We're standing on the north bank of the Inn in Innsbruck, looking at the Emile Bethouart bridge, known to most as the Innsteg. It's a bridge across the Inn for pedestrians and bicyclists. We're looking downstream, and the Calcareous Alps rise up in the distance.|
The Innsteg was renamed in honor of Emile Bethouart in 2003. Bethouart was the general in command of French troops occupying Austria after World War II, and he is remembered for his efforts in reconstruction during the post-war years. The renaming was also part of Austria's effort to emphasize its European ties as part of the European Union, a concept still not universally admired in the Tirol.
