    Next to the Old Town Hall in the heart of the Old Town, lies the City Tower (51mt.) which dates from ~1450. A "short" climb up to 148 steps will take you to a platform 31 meters above the town. Here time seems to standstill as you enjoy a magnificent view of the whole city and his mountains that ranges.

    The Altes Rathaus is the ancient town hall built in 1358. To its side you can see the Stadtturm, the civic tower, built among 1442 and 1450; it was restructured in Renaissance style in 1560 while the bulb dome and the clock were put in 1603.

    Great view on Innsbruck from City Tower

    In the same Herzog Friedrich Street, you can admire the City Tower (from 1450), from which to enjoy a wonderful view on Innsbruck (open summer 10am-6pm, winter 10am-4pm).
    I read the clock was the largest of the world (TBC!).

    Many cities have their tower offering a panoramic view, but nowhere was this more appreciated than in Innsbruck. The views from the top of the Stadtturm (City Tower) are breathtaking: the Goldenes Dachl, Mariahilferstrasse, the Inn, the mountains... You name it! It's all there.

    The Stadtturm, which was built from 1442 to 1450, is 51 m high, although the platform is only 31 m high. It is a 148-stair climb to the top of the platform.

    The Stadtturm is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except from June to September when it closes at 8 p.m.

    For another great view of the city you can take the 148 steps up the Stadtturm (City Tower). This might seem a crazy thing to do on a hot day, but in actual fact the tower itself is so cool inside you'll be happier walking up the dozen or so flights of stairs than standing outside doing nothing. The views from the top are excellent, and give you a real idea of the city's layout; so a good first stop after you arrive. The viewing platform at the top is a little cramped, however, and you have to keep pushing the flags out of your face, especially if it is a little windy.

    The tower was built in 1440, but the bulbous onion shaped cupola on the top was added in the 16th century.

    The tower costs 2.50 and is open from 10:00 until 20:00 in the summer, and until 17:00 in the winter.

    City Tower - Great views of a great city!

    by Julian_K Written Feb 10, 2005
    A view from on top of the tower - breathtaking!!

    Well worth the small cost is to climb the tower located in the main street of the Old Town (you can't miss it). Fomr on top there are fantastic views of both the city and of course the alps surrounding Innsbruck. A definate must.

    Climb Stadtturm to see the Goldenes Dachl

    Stadtturm (City Tower) - Innsbruck, Austria

    The Stadtturm is Innsbruck's old City Tower, an annex of what used to be the City Hall, probably used mainly as a watch tower (to look for fires). Built at the middle of the 15th century, the architecture is very nicely done, with the colorful clock and the nice round shaped part which you can see when on the upper terrace. I guess this is a must climbing the hundred and something steps (free with the Innsbruck card .. but I can't remember how much without it .. anyway you should get the Innsbruck Card).

    City tower

    Stadtturm

    The Stadtturm is right next to Goldenes Dachl, and they are both in the Old Town like many of the other attractions in the city. It's quite easy to recognize the tower and you can easily see it from the surrounding areas.

    It was built in 1442-50, and was one of the most unique town hall towers at that time (and probably still is). The roofs were originally pointed, but in 1560 they were replaced with rounded roofs instead. It was used by watchmen who were looking for enemies, fires or other dangers.

    You can go inside the building and climb to the top. From here you have a excellent view of the Old Town, especially Goldenes Dachl, and the rest of the city with the mountains around.

    THE TOWER

    by Hosell Updated Oct 30, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A good idea if you are walking by Innsbruck's Old Town,is go to see this beautiful medieval tower.It is called "The City Tower"(Stadtturm) and I think that is the highest tower in all the city.

    Don't hesitate to go up to the belltower by an interior and steep stairs,I didn't had the time and the chance to go up there,but some members of my group did it and they told me that there is a beautiful view of a big part of the old town,and also of some of best places and monuments of the city.It is located just next to The Golden Roof.

    View from the Stadtturm

    The City Tower is the tallest structure in the Old Town and gives you a wonderful panorama of the city. Innsbruck doesn't have as many brilliant rooftops as Prague or Rothenburg, but the vistas of snow-covered mountains are breathtaking.

    Veiws of and from the tower

    The Stadtturm, or city watchtower, from the top you can see views of the mountains. Of course you can! After all, they're all around the city.
    Built around the 1440's it also gives fine views over the old town or Aldstadt, especially of the gold balcony shown elsewhere.
