Magnificent monuments and modern architecture, historic art and top sport performances, open-mindedness and traditions:
The Tyrolean provincial capital has always been a versatile place. Innsbruck is a town that has grown over time and had its first heyday around 1,500 A.D. The rulers of the royal and imperial monarchy started to realise their architectural ideas and now visitors can enjoy a journey in time with monuments dating back to Gothic times, the Renaissance, the Baroque times and the Classicism: The “Golden Roof”, the “Schwarzen Mander” statues in the Hofkirche church, the Hofburg imperial palace and Schloss Ambras castle represent the time of the Habsburgs. Lovers of modern architecture and arts find trendsetting examples of modern design, e.g. the BTV-Stadtforum by Heinz Tesar or the Bergisel ski jumping tower by Zaha Hadid.
