Innsbruck Travel Blog› entry 19 of 19 › view all entries
So, with just one day left, it was time to check out Innsbruck itself. Iāve explored the beautiful surroundings and even the neighbor countries of Austriaā¦ so now it was time for Innsbruck
The European Championship of Soccer was going to be played in the coming summer in Innsbruck, so I wanted to check that out, and of course as a Sport&Health student AND as a Winterport enthusiastic I had to check out the Ski Jump of the Winter Olympics of 1964 and 1976. But besides all the sports, there are other things to see in Innsbruck.
First I got together with my sister downtown, to see the historical centre of Innsbruck. Elise showed me around and let me see the house where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived and I bought Elise a nice souvenir and I said: āWell this is āFur Eliseā ;)ā
After that we explored the market and there was a lady standing as a statue.
I was amazed by the beautiful buildings and the weather was good so the beautiful mountains on the background did the rest: I was falling in love with this City.
Elise and I ate a ākaisersmarrnā, kind of a broken pancake, but then itās not ;). After our tummies were full it was time to go to the soccer stadium and the ski jump area.
Unfortunately to enter the Ski jump costed some money, it was busy with school trips and I was running out of time to catch my plane, which leaved at 15:50. So quick picture and off I was. Pack my stuff and to the airport.
At the airport I gave my sister a big hug and there was a surprise for me.
After all, I had to say, I visited Austria several times, once in the summer, but in the spring is recommended. The Alps are really beautiful this time of the year, and you can still ski/snowboard if you want. It was nice to explore a nice city as Innsbruck and Tirol in the sun.
Yes, the sun... because back in The Netherlands there was my big friend waiting for me.... the rain... I WANT TO GO BACK!!!
