What is it like to live in Innsbruck?
As the capital of the Austrian Alps in Tyrol, Innsbruck is a world class destination for skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, climbing and countless other outdoor activities. It only takes 20 minutes to get from the city center to 2,256 meters above sea level, summer and winter. If you enjoy outdoor sports it is one of the world leaders—we think #1. It also has a great university, lots of bars, cafes and clubs, a good live music scene, an impressive infrastructure and business environment for a city of its size along with a well connected airport. Innsbruck is only 30 minutes from Italy and 45 minutes from Germany. Bottom line, outside the office you are spoiled for choice in Innsbruck.
TL;DR It’s awesome. Seriously.
Working out of our new office in Vienna is awesome, here is why.
Vienna is more than a world class city. In 2018 it was awarded city with the highest quality of life for the 9th time in a row! As the capital of Austria, Vienna sits at the heart of Europe. It combines nature and city with over 2000 parks. Well known for music, museums and coffee house culture, Vienna is also the home of the German speaking worlds largest University. It is an amazing University town with all the activities, resources and nightlife you could want. It is also a terrific city for families if that is your thing. An additional benefit to Vienna - Cropster's Innsbruck headquarters is only a few hours away by train making business trips combined with pleasure trips in the heart of the Austrian Alps a real possibility.
TL;DR It’s a fantastic place to live. That's why it keeps getting awards.
