Overview

In the middle of Tirol’s Alpine landscape, one is treated to a close-up look at the lifestyle of prominent Austrians of the past, such as Empress Maria Theresa and “Sisi”: Innsbruck’s Hofburg, one of the three most important historical buildings in Austria, was once a favorite residence of the Habsburgs.

This palace was the HQ of Empress Maria-Theresa and her husband. It has recently been thoroughly restored to its magnificent baroque appearance and is not to be missed. Photography is not allowed.
