I is for Innsbruck

Innsbruck one of the most beautiful towns in Austria, as well as the capital of Tyrol. It's one of the best ski places, with beautiful resorts and breathtaking view of the Alps.

In Innsbruck, there is this wonderful Care Im Turm -Panaroma- Cafe. It is situated at the Bergisel Ski Jump You are guarantee to have a perfect view on Innsbruck as well as the jumpers.

Watten is a town located 13km from Insbruck. While there one can visit the Kristalwelten - Crystal World - Swarovksi (photos above)  

Can visit the Labyrinth which is part of the Crystal World. I was there a long time ago. I should make a point of going back. 

In Winter, starting November, the Christmas markets are a places worth visiting, surrounded by the Alps. Breathtaking.

Apfel Strudel - Apple Strudel - A traditional Pastry with coffee on a blue skies, sunshine winter day.

But before a the coffee break with Apfel Strudel, I hear there is this wonderful site close to Innsbruck where you can bunjee jump.  The Europabrücke -Europa Bridge is 190m above ground. I plan to visit one day. I've never been there myself. I'm not sure if I'd try this extreme adrenaline pumping activity.  Maybe one day. :)
