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.

Nothing impressive but good to see. You can view the ski jump and main train station from here, as well as the street leading to the main shopping area.

This arch sits imposingly at one end of the Maria Theresien Strasse in Innsbruck. Saddened by her husband's death, she ordered it built. In fact it's known as the Triumphal Arch Maria Theresia.

We passed the arch on our walk to the main railway and tram station. The arch remind us of the the one in Paris. In fact it looked like the smaller cousin of the Arc De Triomphe. Its a nice backdrop for a photo and has trams and horse drawn carriages moving along below it.

A very simple arch but full of meaning and special interest especially to Maria Theresa, you have to look at those sculptures made at the south and the north sides, a celebration and the time of mourning, it depicts the marriages bonding and a tragedy coincided with it.

In the middle of a busy road junction including trams. Well worth admiring and studying its history. Traffic still goes under it.

Missed this on the way into the old town, but saw it on the way back to the hotel. It is a lovely looking arch and has a grandeur for its size. A good photo op.

An arch to rival Arc de Triumph and Marble Arch. We happened to see it as we were walking around. Worth a short stop for a photo opportunity.

It is located in the border of the old town and was built in 1765 for the marriage from Leopold (son of Maria Theresia) and the princess Maria Ludovica from Spain.
