This is close to our house and has a lot of grounds to walk around. We find new ones every time we go. The cafe is good value and the lake for feeding the ducks is great for the kids
This is a converted castle that became a Renaissance palace and is full of 15th century armor and weapons from the 30 years war. There is a Spanish Hall that should not be missed. Archduke Ferdinand 11, continued by Maximilian 1, did the conversions of the castle. There are many rooms, including the Emperors' room, Chamber of arts and curiosities,... More
Visited here in August. We caught the Postbus from Innsbruck train station ( Stop D ) which stops outside the park entrance - it's then a pleasant stroll to the castle entrance. If you show your bus ticket at the castle entrance they give you a 3 euro per person discount. The Spanish hall is superb and we also enjoyed... More
This is an old castle with lots of paintings and artefacts. But if you don't care so much about history , then it wouldn't make much sense to you. But the lawns outside are good. It's not a must visit site as its a little outside the city. But if you have the time and innsbruck are then. It's okay.
A bus ride takes you to this castle just outside of town. The large rooms are loaded with paintings and artifacts relating to Innsbruck's aristocracy during centuries ago. Also has some beautiful gardens. But, if you're not a history buff, you may be somewhat bored.

We expected more from a castle...it's not even a average castle if I compare with the castles we have in India. It's more of a museum with lots of paintings of the royal family. Avoid it unless you have interest for paintings. It's also bit far from the city and has no other attraction nearby.
We loved Schloss Ambras. It was like nothing I had ever seen before with beautiful timbers and art works. It wasn't presented as a living building with rooms full of furniture but there was so much amazing artwork and detail that one couldn't help but be stunned....it is a huge structure and has a separate area full of armour and...

The grounds are worth walking around but I found the paid entry (10E) too steep for the displays. The armory was interesting with many knights and weapons. Beyond that unless you are very interested in Austrian aristocracy (not Hapsburg's) don't waste your time or money. Parking was also very difficult as they only have space for about 15 cars.
