Flee markets, boutiques or specialised fairs, Tyrol offers a wide variety of possibilities to fill your shopping bags.
In Tyrol there is something for every taste: no matter if you are planning to stay in a village or a larger city, in almost every place you can find opportunities for shopping. >From small corner shops to noble boutiques and delicatessen shops, shopping in Tyrol is an experience for all your senses. Of course in the cities such as Innsbruck, Landeck, Kitzbühel and Lienz, the offer is particularly varied.
Of course also a visit of a market is an absolute must-do. Farmers’ markets offering home-made products, fruit and vegetables of local cultivation, flea markets with interesting objects and collectibles, rarities and beautiful pieces, weekly markets with clothes, shoes, leatherware and sweets on their market stalls, antiquity markets with quaint pieces for connoisseurs… Tyrolean markets cater for all tastes and needs.
One of the largest markets can be found in the market hall of Innsbruck. It is a combination of farmers market and food stores and is characterised by a typical market atmosphere. This is exactly the place where once upon a time there was a large weekly market, on which the freshest products of Innsbruck and surroundings were offered for sale. Two centuries later this market used to be held daily and the market place was transformed into a market hall. Today there is the largest farmers’ market of Tyrol, where local products such as bacon, goat cheese, vegetables, fruit, alpine herbs and much more. Also flowers, crispy bread, meat and fish are sold.
Worth mentioning are also particular markets such as the Easter or summer market in Hall in Tirol, various arts and crafts markets or pottery markets. Last but not least there are the popular Christmas markets, which every year cast a spell over thousands of visitors.
