Travel to 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, but gardens are bountiful.
