Fairy Tale in the Alps

“Use every moment, dance every dance, you can’t take anything with you”
— Undeciphered Text on Goldenes Dachl

It is fortunate that magical places such as Innsbruck have survived everything the twentieth century threw at them. This small town is something out of a fairy tale. I wish I had grown up in a wonderful, quaint town like this.

So many great people from so many diverse fields have come from Innsbruck. How this town has managed to produce so much greatness is something that has still eluded me. Must be something about greatness inspiring more greatness.

There are a multitude of great small inns to stay a while, including one in the old town where Mozart once stayed. The Viennese coffee houses are aptly described as places where time and space are consumed, but only the coffee is found on the bill.
