In the middle of Tirol’s Alpine landscape, one is treated to a close-up look at the lifestyle of prominent Austrians of the past, such as Empress Maria Theresa and “Sisi”: Innsbruck’s Hofburg, one of the three most important historical buildings in Austria, was once a favorite residence of the Habsburgs.

I haven't been inside this sight, but love the exterior design and architecture. Viewing it from both sides, and the dome too, which can be seen in a beautiful view down a smaller side street in the Old Town, offers a great architectural perspective!

We've seen the Palaces in Vienna and this was very different. The Imperial Palace at Innsbruck - the Capital of the Alps - once was seat of the Tyrolean sovereigns. This palace contains five themed museum areas: Maria Theresa's Rooms from the eighteenth century, Empress Elisabeth's Apartment from the nineteenth century, a Furniture Museum, an Ancestral Gallery, and a Painting...

I love castles so this was very interesting for me. The ornate architecture was gorgeous! My son was not so interested.

We didnt go around the palace or musuem as we had out share of it during thsi trip to paris but what we loved was the concert we were able to attend in the palace compound. It was lovly and we would recommend everyone to attend it if they are traveling around the same time.

Visited as included in the Innsbruck card, but a little disappointing really. A large exhibition about 'death art' and not a lot else really.

Great interpretation and well presented. Close to the city and peaceful enough and surprisingly human. Your visit could be one hour or maybe three. Lots of fascinating information about the relationships between Austria and Lorraine (through marriage). You get the feeling that the team here really are proud of their Hofburg and continuously work to interpret the Palace for the... More

Our family had only just been to Versailles, in Paris in June. The interior rooms in this palace are comparable but here you won't be squashed for the crowds. We visited on a Sunday, that may have made a difference. We were just as inspired by the decoration and grandeur of the rooms and paintings. The exhibition about the celebration... More
