Roadtrip #1 : Innsbruck, Autriche (Day 2)
What we saw from our window For this second and last day in Innsbruck, I was motivated and wanted to make the most out of my day. I got up at 6:30 with a beautiful and warm sun shining and I went out for a good walk while my husband was still asleep. The view from our windows was wonderful. I could get use to that… Really.
Then I got back to the hotel and we had a good breakfast/brunch thing with a lot of bread, cheese and ham. AS YOU CAN SEE. We were so full that we didn’t even eat lunch this day. I had a cranberry tea and that was the best thing ever.
Then we packed our stuff for the day and went to explore the city. While we were walking to the city center, we found a little super cute market.
First stop of the day, the Ferdinandeum tyrolian museum. That museum is big ! There is a ton of things to see, like an old musical instruments exhibitions or a lot of paintings.
After the museum, we visited the imperial garden. Apparently, gigantic chess game is a discipline right there.
This garden was very nice to make a pause during the day, pretty and relaxing.
Around 3pm, I wanted to eat something cold because the sun was shining and we were really hot. We made a stop at an ice cream shop and got ourself a big old bowl of Spaghettis ice cream with vanilla ice cream, chocolat and bananas. That was delicious. We also got a pistachio scoop and a tiramisu scoop. YUMMY.

We saw a lot of street artists, as we did the day before, including this woman painted in silver who didn’t move for hours. Must be a tough job I guess.
Then we decided to go up in the mountain to see the panoramic view of Innsbruck. We went up till the little red flag on the above map but you can get much higher (we wish we would have done it buuuut it is pricy, I tell you).
To go to Hungerburg, you take some sort of a train/underground that climb the mountain for a good 10 minutes.
We go up ! When you reach Hungerburg, you can see a little Austrian house. It is a bar/restaurant. I admit we had a beer there.
And now onto the panoramic view… Breathtaking.
Innsbruck from Hungerburg Then, I went in a local supermarket to do some grocery shopping. I got some nice things such as this sausage, the taste was clearly strong, not what we are used to in France. But delicious !
Then, diner time was here. The group wanted to eat a pizza. I was not absolutely content with that. Why would you come to Austria to eat pizza ? BUT we were a team and I had to sacrifice my need for more sausage for a pizza. Yeah.
Anyway, what we ate was delicious and really generous in quantity. Mine was a goat cheese/ spinach pizza and my husband got the pepperoni/chili/bellpepper one. I think it was like 10€.
With that, I drank an Apfelschorle (which became my favorite drink ever and I miss it so much), it is a fizzy apple juice with almost no sugar. Perfect.
With our tummies full, we returned to the hotel to sleep. The next day, we woke up at 7am to drive the 500kms that separated us from Vienna.
Next time, I take you to Vienna with me!
