The South side shows motifs to signify marriage & the North side side to signify death, which is an unusual significance,all related to the Royalty of the past. It is better to look up the Internet or, get a Guide or Guide book if you... More

Behind the story is a story and this one you should check it out, one side of the entrance is for a wedding and the other side is for a burial, both at the same day - great view from there to the skiing jump area

I actually rode past this lost on my motorbike in the darkness of evening so I went looking for it the next day. Well worth a look.

It is at the beginning of Marie theressien Strasse so it is hard to miss a must see sightseeing point in Innsbruck

It was another beautiful day in Innsbruck so we decided to have a stroll around town before breakfast, coming across the stunning Triumphal Arch, built in 1765.

Right in the centre of Innsbruck and some good cheap cafes nearby, so avoiding the more expensive ones.

It's just a small sized arch built in the 18-19 century. No stairways to go up. If you do some readups on this premise, you might be able to enjoy it. Otherwise it is not that interesting.

A Roman style triumphal arch, built by Empress Maria Theresa in 1765 to celebrate her son’s wedding. It is located at the end of the main road to the Old Town. It has beautiful statues on the top. Vehicles pass through the middle arch so be careful. It is a beautiful architecture not to be missed.
