Several years ago, I visited Innsbruck (map), the capital of the state of Tirol in Austria, in the summer. The approach into Innsbruck Airport was absolutely spectacular and I wrote about this in my Plane Views – Innsbruck post. Surrounded by the stunning peaks of the Tirolean Alps, the views as one lands or takes-off from Innsbruck, are truly astounding. On my most recent trip to Innsbruck, this time in the winter, I was yet again treated to awe-inspiring aerial views, both before landing as well as during my return flight. This trip confirmed yet again that Innsbruck is one of the most spectacular places to fly into (or out of).
Flying into Innsbruck in winter
I spent a few days in Innsbruck for several meetings before returning home. The breathtaking mountain scenery never fails to amaze me! And the best part is: everywhere you look, you’ll catch a glimpse of the beautiful mountains!
I was treated to more spectacular winter mountain views when I left Innsbruck:
If you’re ever flying into Innsbruck, make sure you book a window seat! If the weather is clear, you’re in for a treat!
