  • Hofburgs have influnced the city of Innsbruck. Just a few rooms but knowing the lifestyle of the rulers then is quite interesting. Elizabeth our tour guide made it more interesting. 
  • Seeing the Imperial Palace from the outside don't realize how much history and lived, storing seeing inside those wonderful salt. Out of all the "Giants" with frescoes depicting characters related to the House of Habsburg-Lorraine and specifically of the Empress Maria Theresa of Austria. Rooms Captivate related to Princess Sissi. To see absolutely. I suggest to equip the Innsbruck card.

  • Just wonderful! There are no other words for this beautiful Palace: worth every single penny of the business card. Beautifully restored and immaculately maintained, amid such beauty eyes do not really know where to land.
