Austria: Bergiselschanze

On Tuesday I got fourteen cards from Austria.

One of them shows the Bergiselschanze in Innsbruck. The Bergiselschanze was used for the Winter Olympics in 1964 and 1976. It got its current form in 2003 by the architect Zaha Hadid. In 2012 the opening ceremony of the World's first Winter Youth Olympics took place on the Bergisel. 
I bought this card on my way to Milan and sent it during my holidays in Austria.
