Innsbruck, the imperial city, capital of the Tyrol, has always had a central role to play in Europe. Connections to important transport routes established the basis for Innsbruck’s rise as a centre of business, trade, conventions and tourism.
Innsbruck has retained its medieval Old Town with its narrow, twisting streets and tall houses in Late Gothic style. Wherever you are in this city, beautiful vistas of the huge ring of mountains will surround you.
The historical names of the city, «Oenipons» and «Anspruggen» make it clear that bridges are a part of the past and future of the Tyrolean capital. The city’s people and business owners knew how to use the favourable topographical and scenic conditions to their advantage and make Innsbruck a flourishing centre.
The identity of the city is strongly influenced by cultural understanding. Today, Innsbruck is an international meeting place.
ISPAD would like to thank the City of Innsbruck for its kind support!
