A DAY IN INNSBRUCK

LIVING IN A country that borders nine others provides opportunity for some pretty awesome day trips. And because one would be a fool not to take advantage of that, we allowed the convenience of location to bring us to Innsbruck, Austria, last weekend. During our visit, we walked along the Inn River and into the Old Town where everything was spread out before us – the Medieval buildings of the Old Town, the famous Golden Roof, and, towering over the city, the 2,000-meter-high peaks of the Nordkette mountain range (the candy-colored houses against the white, powdered sugar-like mountains can only be described as picturesque). For lunch we enjoyed warm goulash soup with two glasses of Gösser beer and Apfelstrudel with vanilla sauce for dessert – a must when visiting the region.IMG_8462innsbruck2IMG_8439IMG_8533innsbruck4IMG_8449.JPGIMG_8537IMG_8542innsbruck3IMG_8546innsbruck5   IMG_8514        IMG_8597IMG_8494_edit

  1. Wow, it looks really nice in Innsbruck. I love the colours and shapes of the houses and the nearby mountains. Must be very nice there. I guess, I have to put a visit in Innsbruck on my To-do-list. ;) Thanks for sharing.
