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

This is a very interesting place to visit - a must see if you are staying in or near the old town in Innsbruck to see how the culture and city has developed over the last few centuries.

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

The nicest part was going round by myself and taking my time but disappointing that parts were closed. Strange to hear rock music drifting from the theatre outside. The audio tour was OK if you flick through the boring bits

If you buy the INnsbruck Card from the Tourist information bureau then admission here is included- I would recommend buying the card as it gives you flexibility and means that if you aren't that keen on one of the attractions you choose, you've not wasted any money. I had not originally planned to go in the Hofburg but was drawn... More

Disappointing as so very little is open. It must be a small fraction of one per cent of the building. A frescoed hall and a few private room of the Empress sissy. Cost is €6for OAPs. a free audio guide in English is provided with a lot of information but it doesn't say why so little of the building is... More

Happy to have spent the hour or so visiting the palace. It's central to the town and has a good audio tour. Admission was included in the Ïnnsbruck Card" which I thoroughly recommend getting.
