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.

The Hofburg Imperial Palace was a few metres from the Old town square and we reached in about 5 minutes. The entry is steep, but as included in the Innsbruck card which was 33Euro for one day. The state rooms are exquisitely decorated, and the Audio guide (free with entry) explains in detail their historical significance. Spend about 2 hours... More

The appartments are worth the visit plus you get to know a bit more about the relevance of the city in Austrian history. It is quite small as well so reserve 1.30hr to visit it

Nice elegant palace but did not enjoy it a lot due to restriction on photography and not really extensive exhibit. Am quite impressed though by the huge hallof thepalace with inricate paintings and frescoes.

The Imperial Palace was easy to visit, and well worth a walk through. Ceilings and floor in the great room were magnificent. Interesting use of mirrors to highlight the ceiling.

Definitely worth a visit! We were hesitating at first because the palace seemed too imposing. However it's well curated and the audio tour is informative and interesting. Do keep your overcoat on if you are there in winter as we were. There is not much heating so you would need to be well layered. However there are thoughtfully placed seats... More

You visit the rooms as they would have been experienced by 18th century guests. Take time to imbibe the experience.
