Tyrolean Folk Show in Innsbruck
Start your evening with pickup from your central Innsbruck hotel, and then travel to Sandwirt Restaurant, where you'll enjoy your Tyrolean evening with its owners, the welcoming Gundolf family. Austrian folk music has been played by the family since the 18th-century, meaning you’ll see the most authentic dances that have been passed down through generations.Upon arrival you'll be served a complimentary drink (a glass of beer, wine or a soft drink) and then take your seat to watch the 1.5-hour show. Dressed in typical Austrian attire of lederhosen and dirndls, the dancers will keep you entertained with raucous yodeling, cow-bell ringing and folk dancing. Clap along with dances like the Schuhplattler, a jig where shoes are slapped at each other (originally danced by Tyrolean men to woo the ladies), and then stamp your feet to the woodchopper’s dance -- Tiroler Holzhackertanz. If you’re eager to really immerse yourself in Austrian culture for the evening, then upgrade to include a 3-course meal with your show. Eat either before or during the performance, feasting on Austrian specialties like wiener schnitzel (breaded pork scallops served with lemon). See below for a sample menu.After the show, you'll be taken back to your hotel.
