A city of enormous historical import as well as a renowned reputation for wintersports which has earned it the title “the world’s winter capital”. Landmarks include the famous Golden Roof, Hofburg Palace, Triumphal Arch and St. Anne’s column which celebrates the freeing of the province from the Bavarians who occupied it during the War of the Spanish Secession in the early 18th century.

It is the last large city to the west of the country and is the major centre of the Tyrol region including East Tyrol.
