Innsbruck the Capital of the Alps, lies in the valley of the River Inn between the peaks of the Alps. The city holds more than just the majestic scenery of the Alps, Innsbruck has a blossoming cultural and natural environment. Getting to the city is easiest by car, so it is essential if you travel by train or plane to another Austrian city, to rent a car. Driving in Austria is anything but complicated and it also offers great flexibility and freedom. You can explore the country and cities at your own pace. Inside Innsbruck there are a lot of things worth a visit. The building that is on every tourist guide book’s first page about Graz is the Goldenes Dach, which is a balcony commemorating Emperor Maximilian’s and Bianca Maria Sforza’s marriage. The building itself was a ducal palace, which was made by merging two commoner houses. Next to this marvel there is the Saint Jacob church, which holds Archduke Maximilian’s tomb. If you are in Innsbruck you just cannot miss the Hofburg which was the third most important imperial building in Austria, and which is completely out for tourists to explore. Right next to the Hofburg lies the Hofkirche which is the royal church and where you can see Emperor Maximilian’s tomb. Other must-visit places are the Ambras Castle, the Triumphal Arch, and the Alpenzoo which contains every information on the wildlife in the Alps.
