The city of Innsbruck stands in the mountainous west of Austria. It is the capital of the province of Tyrol and forms part of an important north-south route through the Alps, from Munich to Verona, via the Brenner Pass. If you hire a car in Innsbruck you'll find that just four miles south is the Patscherkofel ski resort; the Glungezer ski area is 14 miles south. Other local highlights include the heart-shaped Herzsee Lake, the awe-inspiring Arnspitze mountain chain and the dramatic rocky valleys of the Sagbach and Viggarbach rivers.
The Alpine city of Innsbruck has become a major tourist destination thanks to its impressive location among the mountains and collection of spectacular old buildings. Visitors with a hire car in Innsbruck can fully explore the sights. Among the old streets, palaces and towers, the tourist highlights of Innsbruck include the Goldenes Dachl Museum with its gilded roof, the magnificent baroque Imperial Palace and gothic Hofkirche, packed with Renaissance sculptures. Elsewhere in the city look out for Europe's highest zoo, the romantic Ambras Castle in the mountain foothills and the views from the landmark Bergisel Ski Jump.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
