Founded in 1180 and twice the site of the Winter Olympics, Innsbruck, Austria, is the capital of the gorgeous state of Tirol (also spelled "Tyrol"). It merits a three-night visit.

Set at the base of the spectacular Alps, Innsbruck is 235 mi/375 km southwest of Vienna and 60 mi/95 km south of Munich, Germany.

The city is fairly compact, with an old town that evokes ideas of the Middle Ages, but you'll need to do a good amount of walking to appreciate it fully.
