Public Transport

Innsbruck has a good network of public transport mainly by bus and taxi, however the buslines to the institute changed recently as follows:

The Institute of Botany is connected with the town centre and the train station by 2 bus lines (A and H). To reach the institute from the main train station (Haupbahnhof) go to the third platform (C) from the main entrance and take bus H in the direction of "Allerheiligenhöfe". Get off at the bus stop "Botanikerstrasse" which is located close to the lower entrance of the Botanical Garden. The meeting is with no rain in front of the green house. Busline A from the town centre (Museumstrasse IN DIRECTION SADRACH)) brings you also to the bus stop "Botanikerstrasse"other details as above. From stop "Botanikerstrasse" you reach the institute through the Botanical Garden. At times when the gate is closed go around the garden to the right (eastern) side along a little footpassage connecting Botanikerstrasse with Sternwartestrasse. To go downtown from the institute you can get both buslines at the stop Botanikerstrasse, but look for line A direction "Sanatorium Rum" which goes downhill – do not use H at this site unless driver confirms to you that he goes downtown. To come downtown whith line H you must take the bus the other side of the road (uphill in Botanikerstrasse) in direction of "Schutzengelkirche" or "Seniorenheim Saggen". Busline F is connecting the airport with downtown and links to the bus lines A and H connecting to the institute.

You can buy tickets in advance (green light columns in the street) or with the driver.
