The Hofburg Imperial Palace Innsbruck is one of the most important buildings in all of Austria. It is here that the residence of the local Tyrolean rulers. The palace has retained its original appearance, but now you can see only a few rooms that have been restored and repaired in accordance with the Middle Ages. According to a global project, it is planned to restore the palace.

Once in the middle of the 15th century, there was a palace built in the Gothic style, later, in the early 16th century it was enlarged, and in the middle of the 18th century completely rebuilt by the Empress Maria Theresa in her favorite Baroque style. It was then substantially modified the facade and the central staircase, was also built out a baroque south wing of the building and all betrayed a more modern view at the time. The restructuring of the palace is managed architect Johan Martin Gump.

The palace consists of two wings, which are private apartments, reception halls and ballrooms, as well there is also a private chapel. Originally, it housed a common room, but her husband died unexpectedly Mary Terazije Emperor Franz I and widow ordered to remake a room in the chapel. She herself after this incident never again appeared in the palace. Just in the palace survived the original Gothic tower, built during the reign of Maximilian I.

Now available for a visit several rooms, including a magnificent ballroom with amazing wall and ceiling paintings, made court painter Anton Maulpershem. There is a picture of Maria Theresa and her family, portraits of other rulers. The hall remained luxurious marble floors and rich gilded stucco decorations.

Some restored rooms assembled furniture of that time, which illustrate the life of a rich class epoch of Habsburg. All of the palace at the time was made in the Rococo style.

The palace is open to visitors daily. The entrance ticket for an adult will cost € 5.50 per person.
