We're standing on the Hans Psenner Steg, a foot bridge in Innsbruck, and we're looking down the Inn. The inclined structure over the river is the Hungerburgbahn, an inclined railway that goes up to Innbruck's Alpenzoo and then on up to the village of Hungerburg, where one can catch the cablecar to the Hafelekar, the peak above Innsbruck.

       The more conventional bridge in the distance is the Muhlauer Brucke from Innsbruck to Muhlau, on which we'll stand a few stops farther along. In the background are hills of glacial and landslide sediments, and highest and farthest back are the Calcareous Alps, including the Bettelwurf.
