“In the middle of the street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

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

“Triumphpforte”

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

“Triumphpforte (Triumphal Arch)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Built in the fashion of the Roman arches seen in the Forum, the Arch depicts joy on one side, the wedding of Maria Theresa's son, Leopold II, and sadness on the other, the death of her husband Franz, the next day.

If you arrive in Innsbruck by rail. cross the street after leaving the station, turn left, go to the corner (Saluner Strasse) turn right and in a couple of blocks you will arrive at the Arch. You will now be on Maria-Theresa-Strasse. AND, if you're in Innsbruck for the Christmas season, after seeing the Arch, head on down Maria-Theresa-Strasse to the Christmas Market there and block or two further, the Christmas Markets at the Altstadt (Old Town) and at Marktplatz...especially beautiful at night.

II won't say the Triumphpforte isn't worth a visit, I made it a point to stop and see it, but if you're pressed for time, missing this sight won't ruin your trip.

“not a must see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

it's a nice arch, but not very interesting, it's difficult to take a nice picture of this arch, but if you are about to enter the Maria-Theresien Straße than it's the perfect place to start this route at :)
