Austria: Photos of Innsbruck

 

The province capital of Tyrol, Insbruck, 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, Insbruck is cultural, economic and tourist centre (Congress Centre) but also university town and exhibition centre. In 1964 and 1976 Insbruck was venue of the Olympic Winter Games.
