Innsbruck is a study in contrasts when it comes to its combination of modern and imperial architecture. The city is the capital of Tyrol and is a great place for travellers who like a little of city life as well nature in their vacations. Often known as the capital of the Alps, the city is where winter sports reign supreme. However having a mix of alpine villages, mountains and city, Innsbruck comes across as a great destination for both summer and winter.

There are a lot of things you can do at Innsbruck apart from exploring the city's restaurants and winter sport. Take the cable car trip from Innsbruck to Hafelekar and see the entire city in all its majesty. Catch a Tyrolean folk show and visit Hofkirche church to get a taste of the culture and architecture of the city. The Alpenzoo Wildlife park, Hofgarten Park, and Austria tour packages will let you have a glimpse of how lavish mother nature has been to Innsbruck.
