First up was a walking tour of Innsbruck. The architecture was amazing and the most famous landmark in Innsbruck was the palace with the golden roof. Its actually copper and the roof itself is actually pretty small so that was a bit of a let down. From the city you could actually see apart of the ski jump used in the olympics. The next place of interest was a crystal factory. Here they can make anything and everything out of crystal, if you have the money. Some of the sculptures were amazing with dragon, lizards, unicorns etc
One funny sight was seeing Australians trying to ice skate. There were these little training statues and some people were holding on for dear life. Once we got back to the hotel we discovered that there was another contiki group who were going to be following us all through Italy. This group was no where near as loud as the previous group. They had this black american guy called dial tone (don't ask me why) and he was absolutely hilarious. Some of the group mingled down in the bar and some of us had a room party with our newly acquired schanpps. That stuff was very nice and went down well.
Breakfast the next morning was horrible, cereal and stale breadrolls. After breakfast we were on the bus again ready to head to some warmer weather in Italy.
