Innsbruck in Austria is a little paradise on earth with its snow-capped mountains and picturesque valleys. Lush green in summer, the city changes to winter wonderland at the end of year, inviting skiing enthusiasts to hit the slopes of the Nordkette Mountain. Visitors can also choose to descend at any of the lower levels along the slopes from the cable car for a wide range of adventure activities and other fun experiences. Across the region, panoramic views of the alpine meadows invite shutterbugs to stop and capture this incredible natural beauty through their lens. History buffs particularly enjoy a stroll along the medieval-era Altstadt, overlooked by the majestic Habsburg palace and cathedral.
