Innsbruck : Staying in the Heart of Old Innsbruck

Hotel Weisses Kreuz - Guide

Innsbruck, Austria.
The Weisses Kreuz is a 3-Star Hotel located at the heart of Old Innsbruck along Herzog Friedrich Street. Just a few steps away from the iconic Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof), the Austrian Gasthaus Hotel is a perfect place to explore Innsbruck.

The hotel itself is more than 400 years old, dating back to the 15th century as an inn. Like the some of the hotels and landmarks in Austria, the Weisses Kreuz owed part of its fame to the legendary composer and musician, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who stayed at the Weisses Kreuz in 1769.


Hotel Weisses Kreuz - Classic Room

The hotel’s charming interior is beautifully decorated with furniture and ornaments of distinct regional flavor. We stayed in a Classic Room on the upper floors where we could get a nice view of the surrounding mountains and the Goldenes Dachl.

The room’s amenities are rather limited, there is no kettle or an air-conditioner, you had to open the windows in order to get some ventilation and hence, it could get very cold at night and noisy as are a cafes and restaurants were located downstairs. Nonetheless, beds were comfortable and the toilet was in good working condition.

Hotel Weisses Kreuz - Tiroler Stube

Breakfast is the main highlight of this historic gasthof in the heart of Innsbruck, the first meal of the day begins in one of the beautiful Tiroler Stuben in the guesthouses. My favourite is the Tiroler Stube because the window seat has a view of the Goldenes Dachl and the mountains as backdrop.

Unlike your usual western breakfast fare, there are no fried eggs, omelette or scrambled eggs but only boiled eggs which comes with a specially designed plate.

Breakfast consisted mostly of cold cuts, fruits, cereals, cheese, muesli and various kinds of bread.

It is an interesting departure from the usual breakfast fare and with such awesome setting, I would love to have a longer breakfast if not for the short time we had in Innsbruck.

The Weisses Kreuz may not provide top-notch facilities but it more than makes up for it with its friendly service, convenient location and gorgeous setting.
