Earliest traces suggest initial inhabitation in the early Stone Age. Surviving pre-Roman place names show that the area has been populated continuously. In the 4th century the Romans established the army station Veldidena at Oenipons (Innsbruck), to protect the economically important commercial road from Verona-Brenner-Augsburg.
Due to its altitude and position in Central Europe far from the coast, Innsbruck has a Continental climate. Winters are cold (colder than those of most major European cities) and snowy. Winter nights can get frigid, occasionally dropping to −12 °C.
Innsbruck is located along the A12/A13 corridor, providing freeway access to Verona, Italy and Munich, Germany.
Innsbruck Hauptbahnhof, the most important railway station of Innsbruck and Tyrol.
