Attractions

Why not stay a few days longer? Innsbruck awaits with many attractions and cultural highlights. It's a city worth taking time over. After all, the pleasures of life always have high season when set against the stunning backdrop of the Nordkette mountain range

Golden Roof

Covered with fire-gilded copper tiles, the Golden Roof is the city's most famous landmark. Emperor Maximilian had the alcove balcony added to the former residence of Duke Frederick IV on the occasion of his marriage to Bianca Maria Sforza of Milan. With its 2,657 fire-gilded copper tiles the roof marked what was then the centre of Europe. Today, the Golden Roof building houses the Golden Roof Museum where visitors can find out about Emperor Maximilian's august life and deeds.

Maria Theresien Strasse

Looking north from Maria Theresien Strasse the view over the commanding peaks of the Nordkette mountain range is quite astounding. They sit, enthroned, above the Golden Roof and define the cityscape. Maria Theresien Strasse's many street cafés and beer gardens, its magnificent architecture and enticing shops are an open invitation to stroll, take time, gaze and shop. Definitely worth a visit are the modern Kaufhaus Tyrol department store and the Rathauspassage shopping arcade.

Innsbruck's Hofburg Imperial Palace

You can breathe in the splendour of yesteryear in the Imperial Apartments of the Hofburg Palace. Following recently completed refurbishment works, these rooms have reopened to visitors in all their 18th century splendour. Hundreds of exhibits in the Imperial Palace Museum provide an insight into life at court. Take one of the many guided tours on offer to find out more about the history of the palace. Changing exhibitions in the foyer gallery and special shows in the Gothic cellar also form part of the varied programme, which also includes concerts and theatre performances. The Imperial Palace's central courtyard provides the setting for Innsbruck's popular summertime Promenade Concerts.

Hofkirche Court Church

Many artists, including Albrecht Dürer, Peter Vischer the Elder and Alexander Colin, contributed to making of the Court Church, which is the most important Imperial monument in the Alpine region. The extensive funerary monument encompasses an empty tomb with a figure of the kneeling emperor and 24 reliefs depicting his deeds on a sarcophagus at the centre of the nave. There are also 28 (of 40 that were originally planned) larger than life-size statues of his ancestors situated between the columns of the nave and at the entrance to the choir. The Renaissance organ on the right wall of the choir by Jörg Ebert of Ravensburg is one of the world's five most famous organs, and the largest almost fully preserved Renaissance organ in Austria..

City Tower

Rising up 51 metres, Innsbruck's City Tower was built between 1442 and 1450 as an extension of the old city hall and, together with the Golden Roof, it ranks as one of Innsbruck's landmarks. The viewing platform at a height of 31 metres is accessed by climbing 148 steps. Fabulous views over the city are the reward for tackling the arduous climb.
