If you are planning a road trip through Austria, here are some of the main stops you should make on the way from Innsbruck to Vienna.

Innsbruck  Austria


Innsbruck is the capital of the federal state of Tyrol. The name of the city can be translated as “a bridge over the Inn”, referring to its location in the Inn Valley. While still in the city, make sure to visit the Old Town. Here you can see the popular Golden Roof, or Goldenes Dachl, which was completed in 1500 to mark the wedding of Emperor Maximilian I and Bianca Maria Sforza.

Other famous tourist destinations in Innsbruck are the Hofburg, a former Habsburg Imperial Palace, the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum and the Hofkirche, built by Emperor Ferdinand I in 1553.


After visiting the Tyrolean capital, you can head to Mayrhofen, a small town, located less than 45 miles southeast of Innsbruck. It is best known for the Snowbombing music festival, held each spring since 2005.

The Gerlos Alpine Road and the Grossglockner High Alpine Road

From Mayrhofen, you can continue your road trip along the Gerlos Alpine Road, which would take you through the Gerlos Pass and near the Krimml Waterfalls. Then you can take the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, named after Grossglockner, the highest mountain in Austria. This route offers incredible scenic view of the Austrian Alps.


Continue through the lake district of Salzkammergut. Salzkammergut is a resort area, situated in the heart of Austria. Some of the major points of interest in the region are the towns of Bad Ischl and St. Wolfgang, as well as the picturesque village of Hallstatt, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.


The next important stop on your road trip from Innsbruck to Vienna is the city of Salzburg. It is the capital of the federal state of Salzburg and one of Austria’s largest cities. Salzburg is also the birthplace of Mozart.

Some of the most popular tourist destinations in the city are the Old Town, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, the Salzburg Cathedral, an impressive baroque building and the Mirabell Palace.

The Danube Valley

After leaving Salzburg, continue your road trip through the Danube Valley. Some of the places to see here are the Melk Abbey, a huge Benedictine monastery, located in the city of Melk, the Wachau Valley, Austria’s most famous wine region, and the beautiful town of Krems an der Donau.
