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.

The Hofburg was right in the old town not far from the Golden Roof. Worth a visit as it is beautiful inside and outside. Halls were beautiful but won't take long to complete the tour

We visited this palace today and it was jaw-droppingly beautiful! The great hall can be admired for 15 minutes or more (and we have a toddler who was happy to stay that long, so that's saying something). Beautiful.

This is a beautiful small palace to visit filled with pieces of art, furniture and more of the history of the Austrian royal family. When in Insbruck don't miss it!

Worth a visit. Loads to see and very educational. Staff were friendly and helpful. The main hall is a sight to behold, worth the visit all on its own.

There are some beautiful rooms to see at this palace but it is disappointing to not be permitted to take photos. Plenty of interesting facts about the royal family.

...if you had visited similar palaces before, lets say just in Austria, like Hofburg in Vienna or Residenz in Salzburg, you'd fine this one nothing special. But it's still wort a visit, it will take you about an hour. It's mostly Habsburg history...

We visited this palace to complete the trifecta that is the Hofburg in Vienna, Schonnbrunn and this palace. While not as richly furnished as the other two it was still a large and well adorned/frescoed palace. Tour comes with an audio guide but there are...More

Very interesting audio tour in english. Fantastic decor and some furnishings. Lots of history. I was there in August which is a busy time, but because it is so large it did not feel that busy and a very short queue for tickets, 5 minutes....More

The building is beautiful from outside, although at the time we visited in July, there was some construction/ restoration going on around the vicinity. The entrance ticket is not expensive and there is discount available for teens ( or free, I don't recall). The lady...More
