Walking into the old town our eyes are soon back out on storks marvelling at this towns beauty and unique character. What’s not to like about Innsbruck?
We soon had in our possession the key to the city... An Innsbruck 24hr card that was going to unlock all the top sites and attractions over the next 24hrs!
First destination was to catch the cable car up the mountain to Nordkette for spectacular 360 degree views of both the Austrian Alps and back down to Innsbruck, sprawling along the valley floor.
Other sites included the Imperial Palace (no photos allowed, just a few sneaky ones). A climb up the city tower for views over the old town and a visit of the empty tomb of Emperor Maximilian at the Court Church. We still had time for simply exploring the old town on foot and a pleasant stroll through the Imperial Gardens.
Dinner was an experience as many of the streets in the old town were crammed full of locals having a Saturday night drink and purchasing food off pop up food stalls. When Jenny spied the mushroom risotto served from one of the street stalls, we soon found ourselves lined up for one. We soon figured out you could sit at the outdoor tables of restaurant/bars as long as you purchased a drink... wasn’t that hard. “Two Radlers please!”
Lindau will be our next port of call... stay tuned!
