Thetraveljunkie.org – When in Innsbruck, Austria. We got Innsbruck Cards from Innsbruck Tourism Board. One of my favourite memories was climbing up the Nordkette, part of Austria’s largest nature park, the Karwendel Nature Park, and can be reached directly from Innsbruck city centre in just a few minutes with cable car! The breathtaking 360° view leaves a lasting impression, Innsbruck on one side and Tyrol’s most extensive conservation area on the other.
We spent close to 4 hours walking, hiking and climbing on all kinds of snowy, grassy, rocky, muddy, icy surfaces.
When we reached the top – with the elevation of 7401 feet – we looked down and the world below was the most spectacular view experience. It was magical.
“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better. -Albert Einsten
Nature gives to every time and season some beauty of its own.
As we walked down the other side of the mountains, we would slide, like crazy teenagers, down hills of loose grey pebbles, for metres at a time, jamming our shoes deep into the ground to find our footing.
As we walked, we watched the weather clear up around us. We took lunch at the restaurant and then a little breaks to just sit on the grass, talking, laughing and just watching the elements transform in front of our eyes.
It was just amazing. And it was one of the best days of my life.
Stay tuned for more of our adventures in Innsbruck, Austria.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
