I found this pleasant well maintained park not far from the old town centre, next to the Hofburg palace. It is well treed with good walking paths and plenty of park benches to sit and relax. It is also near the theatre and a café/restaurant.

A very old garden full of history, still well maintained.It was a nice experience visiting this garden. Make a visit if you can find the time,. it was cooling under the trees in the hot summer. Unfortunately the flowers were not that nice due to the heat. Lots of people were seen enjoying the summer.

A nice stroll on relatively flat ground close top the city and main attractions and cafes. A peaceful stroll among the greens with views of the Alps in the background.

We passed through the park after our tour of Innsbruck en route to the bus park which is located adjacent to it. Nice flowers and people playing around. There is a small children's castle there and also many horse drawn carriages which one can use if there is enough time. The walk through the park was lovely and a nice... More

We discovered this place by chance. It is located not far from the city center, next to the Hofburg palace, so it's quite easy to get there. It wasn't listed on our Innsbruck guide, but, in my opinion, it's worth a visit. It is a small park, very well maintained, plenty of benches and beautiful flower beds. Although there's nothing...

Located in the centre of Innsbruck but you wouldn't know it. It is a perfect getaway when you have had enough of the bustle of the Innsbruck shops and other tourist attractions. There are many paths, through the middle or round the outsidee. At the centre is a large monumental building, refuge if it rains, where nearby you can play... More

Strolling around the park we encountered a wedding and spent a while watching some rather comedic old fellas playing a very dramatic game of giant chess.

Well worth a visit. Watch outdoor chess being played. Watch the ducks and swans and other wild like. Enjoy the well looked after gardens. Plenty of seats where you can just watch the many people and groups go by.

Although we have visited Innsbruck a few times, this was our first visit to the Hofgarten. Anyone with the rmotest interest in gardening should visit. Some of the trees are truly very old and quite magnificent. What a tale they could tell if only they could speak!

I cut through the area to get from my hotel to another attraction but went back the next day and took a nice long walk through the park and it was quite a peaceful place to sit in the shade and relax.
