“A fabulous view”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This little tower is ideally situated to get the best views of the city, especially the golden roof. Entry was free with the Innsbruck card and there is a photopoint at the top. It can get a bit tight if there are alot of people visiting at the same time. There are a few stairs to climb but it is definately worth it.

“Step up to the Top”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

At first glance you may think the Stadtturm is another old tower until you realize you can step up to the top for panoramic views of the city - 148 of them to be exact. The climb on pie-shaped steps is not particularly difficult although it is damp and dark as I expected. It was raining when I reached the top. The walkway around the top is narrow; my open umbrella made it difficult to circle the top. Fortunately, there were only two of us in the late afternoon which made it good for photographing each other. The views of the Alps and the city below were memorable.

A bonus of the entry fee was a free pass to use the bathroom! Most European bathrooms require a fee to pee. But stick your ticket in the machine near the payment window and voila, the turnstile admits you to the bathroom. Otherwise, fork over .50

“Not essential”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Having so many places to climb up in Innsbruck, Stadtturm only worth if you have time and have bought the Innsbruck Card (which I highly recommend: free transport, even the turistic bus, Pastcherkoffelbahn, Hungeberg funicular and Nordkettenbahn, Schloss Ambras, Hofburg, museums, etc).

“A great photo moment!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

When you're in the centre, you have to check out the 360 views which you can take in from this tower.
It cost a few euros, however will leave you smiling after looking at some of the best buildings in Innsbruck!

“Stadturm - Great Views”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Although you have to walk up quite a few stairs (over 150), you will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views & photos of the city and mountains in the background. I enjoyed this much more than looking at the golden roof, which i felt was a waste of time. The cost was 3 Euro.
