Looming over Innsbruck is the Renaissance-style, Ambras Castle. If you love arts and antiques then the castle is well worth a visit for its collections of portrait and armour, the Chamber of Art and Curiosities and the palace gardens. You’ll find over 200 paintings in the Hapsburg portrait gallery, some of which belonging to the famous artists Lukas Cranach, Titian, van Dyck and Diego Velásquez.
Nestled in the charming Old Town is Innsbruck’s most characteristic landmark, the Golden Roof. This gold-plated roof over a 3-storey balcony was built for the Emperor Maximilian I and his wife to sit out and watch over any tournaments or events taking place in the square below.
Visit the impressive HofKirche, the imperial church and the empty tomb of Emperor Maximilian I. Surrounding the ornate marble tomb are 28 larger-than-life-sized statues of the Emperor’s real, and legendary, ancestors including King Arthur. If you’re a fan of Austrian history, this is not to be missed.
