Overview

In the middle of Tirol’s Alpine landscape, one is treated to a close-up look at the lifestyle of prominent Austrians of the past, such as Empress Maria Theresa and “Sisi”: Innsbruck’s Hofburg, one of the three most important historical buildings in Austria, was once a favorite residence of the Habsburgs.

This is located right in the old town and an easy visit. It is smaller than other palaces we’ve visited but a good one to complete the set in Austria. We used our Innsbruck card to gain access which was great value.

There doesn't seem to be much to see but if you get the auditorium you won't miss the small things you may just walk past, such as the hidden Chinese decoration. The giants hall tops it all

If you need to complete the Habsburg baroque palaces, then this is another, equally ornate but built on a smaller scale.

This palace was the HQ of Empress Maria-Theresa and her husband. It has recently been thoroughly restored to its magnificent baroque appearance and is not to be missed. Photography is not allowed.
