The revenue from the city to be a crossing point on this route allowed to flourish. Innsbruck became the capital of all Tyrol in 1429 and in the fifteenth century it became a center of European politics and culture, when Emperor Maximilian I moved the imperial capital to Innsbruck in the 1490s. | innsbruck
