1440 Zurich to Insbruck 1806
Around Reichenburg, still in Switzerland, I saw some tank traps in the grass next to the railway line. Haven't seen tank traps for many years.
The section through the Aarlberg pass to St. Anton was an amazing climb. We passed over some high viaducts and saw the snow on many mountain peaks.
We walked to the hotel in Insbruck. It is in a great location in the old city and Mozart, among others stayed here. I wonder which room he had!
After checking in we went for a walk through the old town. It was pretty busy and there were some crazies, the most notable being a man with a hat shaped like a pink pig and carrying a blow-up naked woman. We decided to have a drink and a meal at a quiet place on a side street. We sat outside. It started fine but the rain came on and we had to finish inside. We had rabbit and Wiener schnitzel.
