Hotel Gasthof Mondschein
Travel Blogs from Austrian Alps
We woke up in Innsbruck this morning with a few bruises - the beds were under a tilted ceiling and both my dad and I hit our heads a few times. There was free breakfast served which was wonderful! Once we checked out we had to make our way back to the parking garage and figure a way to get out of there. It was a tight squeeze but we made a pretty good team.

... back after closing to put on for us. With the language barrier Ben haggled the tyre price down, thinking it was for two but only after they started fitting them on, we found out the price was for all four, so we really did get a great deal. With them being so helpful we dished out some chocolates, spreading Christmas cheer! Now we are parked up in a shops under cover parking hoping this may reduce the cold slightly!
