Innsbruck

— 5 nights
Nestled in a valley between snowcapped peaks, Innsbruck evokes visions of a winter wonderland.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stubaier Gletscher and Schloss Ambras Innsbruck. Step out of Innsbruck with an excursion to Krimml Falls (Krimmler Wasserfalle) in Krimml--about 1h 30 min away. There's lots more to do: stroll through Bergisel Ski Jump, admire the striking features of Dom zu St. Jakob, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Alpenzoo, and fly down the slopes at Rosshutte.
