Oktoberfest & The Alps
Day-by-Day Itinerary - Page 2


Innsbruck, capital of the Habsburg Empire under Maximilian I, is today the capital of Tirol, one of Austria's nine provinces.
  The Tyrol is 4,883 square miles, about the size of the state of Connecticut, with a population of about 600,000. Innsbruck is a comfortable city of about 125,000.
  Mountain peaks surround Innsbruck and the views are spectacular from almost any spot in the city.
  Innsbruck preserves its medieval core, the historic Old Town with narrow, irregular streets.
  The Goldenes Dachl (Little Golden Roof) is the city's landmark, built in 1500.
  Don't miss the Hofkirche, with its 28 larger-than-life bronze statues, called "The Black Men," and the tomb of the Tyrol's most famous patriot, Andreas Hofer .

Tribute to Andreas Hofer

  Berg Isel is the site of the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympic games -- and the scene of three famous battles fought during the struggle for Tyrolean independence from Bavaria in 1809.
  The giant statue of Andreas Hofer proclaims his fight for "Gott, Kaiser und Vaterland."
  Innsbruck is a good place to buy lederhosen or a dirndl to wear on the rest of the tour to put yourself in an alpine mood.

  We cross the Gerlos Pass and leave Tirol for the Austrian province of Salzburgerland, about twice the size of Rhode Island with a population of about 500,000.

  The delightful village of Krimml is located in the middle of the vacation region of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The region of the Krimml River Valley has 23 glaciers with an area of over 10 square kilometers.
  Krimml Falls is Europe's highest waterfall. The Krimmler Ache flows through a narrow wooded valley, then plunges 380 meters (1250 feet) in three tremendous steps. Facing the falls is the village of Krimml, majestically situated at 3530 feet, high above the Salzach River.
