Magnificent Baroque splendor meets the boldly curved clarity of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. It’s impossible to be anything other than enchanted by the charming interplay of historic and contemporary buildings between the Nordkette and Patscherkofel mountains.

Innsbruck's cityscape has changed dramatically, especially in the 1990s - international tenders and a focus on new architecture have influenced lots of buildings and attracted many big names to the city.

This walk gives you the perfect opportunity to explore Innsbruck as a cosmopolitan and important location for modern architecture.
