We're standing on the Inn Bridge and looking into the Altstadt, the medieval Old Town of Innsbruck. We're looking down Herzog Friederich Strasse, and Innsbruck's most famous landmark, the Goldenes Dachl or Golden Roof, can be seen in the distance. It's a porch dating from the reign of the Emperor Maximillian in the late 1400s. |
The Ottoburg, another medieval feature, is the building on the left. Its red-and-white shutters area common feature throughout Austria, in that they mimic the colors of the Austrian flag. In Tirol it's an especially appropriate color scheme, because they mimic the Tirolean flag too. A Tirolean banner-flag can be seen haning on the right side of Herzog Friederich Strasse.
How about a sidetrip to see the Goldenes Dachl (the Golden Roof)? That page will give you a link to resume the full trip with next image in the regular full series.
