Innsbruck is very beautiful at the foot of the Alps, with fantastic mountains all around.
Most people come here to ski or snowboard on one of the many fantastic slopes in the Alps. But in the summer, Innsbruck is just as amazing with its picturesque nature. The fact that Innsbruck has so many bars and cafes is largely due to the young population studying at the city’s universities and colleges.
But the secret capital of the Alps has more than that. Those who want to get closer to the mountains of Tyrol can visit the futuristic valley station and take the Hungerburgbahn to the popular Alpenzoo. The famous architect Zaha Hadid has been inspired by the area’s Icelandic landscape.
