Nestled in a valley between snowcapped peaks, Innsbruck evokes visions of a winter wonderland.

There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Alpes, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica Wilten, admire the landmark architecture of Innsbruck Hbf, and make a trip to Pfarrkirche Igls Vill.
