To be fair if there was a plaque explaining the significance of the column I must have missed it but it is a good meeting point if nothing else.

This monument is situated in a nice street but the monument itself is no so special. In my opinion definitely not a highlight of Innsbruck.

It is located in the centre of the Old Town. It is under renovation at the moment. Pity! Well placed in a square near shops, bars and restaurants. The religious statues on the column are striking. The column has a beautiful backdrop of the mountains.

Even for those who care little for history, this column adds drama and beauty to a central traffic-free zone in Innsbruck. I find it particularly impressive from the rear, as in the distance, on a fairly clear day, you can see the mountains beyond it.

With its busy neighbors with lines of stores, restaurants and shopping malls, here stands the St. Anna's Column, history told that this place once ruled by many years of Hofburg empire and also the beautiful mountains at the back drop.

The center of the Maria Theresien Strasse is marked by the St. Anna's Column. Together with the old city houses around, the column is a landmark that gives Innsbruck its historic atmosphere. Definetely worth visiting.

A very charismatic street with a beautiful statue with a great meaning. The statue has great ornaments and fits in the area. Great street and view of the mountains. Have a drink here and a look around 😉

Halfway between the Golden Roof and the Triumph Arch stands St Anna’s Column which commemorates the successful resistance to the Bavarian army in the early C17th. Worth pausing to take a photo.
