Sitting on the junction of Austria’s Inn and Wipp Valleys is the alpine city of Innsbruck, the capital of the Tyrolean State. It’s a wonderful place in the country for those seeking a relaxing sightseeing vacation because of the cold climate.
There are plenty of things to see in this picturesque and quaint metropolis, like exploring its Old Town and see architectural marvels like Ambras Castle and the Imperial Palace. You can also immerse yourself in Tyrolean culture and folklore by visiting institutions like the Armoury and the Folk Museum or by tasting the local cuisine and watching shows in pubs. For breathtaking views of the landscape or visual treats, you can ride the Hungerburg Funicular or the Innsbrucker Nordkette cable car. There’s even a zoo that you can visit and observe the mountain animals and various endangered creatures that it protects.
