Innsbruck city guide
If beer courses through your veins and you consider yodelling an actual music genre then Innsbruck is the place for you. The capital city of Tyrol (in German: Tirol) is surrounded by mountains.

I suppose there’s a grain of truth in every mountain of bullshit. Take a look at Vienna; the wave of progress obviously stayed here for some time and gave birth to some forward-thinking individuals.
