We took a trip to Innsbruck over Thanksgiving weekend. It was perfect because the Christmas Markets had just opened, yet it wasn't too cold for this Arizona Native. The trip was fabulous and I fell madly in love with everything this city has to offer. A highlight was taking the cable cars up to the top of the Austrian Alps and looking down at the city. This is a must see if you are ever in the area! They even have a ski lodge at the top for you to enjoy a cold beer while taking in the view.

Another noteworthy site would be the Innsbruck Stadtturm. If the view doesn't take your breath away, the 148 stairs to the top definitely will! If you don't mind a little exercise this is a must see!


I was most moved by the St. James Cathedral. I loved walking around the church with my my head tilted all the way back to try and take in every detail. The organ in the back of the church was probably one of the most impressive I have ever seen. I can only imagine how heavenly it sounds when it's being played...sigh....

Innsbruck was the perfect little weekend trip! We had a blast exploring the little streets of the Old Town and going to our first Christmas Market (I am forever a Nutella Crepe addict... yummm). Innsbruck, you're beautiful.
