Between culture and nature, high peaks and low valleys, traditions and trends – no other region combines extreme contrasts with as much charm as Innsbruck. 

Here you can travel from the heart of the Tyrolean capital up to the high peaks of the Nordkette mountain range in just 20 minutes, where you can experience this alpine jewel up close and marvel at the vibrant hustle and bustle of the city from above. Or discover alpine-urban style of the Austrian city with little jumps through time from modern architecture to historical buildings. 

The city's special old town flair and famous sights are only a breath away from your next ski area or winter hiking experience. An abundance of contrasts in a very small area... Where else can you experience your own personal definition of freedom, from leisurely to demanding, in just one place?
