Visit Innsbruck! The Capital of the Alps

If you are a lover of the outdoors, a trip to Austria is a must! The enormous Alpine mountains that span across seven European countries, most definitely add up to the beauty Austria has to offer.  

Innsbruck is the largest city in the Western part of the country. Its charming pastel-hued houses give this town a unique flavor, and its location is amongst the many reasons why this destination deserves its glory. Innsbruck is 30-minute drive from Italy and Germany, and only a short ride from many ski resorts nearby. Hence, this city is the perfect destination for a weekend away especially if find yourself in the Alpine region.
