One morning while I was in Innsbruck I decided to go for a walk before the Travel Bloggers Unite conference got started. As I roamed and wandered this city that captivated me, I noticed a large gathering of people under the Goldenes Dachl or Golden Roof.
Even though I had not clue what was going on, I did stop and watch as it progressed for a few minutes.
The flag the men are holding says “Zur erinnerung an das Gründungsfest” and I have no idea what the meaning is. I thought it would be some kind of festival but when I translated it online I got “In Remembrance of the Foundation Laid.” Whatever that means!?! If anyone knows please let me know in your comment below!
I couldn’t stay very long but this unexpected “event” was one of the special highlights Innsbruck offered me! Seeing locals in traditional clothing always brings a smile to my face even more so when they seem to be enjoying every minute!
I highly recommend early morning wandering!
What surprises have you run into during an early morning walk?
