... market, but we only had one night there, barely enough time to enjoy the atmosphere. Compared to other markets and such, we found shopping was better in Innsbruck compared to Munich.

We left Martin's parents' house at about midday, and said farewell at the train station, as we were catching a 1.45pm train to Innsbruck.
