... surrounding areas were beautiful, so it didn't really matter. The water was a crystal clear blue colour and the sky was spotless of any clouds. We walked all around the town, across the river and into the outer skirts. We took a bus tour around the city and went up to a massive park and out near where they have their winter sports stadium.
Come Boxing Day, however, the snow fell and it fell ...
... amazing. Innsbruck has such an amazing change over the last 2 days it was unreal. Over the course of the afternoon the cloud washed in and out over the mountain. We weren't sure of the temperature, but a lad at breakfast had told me it was -15 when we had gone snow boarding on one of the mountains the day before.
Our instructor arrived and we headed off to the very baby area of the slope. He taught us to pizza and French fry, how to turn (apparently) ...
... snow village we imagined we would get to see. It's just beautiful.
We've played like kids in the snow, had snow ball fights, built a snow man (sort of), jumped in it, fell in it, and thoroughly looked like deadset tourists haha. I love snow!
... and beautiful church. Lit only by candles and accompanied by a grand organ and talented young fello on the xylophone the atmosphere for amazing. There was no heating, so the full 3 degrees outside was felt, lucky we had thought to wrap up before hand.
It was a beautiful mass spoken in German only. A lovely way to continue the Christmas celebrations.
The town of Innsbruck was very quiet on Christmas ...
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! However, whilst being dangerous to land at due to the 8000ft mountains and short runway, it is without a doubt the most stunning approach I have ever witnessed! I would recommend visiting Innsbruck just for the incredible view from the plane!
