Take photo move on

It 's just another column---take a photo and move on down to the Golden Roof. Can't say much more than that.

The column is the main landmark of the Medieval Maria Theresiastrasse. It’s easy to be used as the unmistakable meeting point. Also might be considered as a main topic for pictures in this area, although the whole street is quite interesting from this point of view.

Kind of like everyone else has said its beautiful, but not something you're going to spend a long time at. Pose for a nice picture and keep walking.

It's a nice looking column... That's about it. No more. It's a nice picture on a clear day. It's nice to check it off the list and you move on. Don't go out of your way...

This is a cool structure with a great view of the alps in the background. We were there on a cloudy and rainy day so there was low visibility but still a great view.

It is quite pretty to look at sitting in the middle of the square. The tourist guide we had had only minimal information and I'll bet that with the right book, there was likely a very interesting history to go with it.

This is a truly unappealing column, located in a square in Innsbruk's old town. The column itself if filthy and its surroundings are as well. We passed by the column during the evening, as well, only to find a bunch of local teens, drunk beyond belief, urinating on its base. What a disgrace.

They used to be a structural achievement but as architecture advanced such structures are not so impressive. While colorful it is used more as a landmark then a remembrance of any event. You will come across this column as you wander through the Old City. I have a 32 gig disk on my camera and I still didn't take a... More

An interesting monument to gaze at for a couple of minutes, in the center of Innsbruck's Old Town, especially if you know it's place in Austrian history & the commemoration of its independence from Bavaria. Not worth walking out of your way to find. There are more impressive monuments in town. It would be a much nicer photo op if... More
