Austria: Photos of Innsbruck

The province capital of Tyrol, Innsbruck, is situated in the Inn Valley, on the exit of the Wipp Valley surrounded by a beautiful alpine landscape. The city is crossed by the river Inn and separates the Upper from the Lower Inn Valley.

Because of the location on the important intersection of the north-south connection of the Eastern Alps and the east-west connection via Arlberg, Innsbruck is a cultural, economic, and tourist center ( Congress Centre ) but also a university town and exhibition center. In 1964 and 1976 Innsbruck was the venue of the Olympic Winter Games.
