As a photographer, I have an Instagram account, of course. This app has probably become the most popular among social media. The hunt for the next great Instagram photo is very important.
Some time ago I already introduced you to a few of my favorite photo spots in Innsbruck. This time I’ll show you a few new, partly somewhat hidden locations for your next Instagram photo. I wish you a lot of fun with the motifs, while discovering and always good light for perfect pictures.
Adlers Hotel is visible from far and wide in the city. It is located in the Pema Tower not far from the train station. The hotel offers a cafe on the 12th floor and a rooftop terrace on the 13th floor. The view of Innsbruck is terrific, both during the day and in the evening. A really great spot to take a photo or selfie or two. WOW factor and drink or a delicious meal included.

Ambras Castle in the south of Innsbruck offers all kinds of opportunities for great photos. The castle park is worth seeing at any time of the year. I like it best in autumn. The many deciduous trees change color and provide a beautiful backdrop. A visit to the interior of the structure is also recommended. The Spanish Hall is a particularly beautiful motif.
The palace park offers numerous motifs for great photos Especially in autumn I enjoy my free time here. Highly recommended! The Spanish Hall is a dream motif.
The Waltherpark is located in the district of Sankt Nikolaus. To get there, simply cross the Inn River from the Old Town. The park is located on the opposite bank of the river. From here you have a wonderful view over the Inn to the old town and the cathedral Sankt Jakob. At the end of the park is a pavilion with a silhouette of the opposite side of the river recreated in iron. This spot is particularly beautiful by day and by night. Best time of day: just before sunset, as the old town is illuminated by the sun. Also very beautiful at dusk.

The Hofgarten in Innsbruck holds great motifs, especially with the pavilion and the pond in the middle of the garden. This spot is beautiful at any time of the year, I find the autumn with the many bright colors the most impressive.
An oasis in the middle of the city – the courtyard garden The pavilion with its open large windows is a super motif, for example for portraits.
The sandbank in Kranebitten directly behind the airport runway is not only perfect for relaxing and sunbathing, it also offers spectacular opportunities to take photos and selfies with landing planes. These fly here on final approach over the Inn River and whiz by just a few meters overhead.

Innsbruck courtyards and squares
As beautiful as the facades of the very old houses in Innsbruck are, you should also take a look at the inner courtyards. You will be amazed at the rare perspectives that open up. The courtyard of the Hofburg, for example, the courtyards behind the old town houses, or as here at the passage between Museumstraße and Universitätsstraße – a completely different perspective on the imposing Jesuit Church. Keep an eye out for the modern architectural buildings, because some of the glass facades reflect wonderful motifs.

Meanwhile very well known is the so-called colorful “Selfiewand” in the passage between Maria-Theresien-Straße and Sparkassenplatz. The wall with the colorful shining balls, which change the color combinations again and again, offers itself downright for a Selfie. Actually already a little cult in Innsbruck and a perfect photo for Instagram.

These were just seven suggestions for a little photo tour of Innsbruck and a nice addition to my earlier article about it. A continuation will surely follow. Keep your eyes open, Innsbruck is full of motives! Happy Instagramming and photographing.
