... couple of local spots we would frequent in our week. The bar at our hotel and a cafe and bar called Hocus Pocus. It was located near the main square and aside from having lovely coffee, large teas and delicious hot chocolates it had this really quirky atmosphere and was non-smoking - perfect.
Ah Innsbruck you've been wonderful. I will happily return to see you.

Before arriving in Innsbruck I did a little research online and found out that it was the most dangerous airport in Europe and one of the most dangerous in the world! As a nervous flier this wasn't the most comforting of news!

I would recommend visiting Innsbruck just for the incredible view from the plane!
