Innsbruck is the capital of the federal state of Tirol in western Austria. Nestled in an Alpine valley, Innsbruck is a favorite destination for skiing in winter and mountaineering in summer. But Innsbruck also makes an attractive choice for the pilgrim, spiritually-inclined traveler, or architecture buff. The city itself has a Baroque cathedral and several historic churches and just a short bus ride away are the two important Catholic shrines of Absam and Seefeld.
