Living in Innsbruck



Erasmus Student Network is a non-profit international student organisation. These students provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students. However, the main focus of ESN is placed on current exchange students, who often face problems (and feel abandoned) in their new environments. Therefore, ESN offers help in academic, social and practical integration processes. This is mainly done through activities in the local sections, which include cultural and social events such as trips to various places within the country, film nights, language projects, international food festivals and last, but not least, parties. In addition to that, many sections have introduced mentor systems, which help the international students mainly in academic and practical integration.

Travelling by train


Train travel is an excellent way to get around Austria, not only because of the striking views. The train system is also very convenient and efficient. To receive 45-50% reductions on Austrian state-run train travel, consider purchasing a VORTEILSCARD (=discount card). Prices start from EUR 19.00-- per year for under 26 year-olds.

Sparschiene Austria and Sparschiene Europe

With these special price tickets, you can travel to Austria's major cities for as little as EUR 9.00-- and to Europe's most popular destinations at a very low rate. Book well in advance since there is only a limited contingent of these cheaper options.
