The Tower was built between 1442 and 1450 as an extension of the former City Hall. It's one of the most important historical landmarks in Innsbruck.
From 1529 onwards, men and women were Tower guards. They lived in the tower and had duties to do, like watching for enemies and fires as well, announce the hours of the clock and keep the peace at night. The Tower was manned until 1967.
It's located in the main square of the historic Old Town.
Feeling fit? Yes? For 3euros you can climb 148 steps to the viewing platform, at a height of 31m.

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.
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!).
Climb the 148 steps of the Stadtturm (City Tower) and you will catch a breathtaking view of Innsbruck and the Alps surrounding the city. This is also a great spot to catch a glimpse of the magnificent Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof) from 31 meters up.

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.

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.
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).
