Stadtturm, Innsbruck

4.1
#8 of 65 in Sightseeing in Tirol
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
Climb to the top of Stadtturm for a view of the town's historic rooftops and surrounding mountains. Built between 1442 and 1450 as an extension of the former city hall, the tower's construction represented the growing self-confidence of the medieval bourgeoisie, sending a clear message to everyone of its preparedness to defend its right and interests. The 148 steps to the top of the tower may be a difficult climb for the elderly or anyone with mobility issues, and there is no elevator. Have your photo taken at the top of the tower and access it online after your visit. Be sure to save your entry ticket to use the restrooms at the bottom of the tower for free. Put Stadtturm and other Innsbruck attractions into our Innsbruck trip generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Worth a look see if you have the 24/36 hour pass.
  • it's an observation tower. just stairs up and down with a magnificent view from the top. just one board at entrance level with information so don't expect to be much informed here but still worth the 133 steps.
  • Interesting design with stairs. Well worth the visit. Great view of the city. Go on a Sunday at 11:30am and watch the band play from under the golden roof.
  • Center of the city. Good view from the top
  • A tower you can't miss!

Where to stay in Innsbruck

The Alpine gem of Austria, Innsbruck offers a surprising amount of reasonably priced accommodations for its size. Look for hostels and hotels in the medieval center. Another option is to stay above the city on the Hungerburg Plateau, where you’ll find Alpine hotels with panoramic views from each room. If you're traveling on a budget, look for lodging in private homes throughout the city: rent a room or the entire house for a local stay.
