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.

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

The Annasaule is a nice photo opportunity while walking down Maria-Theresien-Strasse when sightseeing in Innsbruck, especially on a clear day with the Alps in the background.

Approximately half way down Maria-Theresien-Strasse (heading toward the Golden Roof and the Old Town) stands the column dedicated to the defeat of the Bavarian army in the 18th century. The pink and white marble or granite column is capped by a statue of the Virgin Mary and its base is surrounded by statues of St. Anne and other patron saints... More
