Railway Station Hauptbahnhof Innsbruck

The railway station of Innsbruck is located in the centre of the city between the old town and the olympic centre.

By 25.000 passengers everday, the railwaystation belongs to one of the most important in Austria. The importance lies in the commuter traffic to the Tirolean capital Innsbruck, and the nodal point for the East/West traffic Budapest - Vienna - Salzburg - Wörgl - Innsbruck - Bregenz - Zurich, as well as for the North/South traffic Munich - Wörgl - Innsbruck - Verona - Milano - Venice - Rome.

The planning for a railway station in Innsbruck started in 1850. Three years later Emperor Franz Joseph I. allowed the routing from Innsbruck to Wörgl and further to the German border of the city Kufstein.

The square infront of the railway station serves as junction for the local public transport.
