Wintertime in Austria

Winters are not anymore what they used to be in Austria, the climate change doesn’t stop at the Alps unfortunately. As a kid I remember a lot of snow in Vienna, nowadays we don’t see barely any white in the cold season. But of course Austria is more than just Vienna and the conditions largely depend on altitude and location. The following pictures were shot largely in Western Austria, Tyrol and Vorarlberg in the month of December.



A City in the Alps: Innsbruck

The scenery of Innsbruck in the western part of Austria is simply stunning. The capital of the historic region of Tyrol is situated in the Inn river valley between two mountain ranges in the north and in the south. No wonder Innsbruck is known as the capital of the Alps as well in Austria, there is just no place in the streets of the city where you don’t constantly see them. Innsbruck itself is beautiful as well, a quite colorful medieval and gothic town with beautiful sacral and civic buildings and the “Golden Roof”,  the cities most famous symbol with 2,657 fire-gilded copper tiles. Take a look!
