The old town of Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol in Austria.
One of Europe's most idyllic cities, Innsbruck is nestled in the heart of the Alps in Tyrol, Austria. The Historical Old Town is tiny but packed full of sights and traditional bistros.The ‘Capital of the Alps’ whose 800 years of urban history combines with the mountains. Here you can wander into the past by visiting the Hofburg Imperial Palace, the gothic Hofkirche (Royal Court Church), The Triumphal Arch in one of the historical markers and things to see in Innsbruck, Cathedral of St. James, City Tower and the glimmering Golden Roof with 2,657 fire-gilded copper tiles (which makes it quite the star attraction). Innsbruck’s old streets are a conveyor belt of gothic and baroque architecture styles and facades.
