Extensive collections of paintings, flags and weapons from the time of Andreas Hofer, and from the history of the Tyrolean Imperial Regiments, especially in World War I, can be seen here. On the ground floor you will find the Memorial Chapel, built in the commemorative year of 1959, in which the Tyrolean honours book is kept – with the names of all fallen Tyroleans who died 1796-1945. The viewing platform behind the museum offers a wonderful view of the city with the Nordkette chain of mountains behind it.

Hofburg Imperial Palace
At the end of the 15th century, when Emperor Maximilian I filled the palace with magnificent court life, the building already had the dimensions of today’s Hofburg Imperial Palace in Innsbruck. Empress Maria Theresa had the Hofburg rebuilt in two phases to create a monumental, late-Baroque residence.
Among the many show rooms, with fine furniture and paintings, you will find the Riesensaal (Giants’ Hall), which is considered the most splendid feast and ceremony hall in the Alpine region. You will even get to feel the once stately life up close!
Following extensive renovations, the entire Hofburg is again open to the public. The Giants’ Hall, the most prestigious ballroom in the Alps (with all portraits of Maria Theresa’s imperial family), the Guard Hall and the Lorraine Room gleam in renewed splendour. The same can be said of the court chapel and sacristy.

Ambras Castle Art History Museum
Ambras Castle is one of the most important attractions in the Provincial Capital. Its cultural and historical significance is inextricably linked to the personality of Archduke Ferdinand II (1529-1595), who as a true Renaissance sovereign was a patron of the arts and sciences. He founded the magnificent Ambras Collections, and had a modern museum facility in the lower castle built in which to house them.
Today’s exhibition attempts to reconstruct the Archduke’s “Kunst- und Wunderkammer” (chamber of art and curiosities), his arms and armouries as well as his Hall of Antiquities. During Ferdinand’s time, the upper part of the castle was the living quarters. Today it houses the Habsburg’s portrait gallery over three floors with portraits ranging from Albrecht III (1349-1395) to Emperor Franz I (1768-1835). More than 200 portraits are exhibited, among them precious works of art by the likes of Lukas Cranach, Anton Mor, Tizian, van Dyck and Diego Velásquez. A collection of late medieval sculptures is housed on the ground floor of the high castle, with its most striking feature being the Georges Altar of Emperor Maximilian I.
