IMO definitely yes.

I loved the tram thru the woods up to the former winter Olympic courses high up - there are cables once there to take you higher.

Also loved Schloss Ambras, by the lower level Olympic Ski Jump right on the southern edge of town - very neat castle/palace and grounds.

2 1/2 days are more than enough, even including a couple of half day trips into the environs of Innsbruck.

Hi, mrgrumpy -
I agree with PalenQ and treplow. I once took the series of cables cars, etc., to the top of Mt. Hefelekar - amazing views! Enjoy!

Hi,
2 1/2 days is fine. Just wanted to second Hafelekar cable car and Schloss Ambras. Both are definitely worthwhile. Hafelekar can be reached right from the old town by first taking the funicular up to Hungerberg.

Ambras:
