, Dessert

Although burgers can be found just about anywhere, Ludwig differentiates itself with a stylish atmosphere and fresh food. Its specialty burger, Ludwig, incorporates an organic beef patty, Louis pulled pork, crisp coleslaw and toppings of choice. The menu doesn’t stop at burgers, though; the dessert is raved over by customers each day. Dishes like fluffy muffins and gooey brownies complete a savory burger meal, while a range of beers and wines brings up the drink end of the bargain. Ludwig’s stylish ambiance creates a casual environment for guests to enjoy a drink, meal and dessert.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
