Capital of the Alps - urban and alpine

Innsbruck region

Innsbruck for good reason is called the capital of the Alps: the city is surrounded by a breathtaking mountain scenery. If you look up to the mountains from the city, you nearly can't believe it, but you get on top of the mountains in only 20 minutes by taking the cable car to Nordkette. Up there you can hike, bike or ski - depending on the season.
