1st Day : will reach Innsbruck hotel at 11am.

In this short span of time please suggest places i can visit. Is it advisable to go to grossglockner High alphine after 2pm since its a 3 hrs journey by that time it will be dark.

I would suggest the Garmisch/Mittenwald route from Munich to Innsbruck for the scenic beauty. Mittenwald is certainly worth a visit.

Regarding the Grossglockner, it depends on what time of the year you are visiting. Arriving at the Grossglockner at around 5pm is still worth it as the road if the road is open until 8pm in May and until 9pm in June until August.

Have not read what time of year you will be visiting? Winter dark at 16:30, summer at 21:30. High season, low season - winter or summer?

From Innsbruck you could go to the viewing platform on the Stubai glacier "Top of Tyrol."

Maybe catch the train (Stubaitalbahn) from Innsbruck to Fulpmes for dinner and return? Huisler Stube is OK. Make reservations.

We just like to get up on the mountains in Tirol and drive from village to village. The views from up there are simply breathtaking.

The Grossglockner is a magnificent road trip, but it takes a full day to make a circle from Zell-am-See over the Grossglockner. You'd make a circle through Northern Italy--coming back to Innsbruck thru the Brenner Pass.

You're about a 2 hour drive back to the Munich Airport from Innsbruck.

Definitely stop in Mittenwald!!

Views from Hungerberg overlooking Innsbruck are beautiful. From there you can then take a cable car to the Seegrube station or go even further up to the Hafelekar station. These are all stops on the Nordkettenbahn, which starts just outside the pedestrian zone across from the Innsbruck Congress.
