Snapshots from Innsbruck

1.26 - Innsbruck, Austria

I spent the morning wandering around Innsbruck, shopped for some yarn, took some photos and took in the main sites of the city. Here is a quick glance of the city:

A view of the Olympic ski jumps, looking up from Platform 3 at the Innsbruck trainstation while waiting for my train to Zurich.
A nice view of the Alps from the center of the city. I am standing on a bridge that crosses the Inn river.

Looking down the Inn valley that flows through the city.

"Goldenes Dachel" - The Golden Roof. This is a famous site to see in the center of the old town. This photo does not do it justice, but the roof shingles are beautifully gilded and are glowing in the morning light.

Daily bread: small baguettes, rolls and pretzels, some called brioches are more common than sliced bread for sandwiches.
