Innsbruck, Austria: A Perfect Home for Winter!

Sunset!

Hidden between snow-capped mountains, Innsbruck took me surprised with its magnificent sight to behold. The capitol of Tyrol is nested among the Alps, so travelling from the city’s heart to the peak of Mt Hafelekar lasts only a few minutes.

Apart from breath-taking nature, Innsbruck is also home to many excellent museums and galleries, which is enough to make occupied visitor busy for a day or two. Far from being monochromatic, the city is vividly decorated with various shades of colours, making it appealing to travellers all year round. Visitors will be pampered with its medieval architecture of the narrow streets of the old city before heading up to the glorious mountain range for skiing or sightseeing too.

Just a short distance from the city centre, one can enjoy a ride on Nordkettenbahn, a cable car that whisks visitors from the futuristic-looking station to the top of 2200-meter high of Mt Hafelekar. The view from the top is nothing short of spectacular. I especially enjoyed taking a picture of a perfect sunset to end my trip in Innsbruck!
