Alpine Convention cities
A perfect connection of bus and trains took us from Mäder to Rankweil and then to Innsbruck, seat of the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention. The brand new cableway from Congress to Seegrube and Hafelekar took the group to the Nordkette, with an impressive view of the Inn valley and the city of Innsbruck. In the afternoon the visit to the main office of the Permanent Secretariat. The group has been introduced to the Alpine Convention, meeting the staff of the Secretariat and Peter Hasslacher, Head of the Department Spatial Planning / Nature Protection of the Austrian Alpine Association. In the late afternoon the journey continued towards Bolzano Bozen.
