Innsbruck

Nestled in a valley between snowcapped peaks, Innsbruck evokes visions of a winter wonderland.
Venture out of the city with trips to Aqua Dome - Tirol Therme Laengenfeld (in Langenfeld) and Stubaier Gletscher (in Neustift im Stubaital). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Swarovski Kristallwelten, get to know the resident critters at Alpenzoo, contemplate the long history of Altstadt von Innsbruck, and take in panoramic vistas at Town Tower (Stadtturm).

To see traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Innsbruck trip itinerary site.
