    Habsburg Portrait Gallery

    The spanish Hall, built between 1569 - 1572, is one of the most important freestanding halls of the Renaissance.
    This picture shows details of the "Habsburg Portrait Gallery". This part of the castle is only to be seen during the summer season.

    Armours

    Armours

    There is a very extensive collection of different armours, well worth to spend some time to admire this.
    The Armouries contain very rare examples of armours from the 15th century which originally belonged to Emperor Maximilian I.

    Art collection in Castle Ambras


    Besides the armouries, there is also an art collection. Some pieces are so beautiful! Like this one for example. And it is not only beautiful to look at, but it also has a secret little safe.

    Group picture of the VT meeting in Innsbruck


    At the end of the tour we took a group picture. Our guide was so sweet to make a picture of us. From left to right : Åke (akeke), Me, Paula (goingplaces), Ariel and Linda. Bill and the cute dog Turtle were waiting outside.

    Samourai Armour in Castle Ambras


    The gold lacquer emblems showing among others a dragon proved that this armour belonged to the Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu. (1542-1616)

    Only 13 armours of that kind which were mostly exported to Europe have been preserved in Japan.

    Shoe collection in Castle Ambras


    Hahaha, I can't help it, but I loved this part of the exhibition! I love shoes, and it was fun to see this shoe collection. The pictures aren't so good, because of the reflections in the window. But I couldn't resist adding them to my page.

    Little armour ;-)


    Hahaha, I thought that this little armour was a lot of fun. It is a kids armour, it looked so cute! Hahaha, but you have to look at the details of it!!! If you look closely you can see something that the other armours don't have. That was only for kings, hahaha. I think they practised very safe sex in those times already, LOL.

    This renaissance castle was the residence of Archduke Ferdinand II. He was a collector of fine art and had also a very interesting armour collection, which can still be seen today.

    Funny shoes ;-)



    It is hard to see in the picture, but I thought these shoes were so much fun. It is not a normal shoe, but you can see all the separate toes! Hahaha, isn't that great!

    I love looking at these kinds of details, like this beautiful gutter. Isn’t it great! I can't imagine such a thing on a normal home, but it just looked so fitting here at Ambras Castle.

    Armouries in Castle Ambras


    In this room there is a huge display of all kinds of armouries. It's quite impressing when you walk into this room and see all those armours and horses.

    Get to Schlöss Ambras. Not so much for the painting museum as for the view you get over the city and the Alps (see intro pic)
