Innsbruck, capital of Austria’s western state of Tyrol, is a city in the Alps that’s long been a destination for winter sports. Innsbruck is also known for its Imperial and modern architecture. The Nordkette funicular, with futuristic stations designed by architect Zaha Hadid, climbs up to 2,256m from the city center for skiing in winter and hiking or mountaineering in warmer months.One of Austria’s most popular year-round vacation destinations, Innsbruck has retained its medieval Old Town with its narrow, twisting streets and tall houses in Late Gothic style. Wherever you are in this fun city, beautiful vistas of the huge ring of mountains surround you: to the north rise the jagged peaks of the Nordkette (North Chain), in the Karwendel range; to the south, above the wooded Bergisel ridge, are the 2,403-meter Saile and the Serles group; and to the southeast, above Lanser Köpfe, lies the rounded summit of the 2,247-meter Patscherkofel, so popular with skiers.
