Travel to Innsbruck

You can reach Innsbruck either by car, train or airplane.

 

By Car

Driving to the Brenner Archiv by car is not really recommended, because in all streets in the center are short-term parking zones. If you still want to come by car, it´s maybe the best to park in a parking deck.

Although there are a lot of possibilities, only one will be described. It´s the easiest way to leave the autobahn at INNSBRUCK WEST toward ZENTRUM. After about 500 meters merge onto EGGER-LIENZ-STRASSE. After about 1 km turn left at BACHLECHNERSTRASSE/HOLZHAMMERSTRASSE. Then take the first right onto INNRAIN.  After about 1 km you have reached the MARKTPLATZ, where a parking deck exists. Of course there are some other parking decks  near the archive, but this seems to be the best.

From the parking deck you can walk to the Archives in about 5 minutes. After about 400 meters in the western direction you have to turn left. After about 60 meters you have reached the Brenner Archiv (cf. the last part of the map).

By Train

If you have arrived at Innsbruck Main Station (Innsbruck Hbf), you can either take a taxi, the bus or you can walk.

There is a taxi stand in front of the station. The taxi ride to the Brenner Archiv takes about 10 minutes and costs around €10. 

If you want to take the bus, you can either take the bus line F (direction FLUGHAFEN) or R (direction REHGASSE). The bus station is also in front of the railway station. You have to alight from bus at the station KLINIK/UNIVERSITÄT. From there you have to cross the street in direction North-East and after about 120 meters then take the first branch at left. After about 50 meters you have reached the Brenner Archiv.

The Brenner Archiv are also within walking distance and the walk will take about 20-30 minutes.  Although there are different ways, the easiest (but not shortest) will be described. After you have left the railway station, you have to follow the street (BRUNECKER STRASSE) till MUSEUMSSTRASSE (the cross street after about 300 meters in the North). Then turn left and follow the street. After about 500 meters you have reached the historic center (ALTSTADT). The easiest way is to bypass the historic center via BURGGRABEN and MARKTGRABEN. The MARKTGRABEN ends at the INNRAIN, a busy road, which you should cross to come to the MARKTPLATZ. From there the most beautifull way is along the river (INN). After about 400 meters in the western direction you have to turn left. After about 60 meters you have reached the Brenner Archiv.

By Plane

If you arrive by plane, you have the possibility to come by taxi or by bus.

There is a taxi stand in front of the airport. The taxi ride to the Brenner Archiv takes about 15 minutes and costs around €15.

If you want to take the bus, you have to take the bus line F (direction WOHNHEIM SAGGEN). The bus station is also in front of the airport.
