Innsbruck is surrounded on all sides by majestic mountain ranges. First of all, the city is known as a first-class ski resort and the venue of three Winter Olympics. Since the beginning of the season, numerous skiers and snowboarders come here to experience the excellent trails.
However, Innsbruck has much more to offer tourists than just skiing on snowy slopes. This picturesque Tyrolean city is built up with Baroque mansions of the Habsburg period and is filled with the special spirit of the Austrian province, where the way of life may not change for centuries.
The Hofburg Palace and Helblinghaus, the Triumphal Arch on Maria Theresa Street and St. James Cathedral are all the legacy of the brilliant imperial era, carefully preserved by descendants. The fabulous Swarovski Crystal Museum is able to impress the most sophisticated imagination, and the magnificent views of the Alpine valleys will remain in memory for a long time.
