Innsbruck, Austria (1) – Old Town (Day 14)

Our last city stop before heading back to Zurich to catch our flight home is Innsbruck (bridge over the Inn).  A last minute decision to spend two days here was a wise one.   On our first day, we head to Old Town which was located a couple of blocks from our stay, Hotel Maxmillian.   Filled with beautiful old architecture, we are surrounded with wonderful atmosphere.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Symbolic to mark the wedding of Emperor Maximilian to Bianca Maria Sforza, the Goldeness Dachl (Golden Roof) is actually made of fire-gilded copper tiles.

 

 

Designed as the royal box, the Emperor and his entourage can view all festivities in the square.
