Western Austria, Innsbruck and Tyrol

Famous for its breathtaking Alpine sceneries and ski resorts, Western Austria comprises three states – Vorarlberg, Tirol, and Salzburg – and borders Italy to the south, Switzerland to the west, and Germany to the North. The region’s largest and most important cities are Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol, and Salzburg. Western Austria’s alpine traditions and position, between Southern and Northern Europe, contributed to making it one of the most fascinating and culturally rich regions of the continent.
