It’s a city surrounded by the dramatic slopes of the Tirolean Alps – a perfect winter sports playground. But there are many more things to do in Innsbruck that reveal the culture, style, and elegance of Austria’s fifth largest city. A stroll through its old town reveals a time capsule of culture and history. Baroque, neo-classical and medieval architecture reveal Innsbruck as a city of grandeur and splendour. I half expected to see people in medieval dress and imperial soldiers on the streets. For all of this Innsbruck is not a stuffy place, instead it complements its rich history with modern lines and the vibrant pulse of a city looking to the future while treasuring its past.
