The arch was built in 1765 in honor of the wedding of Leopold to Maria Ludovica of Tuscany. It expresses the joy of the marriange on one side, and the sadness of the death of Francis I on the other.

We stayed at NALA Hotel and to our surprise, the Arch was just a couple of blocks away. You can't miss it as you head to Maria-Theresian Platz. The architecture of it is mesmerizing. Definitely a great photo op, if nothing else.

As its located in the middle of street it's not easy to have enough time to closely check it out. However it's still worth seeing.

Given the size of Innsbruck's old town, this is a rather imposing bit of architecture, which dominates the far end of Maria-Theresianstraße/platz. It's nothing like the Arc De Triomph or even Marble Arch, but it holds its own given its place in Innsbruck's history. If you're wandering you'll see it and it's worth a photo.

This arch is like the entrance into the old part of the city. With a fantastic history, a monument of happiness - for the queens sons wedding and also saddness that her husband died on the same day. Lovely to see

The Triumphal Arch is worth seeing and photographing but unfortunately like other similar monuments that straddled a once less busy road it is now completely hemmed in by traffic.

Look, it's not THE Arc De Triumph, but it is a lovely pice to see. The architectural lighting at night is truly beautiful and like most old buildings, it come alive visually when the sun goes down

Was in Europe for business and made a quick stop in Innsbruck. This archway seems to be the gateway to the old city. The colors of the buildings behind the arch a bright and vibrant and you can see the mountains clear as as day. Really a beautiful spot and a really cool little city

The Triumphal Arch seems to be the welcome sign to the old city. It stands proudly in the square and looks like a Roman arch. It's beautiful with its many statues. Empress Maria was the one that envisioned this arch and this monument was intended for joy. However during her wedding, her husband Kaiser Franz I died and now this... More

Good photo point. If you find your way to this point then its straight up the long road towards the mountain and you end up at the golden roof. The arch is clean and well kept. Worth a look
