Not bad for a quick visit. Check out the Armoury for a good collections of weapons and armour, but not much else to see. Jump on the bus and have a quick look if you have time.

I liked everything about my visit to the castle. The museum was very interesting and entertaining, and laid out perfectly. The castle was well taken care of and really gave you a good feel for its history. The grounds were absolutely fabulous and seemed to go on forever. Loved seeing the peacocks roaming freely.

You can easily get around the grounds with a stroller but to view the collections I would advise leaving your stroller with the ticket office and then put your kids in a carrier. The castle is a 10 minute bus ride from the train station. We mainly... More

I loved the museums inside this old castle - wander past some of the best collections of medieval armour in the western world, and through to the very odd collections of freakishness (tip: look out for one huge suit of armour, a painting of the owner can be seen further on). There are amazing paintings, art objects and things tht... More

The castle has beautiful grounds/great landscaping. The internal rooms are more like art galleries with a great armory. Worth a visit if you are in the area. Using the Innsbruck card, we got on the sightseer bus to get to it.

We walked to the Schloss from were we were staying in Igls. The building and gardens were beautiful and we spent quite a while exploring around them. We did not go inside the castle as we thought the entrance fee was well overpriced. Worth a vist if you are in the area.
