Before you go see it, take the time to read a little about it because it makes looking at it mean so much more. It's situated at a major intersection, so you have to watch for cars while you are looking at it.

We went to visit the Arch on previous Sunday. It is not so bussy so you can see the Arch without hundreds of cars driving through and crazy tourist running to the road. It is to make pictures from the left side so you do not have signs there.

Not much to do at the Arch other than admire its amazing architecture. However, it does serve as a beautiful backdrop when taking photos! I definitely recommend this place if you are doing a self-guided walking tour around Innsbruck.

Historically these monuments have significance. I modern times these architectural structures are elementary. The location of this arch also lends to its interpretation. Not part of Old Town this looks strangely out of place with modern and utilitarian structures around it. Not something I would say you need to see unless you like arches or have some kind of personal... More

Triumpahal Arch is around 500m from the Innsbruck railway station and 600 m from the city centre. If one does not want to walk take tram no 3 from the stand c of rly station and triumphforte is the next bus stand where the arch is. The walk from the arch to the city centre is also a good experience... More

As triumphal arches go, this is not one of Europe's greatest. It's not even the only arch in old Innsbruck. But because it is rather small, it's easily photographed. It's free to see - so the price is right!

The fraffic just moves around it. I doubt half notice it. It is a busy street built many years after this monument.

The Triumphpforte is a nice photo opportunity while walking down Maria-Theresien-Strasse when sightseeing in Innsbruck.
