Innsbruck is a real beautiful place and I have already visited this place twice in 4 years and I'll surely return here soon! Almost all the sights in Innsbruck town are within walking distance of each other..if using public transport (tram/bus) get down at museumstrasse or maria Theresen strasse. The imperial palace is real pretty with its quota of paintings,... More

A must see in Innsbruck! Lovely palace with a nice painting collection. Good way to learn about the Hapsburg history. Try the Sacher Cafe next door after the visit!

Great paintings and really good history. You can get audio translator of the different pieces of art and exhibitions. It was a very beautiful place and easy to spend a few hours There was also a exhibition on at the same time which was really interesting, about the history of mountaineering

Used our Innsbruck card to see this Palace. Easy to spend about and hour here and learn all about the history of the Hapsburgs. Queens apartments were very nice though almost understated when compared with the ornate decor of Versailles.

I guess we expected a little more. It was nice, but I suppose we were spoiled by what we saw near Vienna.

It is always interesting to see how the people of power lived in days gone by. They certainly spared no expense in their lavish accommodation! As this was one of their many homes, and not one that they spent a lot of time in, the number of rooms and things to view was limited. This museum was included in the... More

Our visit here was included in the Innsbruck card - we had audio-tours in English. The palace was very nice and the history was enjoyable. I liked learning about Maria Theresa and her style of leadership.
