Innsbruck station interior

Innsbruck station interior. The entrance is at street level, and the platforms are at that same level.  But the concourse is one level down at basement level as you can see here, there are escalators down from entrance level to concourse.  Two passageways run from the concourse under all the tracks, with stairs and escalators and/or lift up to each platform.  The ticket office and ÖBB first class lounge are below and to the left in this photo.

There are plenty of food outlets at the station, including McDonald's & an Impreis supermarket.  There's another Impreis across the road from the station.

For a decent meal and a beer or two, try the Stiftskeller (, a restaurant & beer hall in the heart of Innsbruck's old town, a 1.1 km 13 minute walk from the station, see walking map.  Let me know what you think!
