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.

Small by comparison to the Arc de Triomphe, this landmark can be admired while walking past. Cars drive through it and it is more part of the city's architecture than a tourist attraction.

This is an arc close to the Maria Theresien street. You may visit this on ur way to the Street. It's not all that great. But can be done.

Buy an Innsbruck pass for access to all public transport including Hungerburg funicular and cable cars. This also include access to all museums and hop on hop off bus.

You can find it on your way to city centre. Nothing special. Just a gate from where you can see cars passing by. I between many buildings you even notice at once

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

We walked pass this Triumph Arch during our visit to Innsbruck last week and it was not much to write home about. Being spoilt with magnificent historical buildings from other places around the world, this was not an impressive one. However, if you happen to...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.

Quite a few cities have an arch like this. It is worth a photo, but it is not really much different from any such arch anywhere around the world, including some in the U.S. It was right next to my hotel, so yes, it was...More
