  • in the heart of innsbruck, impossible not to visit it, ticket of a few euros and wonderful interiors that are worth to be seen
    View original
  • We visited the Imperial Palace in anticipation of the opening of markets in the different squares. Very beautiful and interesting, there are furniture in all the rooms, but only the view of the room of the Giants and the private apartment of Princess Sissi deserve. We did not use the audioguide but visited and read all explanations in Italian.

  • The Imperial Palace is located right in the city centre and visit flea markets is a must visit. The ticket is 9 euros, including the use of audio guides, wonderful Giants ' room where he represented (is a copy of original) the whole extended family of Maria Theresa of Austria, striking the chapel built where the morgue was set up by Emperor Consort is not to be missed the rooms of Princess Sissi. The visit does not steal a long time but it's a shame skip it.
