Notes on the Geography of Austria : Imst
Upstream from Innsbruck, there's a valley--the Gurgeltal--reaching north toward the German border and Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Imst isn't a tourist center, and in some ways it's very traditional, with many residents owning cattle that winter in town, in barns like detached American garages. In summer, the animals are in the mountains while gardens in town are bountiful.

New courtyard paving and a horse chestnut.
Elderberry and a log crib.
Put it all together: a barn with red currants, plums, and grapes.
