  • Pretty spacious area, beautiful views over the city, mountain-photos and so, and that way. Many exhibits, there where to wander. Especially beautiful photograph with high points-beauty.

  • Interesting place, particularly liked a long underground passage and well. There are many places where you can make nice pictures. An adequate price. In several expositions: Knight's armour, the history of skiing.

  • The visit of the fortress is actually a must, but not exactly cheap. For 10 euro you can "self-guided-tour" company including up - and downhill with the railway. So you must still the stairs at least yourself. Unfortunately the restaurant was and the organ Concerto of the Heldenorgel (12.00) over. But with the submitted plan you may find itself quite rightly and the one or other interesting experience. Best overlooking the city, the Inn and its surroundings but has made us!

  • Cool place with a cool view over the city. Definately worth a visit when you're done skiing.
  • Lots of history. Stories well illustrated. Free organ recital excellent value. Views aplenty centre of town.
  • Very impressing! It is much bigger than it looks! Very good idea was to create an app with voice descriptions of some places. What was missing was english descriptions of some posters. They were only in German so it turned out that in some places I only walked and looked for images as I didn't understand what descriptions says.
  • Huge castle in the center of town, with plenty to see inside including a museum and a beautiful organ. Also has great views of the town and surrounding area since it is on top of a hill in the center of everything.
  • Worth a visit if you're there.
