Moving to Innsbruck with the professionals

If you want to move from Germany to Innsbruck, it is comparable in terms of effort with a move within the Federal Republic. Your relocation consultant from Geuer will competently assist you with individual advice for everything you need to consider. There are virtually no restrictions on the goods you can take with you. Whether your move is for private or professional reasons: Austria is part of the European Union, and private moving goods can therefore be imported largely duty-free and VAT-free. Neither a residence permit or visa, nor a work permit are required. Customs duties are also not incurred.

Our moving service

If you want your move to be particularly stress-free and smooth, it is best to make use of our professional moving service for international furniture transport. In doing so, you discuss with your personal relocation consultant which work should be carried out by our experts and which part of the tasks you would like to do yourself. Of course, our relocation experts will also be happy to take care of the complete relocation preparations, including all possible official procedures.

The optimal moving route for your transports to Innsbruck is part of our moving services. In case you move into a furnished apartment there first, we will store your currently unneeded household goods safely and dryly for you for a transitional period. In the course of planning your move, you should also decide whether and which items need to be moved at all. Often, a new acquisition of obsolete items at the new place of residence makes perfect sense, and you can use the move to sort them out.

In such cases, our experienced movers will of course also take care of the proper disposal. If your removal goods are ultimately limited to a manageable load, we can have them transported for you at a very reasonable price, for example by means of suitable additional loads.





Your new environment

Innsbruck is the capital of Tyrol with a uniquely charming blend of mountain and valley, nature and city, hustle and bustle and tranquility. The city is nestled in sun-drenched high plateaus, in the neighborhood of romantic mountaineering villages and offers many family-friendly oases of well-being as a local recreation area.


The renowned university city convinces both in winter and in summer with a top quality of life. It is directly connected to the rest of the world via Innsbruck International Airport, and its regions offer recreational pleasures, cultural highlights and sporting highlights in every season. With a good 130,000 inhabitants, Innsbruck is the most populous city in Tyrol and the fifth largest city in Austria.

The city is bordered to the north by the Karwendel Mountains and to the south by the foothills of the Central Alpine Range with the Patscherkofel. West of Innsbruck, the confluence of the Melach River with the Inn River represents the official dividing line between the western Upper Inn Valley and the eastern Lower Inn Valley.

In total, Innsbruck consists of nine cadastral municipalities and localities, which were formed from formerly independent municipalities or parts of municipalities. These cadastral communities also form the city districts of Innsbruck. Your Geuer relocation consultant will certainly be able to give you a tip or two on which corner of your new hometown you should definitely start your first discovery tours!

What else is important?

When moving to Austria, there are actually comparable points to consider as with a change of residence or domicile within Germany. Within three days after the move you are obliged to register with the Austrian authorities. The registration office is responsible. There you present the registration form signed by your landlord, your passport and your birth certificate. Health insurance is mandatory. If you are permanently employed by an Austrian employer, you are covered by statutory health insurance in the same way as in Germany. If not, you will have to find a private health insurance of your choice.

All EU citizens who want to settle in Innsbruck for longer than three months, or in Austria at all, must also apply for a registration certificate. When re-registering your car, you must first obtain liability insurance for Austria before going to the registration office. The German driver’s license is also valid in Austria, but can be reissued if desired.

For the practical preparation of your move to Innsbruck, our moving guide has further valuable tips ready. Geuer informs you with a ToDo list about all steps for timely notices, registrations, de-registrations and re-registrations with offices or insurance companies. Our experienced contact persons for private moves within Europe will be happy to advise you personally and will also take care of formalities and dealings with authorities that you may not be able to do yourself in terms of time.
