The arch was built in 1765 in honor of the wedding of Leopold to Maria Ludovica of Tuscany. It expresses the joy of the marriange on one side, and the sadness of the death of Francis I on the other.

At some point in the distant past, the Triumphal Arch in Innsbruck must indeed have been an impressive and striking royal monument. It is unfair, however, to compare Triumphpforte to the magnificent and similar structures in cities like Paris, Rome, Barcelona and Munich. In those...More

Unexpected in Innsbruck. Not as big as the one in Paris, nor the one in Berlin, but worth checking out when you're there.
