City of Innsbruck 

30,000 citizens from around 150 different countries spread international flair in our city every day. Innsbruck is a city of sports, education, culture, business and tourism. A large number of international sporting events, around 100,000 jobs and more than 3 million overnight stays per year speak for themselves. Every third resident is in education. 
Innsbruck is the city of short distances. Mobility and infrastructure are very important. New urban areas are constantly being developed. To this end, we are currently implementing the largest infrastructure project after the Brenner Base Tunnel: the tram and regional train, in which an investment volume of around 400 million euros is being invested. 
At the same time, Innsbruck is a city where people count, regardless of where they come from. Respect and humanity for every human being are very important in our Alpine city.
