Germany day 3: (Innsbruck) Austria and (Vipiteno) Italia

Posted Dec 12 2009 12:00am

Hello people!!! I’m back to Germany after spending the weekend at Vipiteno skiing and falling down. ;) But let’s talk about that in the next post. First let me do the recap of day 3 which was full of fun, countries (from Germany to Italy crossing by Austria) and local meals!

The day we went to Munich, Mara bought me a typical Bavarian snack: Lebkuchen

its texture is between a cookie and a cake, flavored with essence of almond. Really tasty and dense like a bomb (a small bite of it goes a long way)

Every friday Mara and Gunther go to a local market where fresh produce and meat are sold as well as local meals. At this stand, we had our mini lunch.

and Gunther in addition to the soup had Kirchweinudel (a fried cake pudding)

Then we head to Vipiteno Italy and we stopped at Innsbruck (Austria), a very cute place.

We shared a Kiacha with sauerkraut, a fried dough (slightly sweet) with fermented cabbage

I loved the narrow streets and the unique style of the buildings.

There were a lot of people despite the cold weather. Everyone had some food or drink at hand while chatting with friends.

A typical drink in this area is Gluewein, warm wine. It has a intense flavor. I felt my throat and chest warm right after the first sip.

After 3 hours of drive we finally arrived Vipiteno, an Italian comune in the province of Bolzano-Bozen in the region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol. It is the main village of the southern Wipptal, and the Eisack River flows through the medieval town.

We went to Mara and Gunther’s favorite pizza place called Sportbar for dinner

Mara had Schupfnudeln (ravioli kind of pasta filled with spinach)

Gunther had pizza with arugula, parmesan and ham

I had pizza primavera

It was DELICIOUS!!! I really like Italian pizza’s crust, not greasy at all, chewy and thin. Anyone can easily manage to eat the whole thing! ;)

For dessert I had Tiramisu

Mara had vanilla ice cream with warm raspberries sauce

After dinner, we went to another bar for a drink. It’s located at an old basement.  Look how cool is its interior

A typical local drink called Veneziano: mixture of aperol (licor) and proseco

It’s slightly sweet, citrus and very sexy ;)

It was a long day but a lot of fun!!!

Stay tune for the ski recap! ;)

Side note: I was not expecting much about this trip because I was never a big fan of German culture, people and food. But half way through this short trip, I’m surprisingly like everything I’ve seen, met and tried. I like the order and cleanness of the place, politeness of the people, its food culture which focus on eating local and spending great amount of time preparing food, even for a non-meat eater like me, I’ve been enjoying a lot its food :D
