Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I propose this view of the facade overlooking the river of the city of Innsbruck. I hope you like it, then some letters about the villa.

Innsbruck ['ɪnsbrʰkʰ] is a city in the west of Austria, capital of the state of Tyrol. It is located in the valley of the Inn, in the middle of high mountains, the Nordkette (Hafelekar, 2,334 msnm) to the north, Patscherkofel (2,246 msnm) and Nockspitze (2,403 msnm) to the south. It is of international fame for the practice of winter sports.

The first documents referred to Innsbruck date from 1187 ("Insprucke"). It served as an important crossing point of the Inn River. Then, the route through the Brennero Pass was the largest transport and communications link between the north and south and the simplest way to cross the Alps. The city generated income as it became a place of passage, which produced a development for the prosperity of it.

The Winter Olympics have been held twice in Innsbruck in 1964 and 1976, when the city replaced Denver, Colorado as its headquarters, after Colorado voters refused to fund the games. The Youth Olympic Games are held from 13 to 22 January 2012.
Innsbruck was subsede in Euro 2008 football.

Because it is in the middle of high mountains, Innsbruck is the ideal place for skiing in the winter, and mountaineering in the summer. There are several ski resorts in and around Innsbruck on the Nordkette.
