Assif Am-David (Israel):
I did not quite understand what this cultural landscape is all about. Innsbruck has a nice historical city centre, but nothing exceptional, not even for Austria. The Alps make a beautiful setting, but again, not unlike other Alpine sites already on the list.

Jakob Frenzel (Germany):
We have been to the Karwendelgebirge last year. The view from the Gerberkreuz is horendous and also Innsbruck is a nice old town with a beautiful panorama.
