Innsbruck was my final stop, but on the way I visited at Austria's smallest town, Rattenberg. Set by the brilliantly blue Inn river, the town is basically one street, a few lanes and 414 inhabitants. Nevertheless, there are numerous cafes, breweries and shops, specially ones selling products of the traditional glass blowers of Rattenberg. After a few pleasant hours, I made my way to Innsbruck. Immediately, I felt like this was THE city to visit, with its lovely old houses, interesting architecture and breathtaking mountain scenery. Other than wandering around the vibrant city center, it's worth sitting down with a cup of coffee and delicious cakes at Innsbruck's oldest cafe, Munding; or escaping into the mountains at the Nordkette (transportation easily available from the city centre) or the Bergisel Ski Jump. A leisurely walk by the Inn river is also a must-do!
How to reach Rattenberg: The best part about Alpbach is that you get to tour around the village free of cost. You can ask the hotel staff/host for a tourist card and there you go, transport is for free. OBB App is handy for the bus timings. One can catch a bus which directly goes to Rattenberg. I would suggest you to stop at Brixlegg and walk to Rattenberg alongside river INN. The walk next to the river is prodigious.With just 400 inhabitants Rattenberg is Austria´s smallest historical town. The medieval pedestrian zone with colorful box shaped buildings is dominated by the unique displays of glass craft. Also, the whole pedestrian zone has free WiFi. Yay!
