Some mountainous cities and towns are particularly memorable. On my per- sonal list one of the highest-placed cities of this type is Innsbruck where you can fly from Poland even for a weekend. Seeking culture or sports activities? With a short winter break in Innsbruck it’s not a case of "either/or".

The joy of physical activity, winter air and mountain solitude can be combined with the desire for cultural highlights, tasteful shopping and urban lifestyle. This is possible as only 20 minutes separate the bustle of city life and the stillness of the high mountains.

Innsbruck lies in the very heart of the Alps, appealing to both winter sports aficionado and lovers of good cuisine. Walking in the footsteps of the Habsburgs, you can explore the city’s most famous historic sites and then, following the advice of the prominent Gault&Millau guide, enjoy traditional dishes and taste modern world cuisine. In Innsbruck you can enjoy a typical city breakfast in the Old Town and several hours later have brunch with live music and marvel at the harmony of city and mountain at a height of 2,000 metres. This is what makes this city unique! To find out more about this unique destination, read our cover article.
