Stayed at the Hilton which is no more than 250 feet from the Arch. That makes the arch a great place to start your walking tour of the old town as it is at the head of Maria Theresastrasse. We got to see the arch coming and going---it is much more impressive when lit up at night.

If you are in Innsbruck do take the time to see the arch. Make sure you view both sides. One side is very joyful commemorating a wedding. The other side commemorates the death of the groom's father, who died two weeks after the wedding. If you can, visit it at night.

It is to be found at the end of the main Street, the maria theresia strasse, so you won't miss it. Nothing really special about it.

It was probably well positioned when erected, but now seems a little out of place as the city has grown up around it. The arch records a wedding on one side, and the death of Emperor Francs I on the other. Not worth going out of your way to visit, but if you’re passing take a look.

Walked by this and read all of the inscriptions. It's a beautiful piece of art. Didn't get a chance to see it lit up at night, but heard it's beautiful!

It is a nice arch, but does not deserve heading for it on its own. It can be a side dish for your stroll in Innsbruck, and it is not far from the train station

but it is a cool picture on a clear day... with the alps in the background I had to stand in the street to get the best picture. It's not far from Old Town

Looks nice when walking by. It is on the outskirts of the historic part of town, not too much to see except to take a picture of it.
