Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.

Innsbruck is a municipality in western Austria and the capital of the federal state of Tyrol. It is located in the Inn valley at the junction with the Wipptal which provides access to the Brennerpass, just about 30 kilometers south of Innsbruck. In 2001, the population of the city was 117,342 and an area of 104.91 square kilometers. Innsbruck's main station is one of the most frequented railway stations in Austria. Due to its location in between high mountains, Innsbruck serves as an ideal place for skiing in winter and mountaineering in summer.
