This place was pretty big, and the audio guides really added to the experience. Perhaps it's best to not listen to ALL of the audio prompts unless you want to make a day of it, as there are quite a lot of things to listen to, but this was definitely the most informative of the historical attractions in terms of...

We went in here because we had the Innsbruck card and it gave us free entry. It was worthwhile seeing but we would probably not have gone in had we to pay. There was a separate Alpine exhibition which was worth seeing and rather interesting.

Entrance was €6 and the tour including entry was €10 so I took the tour. The palace was beautiful and I found the tour excellent it helps you understand the context and throws in some bits you wouldn't necessarily find out. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and seemed to have a real love of history. There was also a... More

This was included in our Innsbruck pass. It was interesting but certainly doesn't have the splendor and furnishings of other more famous palaces. There are better palaces to visit and spend your time if you are planning to explore Austria and Germany further. Vienna and Munich have great ones to visit.

If you have not visited the Hofburg in Vienna, this is a nice palace to visit, if you have visited the Hofburg in Vienna, it is still a nice place to see!

Having already done Vienna it was a continuation of learning more about the Hapsburg dynasty. There aren't many artefacts in this Hofburg (unlike in Vienna) but the audio guide is excellent - informative without being rambling.

The palace just look like any big house from the outside, but improves when you enter the Court yard. There are some very stunning room and some nice ones so it is worth a visit if you are in the vicinity

The Innsbruck card is a must, a no brainer, if you want to go up the mountain once. As an additional activity, with the card, this was interesting. Not normally our cup of tea, but we had time to visit, late in the day. The inside of the palace is beautiful, and you get a real insight into the wealth... More
