Amsterdam, the Netherlands to Innsbruck, Austria
Our flight from Amsterdam flew across Germany before turning towards the valley where Innsbruck is located for landing around the Ammersee.
We realized the plane was approaching Frankfurt after our lunch.
The “left knee” of the Main River where the city of Miltenberg is located. Miltenberg is in Lower Franconia, Bavaria in Germany.
Agricultural lands and patches of forests dotted the landscape underneath us as the plane continues to fly through Bavaria, Germany.
This prominent road that cuts through the landscape is the E43. This section is located around an area near Ellwangen, a town located in the east of Baden-Wurttenberg, Germany.
Farmlands and rivers exist side by side with railways and roads in Donau. The plane is turning southeast towards Ammersee where it will perform a u-turn towards the valley where Innsbruck is located.
We got a glimpse of Augsburg, the third largest city in Bavaria, Germany. A bit of trivia, compared to any other region or city in Germany, Augsburg has the more legal holidays.
We flew past a town named Kissing, Bavaria, Germany. I bet the name is a source of amusement for some English-speaking tourists to Bavaria.
Magnificent sights of Ammersee, Wörthsee and Pilsensee, a cluster of three lakes. Ammersee is the largest among the three and sixth largest in Germany.
Located just south of the lakes is Oberpfaffenhofen Airport (OBF).
Wolfratshausen is a town in the district of Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen, Bavaria, Germany.
Bad Tölz, located on the Isar River. The town is the administrative center of the Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen district in Bavaria, Germany.
And we entered Austria at last! Achenkirch is located north of Achensee, the largest lake in Tyrol, Austria.
The beautiful Austrian Alps in Tyrol.
The Inn Valley where Innsbruck is located.
Here you could see Achensee in the background and the town of Jenbach below.
Mountains flanked the north of the Inn Valley.
The municipality of Gnadenwald is located high up the mountains.
The Nordkette overlooking Innsbruck.
Budget airline or not, I had a comfortable flight with transavia.
EasyJet flies here too!
Pity its summer, no snow (unless you go to Stubai Glacier). Innsbruck is a popular skiing town. Expect lots of crowds during the winter periods.
Hope you enjoy this long pictorial of the flight to Innsbruck! For now auf Wiederschauen!
