Old Town Tips (53)

Old Town Innsbruk

visitors are attracted by the historical environment of the Old Town with the renowned Golden Roof as focal point. The Habsburg kings held court in Innsbruck and you will find many historic sights, the most important one being the Ambras castle with its good art collection. Everywhere around Innsbruck's heritage of two "golden ages" can still be found: the first around 1500 under the Emperor Maxmilan I, the second in the mid-1700's under Empress Maria Thérèsia.

TRIUMPHAL ARCH

We arrived at Innsbruck early afternoon,about four o'clock,and then we started a nice walked tour in the old town and other parts of the city with a local guide.Our first stop was here,at Triumphal Arch,that is located at end of Maria Theresienstrasse.

This beautiful arch was built by Emprees Maria Theresien for commemorate the marriage of her son,Leopold II with Maria Ludovica from Spain.

My first impression of the city was very good,because Innsbruck has some beautiful landscapes of old town with the nice Alps mountains behind,as you can see on my picture,you'll find lots of snow at top of the mountains.

Downhill and back in town

Innsbruck's Old Town is a reminder of the way the medieval town once flourished with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings.
An important point of the Old Town is the broad strip of Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse, which eventually opens out into a central plaza lined with arcades.

Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse

Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse is one the most beautiful roads of the Altstadt (old town) of Innsbruck. It crosses the whole historical center and it is flanked with beautiful buildings with porticos, houses with the decorated loggiatis and with beautiful insignias in beaten iron. Very interesting is the Gasthof weisses Kreuz, a house of the fifteenth century where Mozart lived.

Katzunghaus

This house was built in the late XV century.The facade reliefs are made by the workshop of Gregor Tuering and represent musicians, stage artists and various types of tournaments. The reliefs are here to remind us that, once upon the time , the old city square was hosting Knights tournaments and battles.
In the ground floor is located a exquisite coffee , probably the most frequented place in the old town. If time permits it , go for it! Make sure to visit the toilets as well, they are worth it - huge mirror glass in baroque frame and other cool stuff,same as the look through the window and the furniture in the upper floor.

Walking down the streets

The old town of Innsbruck is one of the few places where no cars are allowed. You need to travel by foot or by these really cute trams. To discover the place,just take a few hours off and walk around,look into the shops,stop by at a local cafe and enjoy some amazing coffee.

Thats how I discovered Giant Street.The museum at the Medical University found specimen bones of 2 really large persons who are believed to have lived in Austria 1000's of years ago. Thats how the street was named Giant Street. Large giants have been placed outside the building and its very easy to miss the street if you dont keep your eyes open.Trust me,my aunt has been living in Innsbruck since the past 20 years and she didnt know the street existed till I told her about it!

Another street similar to this exists called the Fairy tale street where outside each building a figure hangs from the window like Rapunzel or the Big Bad wolf,Hensel And Gretel. Takes you back to your childhood days..the magical world of storytales. Its a must visit.

The left side of Herzog-Friedrich-Straße

On the left of Herzog-Friedrich-Straße there is the interesting Gasthof Goldener Adler (golden eagle) with a beautiful painted facade: it is held to be the most ancient inn in Austria. In front of the Gasthof you can see the Altes Regierungsgebaude. It is the ancient building of the government which was built in the fifteenth century and modified in 1689 by J.M.Gumpp.

Old Town Charms

Innsbruck is probably visited as much for its mountain scenery as it is for anything man-made within its boundaries but it still has a certain charm to its clean narrow streets and varied architecture. The main shopping area of town is particularly scenic and throngs with tourists clamoring for another angle of cuteness with each turn.

Of course, if you must see the top attraction in town look here
