On such a beautiful day, I had to go out and take pictures. That’s the Nordkette (North Range) above, beyond it lay more mountains and, eventually, Bavaria.
An Argentine woman once told me that “Innsbruck is a very Italian city”, which didn’t make sense to me at the time but every so often I find a little bit of what she meant, like this corner building.
The Needle Bridge (it might have an actual name but I don’t know it!), built for the new incline which runs up to the Hungerburg. There is actually a city there on the left, hidden by the trees.
St. Nicholas Church, framed by trees and mountains. Really, almost everywhere you look it’s a postcard view.
