    Alpine meets urban in the capital of Austria’s mountainous Tyrol region. This photogenic stunner, hemmed in by the Austrian Alps, combines Baroque and contemporary architecture alongside a bustling atmosphere.

    FUN FACT: Innsbruck sits on the Inn river and the name originates from the German word brücke, meaning bridge, translating as the bridge over the Inn.
