This column can be found on the main shopping street leading to Innsbruck's old town. It's quite beautiful but a little difficult to enjoy with all the shoppers around.

This is a nice area to be in and walk through. Take a lot of pictures from different angles at the column.

its a column in a very lively place and with a lot of eateries and roadside food and ice cream shops. Nice place to rest your tired feet and eat an ice cream or sip some wine.

A beautiful historic column with the Virgin Mary atop and with several saints, including St. Ann, at its base. It is in the middle of Maria-Theresien Strasse and is always featured in the iconic Innsbruck street scene with the snow-capped mountain in the background.

Kind of like everyone else has said it's beautiful, a nice place for a walk and shop, but not something you're going to spend a long time at.

Centered on the Maria Theresien Strassa, the great mall for strolling, eating, relaxing over coffee and shopping.

The Annasaeule is a beautiful column in Innsbruck. It may not look like much to tourists, but these columns are an important part of Austrian identity and culture.

This historical column (made by the Italian sculptor Cristoforo Benefetti) is nice to see because it's situated in the middle of Maria-Theresien Straße. No more, no less.

Another point of interest as you walk around the town. A good photo stop with the backdrop of the alps.
