Shopping in Mayrhofen
When you hear the word "holiday shopping" you doubtlessly think of main shopping areas in the Adriatic or on city breaks to places like Barcelona, Paris, Rome, New York, etc… But I would like to tell you about my holiday shopping experience in Mayrhofen - something totally different and definitely interesting! Mayrhofen's main street can also be described as the shopping mile for the Mayrhofen-Hippach Holiday Region, but it is not just for foodies or adventure-loving sports people - it's also for people of all ages wishing to expand their range of fashions whilst on holiday.
Kaufhaus Tyrol shopping centre in the heart of Innsbruck brings international flair to Tyrol. This exclusive address offers first-class shopping with over 50 shops on several floors. In addition to the extensive shopping facilities, the building itself - from visionary star architect David Chipperfield - is equally impressive. It comes as no surprise that Kaufhaus Tyrol was named Europe's most attractive and best shopping centre in 2011 and was given an ICSC European Conference Award. Another plus point is how easy it is to reach: the shopping centre's main entrance is in Maria-Theresien-Strasse; the entrance to the in-house underground car park is in Wilhelm-Greil-Strasse.
Address: Maria-Theresien-Strasse 31, 6020 Innsbruck

The Alpine Zoo is located at 750 m above the roofs of Tyrol's capital city of Innsbruck - at the foot of the north ranges. In an area of just over 4 ha, some 2,000 Alpine animals representing about 150 species are nurtured in semi-natural enclosures, terrariums and aquariums. No other zoo in the world features such a complete collection of wild animals from the Alpine region. This just one reason why a series of world-first breeding successes have taken place.
Please note that you are not allowed to take dogs into the zoo because many wild animals regard dogs as dangerous threats and react by taking flight.
