    The City tower

    The city tower

    Favorite thing:
    We are in the Altstadt now. One thing you certainly have to do is climb the tower. Yes... I know!!! A lot of steps up the tower to get to the top! Yes, hahaha, I admit it : I was exhausted by the time I reached the top. But the view from here is really great. When you take a look at the next view pictures, you know what you will be missing if you are too lazy to climb it :-))

    The tower was built 1442-1450. This magnificent tower has a 16th century bulbous cupola. In former times the Tower housed a prison cell.

    The Tower offers stunning views over Innsbruck’s roofs and the surrounding Alpine scenery.

    Opening times: Daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

    In July/August/September: 10:00 am – 8:00 pm

    Favorite thing: Visit the Old city Hall tower to see the roofs of the old city and the mountains. They are beautiful. They say in Ukraine - The only things that are more beautiful then mountains are mountains that you haven't visited yet.

    Favorite thing: Opposite Helbinghaus is the Stadtturm, the city tower. It dates from the 15th century, and from the top you get great panoramic views of the city and out towards the Nordkette mountains. We went up to get a better view of the planes as they come in to land at Innsbruck airport - they fly so low they almost seem to be level with the tower!

    See further below for some great shots from up the tower.

    Favorite thing: must go up the city tower to enjoy the wonderful view. You have to climb up 187 stairs inside the "Stadtturm" that was built in the 14th century already as a watchtower.
