We stopped briefly in Innsbruck for an afternoon to walk around. Innsbruck is located halfway between Munich and Verona (Italy). We didn’t make it to either one this Fall, but we will someday.

It’s kind of picturesque…don’t you think?

We opted for an easy meal to please the kids. They got plain-jane cheese pizza, and I got some spinach with feta.

We stopped for awhile in front of the Innsbruck Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of St. James. It’s an 18th Century Baroque chapel, and it created a great backdrop for a few photos.
