Here are some images of my trip to Seefeld in the Austrian Tyrol via Innsbruck. As you can see, Innsbruck is the attractive provincial city surrounded by mountains that have a cable car and ski-jump. Innsbruck is famous for the building with the golden roof (Goldenes Dachl) in the city centre. Some of the 1976 Winter Olympic Games were held there. Click on images to enlarge.

I took a local train along a very scenic route from Innsbruck up to Seefeld (about 1200 metres).
The centre of Seefeld is shown.
Sometimes there are outside musical performances.

There is a sports centre with large interior and (heated) exterior swimming pool with a water slide. It is near a ski slope. You can see the Seefelder Spitze in the distance.

As well as the Hohe Munde behind Wildmoos. It has two peaks, the highest is 2662 m. I climbed this mountain in my teenage years.
The area around Hotel Seespitz which extends onto a small lake, set in the Wildsee conservation area.
My family used to own a time-share apartment in Landhaus Gabriela which we sometimes stayed at for a week in the summer during my school holidays.
A view I used to often look out to...
[Seefeld from Wildmoos]
This was where I learnt to ski on the beginners' slopes.
I am going up the fernicula to the Rosshütte and then hiking up to the summit of the Seefelder Spitze (2220 m) via Seefelder Joch with very nice views looking down into Seefeld and across to the Hohe Munde mountain.
Finally at the summit.
