Make a fantastic jump!
Olympia Ski Jump
As you probably know Innsbruck was a guest town to the Olympic Games, somewhere in the seventies. The Olympic Ski Jump was held in Bergisel a small village south of Innsbruck. The views of Innsbruck standing on the Ski Jump Mountain is simply great. If you get up as high as possible, you have to respect the Ski Jumpers.

Walking Make Sightseeing Easy
It is pretty easy to see most things in Innsbruck just by walking around the streets. I particularly loved the evenings and walking then and stopping at this little bar where the waiter was so old and so bent over and kept bringing everyone else's drink at our table but mine. I was afraid he would cark it before I got it.
I am not used to drinking carbonated water, but it's a very big thing in Europe I guess.
So if you don't want to end up with seltzer-type water, ask for "water without gas"...otherwise if you just ask for water, you will get bubbles.
in the grocery stores, you have to look carefully to notice if you are buying bubbled water.
You can do Innsbruck in different kind of traveltypes.
Prepare for much walking to do. The things you need are depending on your traveltype. Knowing you are all travelling people: You know what you need ! Don't forget: In Austria is a lot of rain ! The country i'sn't green from nothing! Everything can be bought in a country like Austria , so if you forget anything, no problem. The sights are beautiful, so bring your best gear ! Prepare for rain ! You know what to do !
