Innsbruck-The Gateway To The Alps


Somewhere between a modern Austrian town, and the wild Tyrollean Alps is a piece of heaven, Innsbruck Austria, the gateway to the Alps.

As the “municipal capital” of Tirol this city, (and its strategic proximity to the Brenner Pass) have been historically important (for this reason), and has been inhabited and well guarded since the Stone Age.

As you walk along its beautiful streets, its quaint and colorful architecture will inspire your curiosity and leave you happily winding in and out of Innsbruck’s authentic pubs and gift shops seeking memories and gifts to bring home with you.

Most of all, no matter where you might find yourself in Innsbruck, the beautiful Alpine mountain chain will dominate the skyline, and gently remind  you that when compared to nature even the grandest cities are insignificant in comparison.
