Innsbruck

Innsbruck is known as the Capital of the Alps, and for good reason.
Innsbruck everything a vibrant city needs, and yet it's just ten minutes from the towering mountains that dominate its skyline.

Past and future meet in Innsbruck, its world-famous Imperial sites cheek-by-jowl with some of the world's most innovative postmodern architecture. The famed Golden Roof, the Imperial Palace and Emperor Maximilian’s tomb at the Hofkirche provide a window into history, while the arresting form of the Nordkettenbahn, designed by Zaha Hadid, showcases the forward-thinking vision of bringing modern public transportation to the country's great peaks.

Innsbruck's historic downtown is small enough to explore on foot. But the city is also large enough to be expanding outwards towards the resort villages on its periphery -- and to be a lively home to 30,000 students who demand and enjoy a diverse arts and cultural scene.
At the end of the day, many locals hop on mountain bikes and pedal up to one of the nearby mountain huts overlooking the city. In winter it's not rare to meet somebody while skiing and then see him or her again the same evening at the opera in the Tiroler Landestheater, or dancing the night away to a band or DJ in one of the many clubs under the railway.
