Innsbruck. Pop. 117,916. Currency Euro. Language German. Time Zone GMT + 1 hours. Innsbruck Kranebitten Airport INN. Best Time to go – year round location – for winter sports and summer walking. Innsbruck is the state capital of the state of Tyrol in Austria. Innsbruck is the cultural and economic center of western Austria and is one of the most famous and substantial tourist centres, with more than a million overnight stays. The city is located on the river Inn with alpine mountains on either side. The origins of Innsbruck go back to pre-roman times where it’s strategic location on the Verona-Brenner-Augsburg route helped to establish an early settlement. The Brenner pass route became the easiest route from Northern Europe into Italy and Innsbruck became a key player in the Austrian economy. It’s location also became popular with winter sports enthusiasts and The Olympic Winter Games were held in Innsbruck twice, first in 1964, then again in 1976. To support these games the imposing Bergisel hill was developed with one of the most famous ski jumps in the world. Arguably the highlight of the 1976 games was the ski-ing downhill gold medal won by Austrian hero Franz Klammer. Another major sporting event, Euro 2008, will take place in the Tivoli Neu Stadion where some matches will be played.
