Tyrol’s capital is a sight to behold. The jagged rock spires of the Nordkette range are so close that within minutes it’s possible to travel from the city’s heart to over 2000m above sea level and alpine pastures where cowbells chime. Vordere Brandjochspitze is the highest peak.
Innsbruck is the capital city of Tyrol in western Austria. It is located in the Inn valley, at its junction with the Wipp valley, which provides access to the Brenner Pass some 30 km to the south. It has a population of 124,579 innhabitants (2014 census). Main industry of Innsbruck is tourism.
The Inn River is in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. It is a right tributary of the Danube and is 517 kilometers long. The highest point of its drainage basin is the summit of Piz Bernina, at 4,049 metres. The Engadine is the only Swiss valley from which its waters ends in the Black Sea, via the Danube.
Arrived in Innsbruck late on the night of 21st, I walked around the city center, next day.
Opened in 1853, the station is one of the country’s busiest railway stations, with around 25,000 passenger movements daily.
New town hall complex was completed in 2002, the building complex also incorporates a restaurant, hotel and a shopping arcade.
I was really tired out because of the long flight and the time difference. So I came back to the hotel from the market.
