The tiny windows with white red covers of the Ottoburg make an interesting contrast with the surrounding buildings. Built in 1494 ,and used presently as a hotel it is a monument of the Tirolean fight for freedom from 1809.

Ottoburg was built as a fortified house in 1476. For a long time nobody was living inside and so it was called "oed burg" and finally Ottoburg - at least this is the explanation you will find on a small plate outside of that building.
Today Ottoburg is a nice restaurant - see my restaurant-tips !

This is a residential tower that was built in Gothic style in the 15th century. It was built next to the city wall, but it's not so much left of this wall today. Maximilian I ordered the building and it was named after the last Duke of Andechs, Otto VIII.
The facade is gray, but the red and white shutters around the windows brighten up the building. The purpose and the owners of the building have changed many times through the years, but there is a excellent restaurant at the top that have been there for a long time. You should also take a look at the parlors, with the cross vaults and stellar vaults.
This is the oldest preserved building of Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse. It's located in the Old Town and you should take a look at it when you are visiting the nearby attractions. There is also a monument to the Tirolean freedom fighters of 1809 in front of the house, and it was created by Christian Plattner.
The Ottoburg is home of one of the famous restaurants in Innsbruck.... The prices have been a bit higher than elsewhere and so we didn´t tried.....but I like this little castle with it´s colorful window shutters.
For me this is one of the nicest buildings of the old town. Look at the shutters in front of the windows, aren't they nice? It's funny how the Austrians paint doors and windows in Austria colours everywhere!
Oldest building in the Herzog-Friedrich-Straße. It is built in the 15th century at the city wall. Today there is a restaurant in one part.
