    Innsbruck Olympic Ski Jump Arena. The cemetery is what Olympic jumpers saw as they made their jumps. A bit morbid. The statue is of Andreas Hoffer who successfully repelled Napoleon's forces with troops of farmers and peasants - 2-3 times. We didn't get to go into the Wilton Basilica, which is sad, but it's Sunday so we couldn't interrupt church services. The Emperor Maximilian had the Golden Roof built in the square so he'd have a private box to view events and executions. Also, to commemorate his wedding.Read more

    Just a couple of extra little glimpses- we visited the Swarovski factory just outside Innsbruck ( of course you can buy jewellery not just impressive statues!). Also broke my watch band but found a Swatch shop in Salzburg so now have a nice new band.Read more

    Als erstes werde ich heute die Olympia Sprungschanze besichtigen. Also zuerst mit dem Bus ins Zentrum, dann mit dem Tram nach ... Natters. Haha, falsche Linie erwischt. Also wieder retour fahren und dann mit der richtigen Linie zum Bergisel. Irgendwie ist nirgends gestanden, das man noch ein rechtes Stück den Berg hochlaufen muss.

    Die Anlage habe ich mir größer vorgestellt. Mit dem Schräglift gehts der Landepiste entlang hoch und dann mit einem normalen Lift zuoberst auf die Schanze. Der Turm ist hingegen sehr beeindruckend und die Aussicht ist prächtig.

    Beim Runtergehen erwische ich die falsche Türe und stehe, zak, an der Startrampe für die Springer. Verbotene Zone für Touristen.

    Swarovsky exhibition, in Wattens, and the Jumping Hill, in Innsbruck, are spots that you shouldn't miss in this journey from the west heading to Salzburg. The crystal world underground, or outside in the open air, will take your breath away and the "ahs" and "ohs" will come one after the other. As for the jumping hill, no matter how many times you watched it on television, the feeling of craziness and gravity-defying will make you feel totally flabbergasted. Only insane people can do it! I wouldn't do it for sure!Read more
