Amras and Hungerburgbahn

Amras

When we opened the windows of our hotel room, Eufron said "That's a farm smell", so the next day I walked around the village. There was a smell of farm because there was a farm - with a sign, milk 24hours a day. I continued my walk to the no. 3 tram turnaround, back past the church and the local school, past the back of hotel and the large sign "Night Entrance" in English and German.

Hungerburg

Breakfast, bus to MuseumStrasse, no. 1 tram to funicular, up funicular to plateau. At bottom was a large round building. We talked to another couple (from NZ) at the top funicular station. They said it was a panorama of the big battle of Bergisel (at the other end of tram line 1) in 1809, against the Bavarians, but was very very very hot inside, so we did not go. After descending the funicular, we took no. 1 to the end of the route (to Bergisel), and waited for the no. 6 to Igls.
