Today we started a guided city tour to the capital of Tyrol with our customer John.  Here are a few impressions of this lovely city:

Triumphal Arch - built in 1765 on the occasion of the wedding of Archduke Leopold, the second son of Empress Maria Theresa and Francis Stephen of Lorraine, to the Spanish princess, Maria Luisa
St. Annas column
In front of the golden roof - the most important sight in Innsbruck
Completed in 1500, the roof was decorated with 2,657 fire-gilded copper tiles
And now - 148 stairs waiting for us
Good workout for the oncoming food
Viewing platform on the city tower of Innsbruck
Innsbruck Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of St. James
