Forecast

A strong low pressure area is situated over the Bay of Biscay at the moment. With warm air from the Mediterranean moving in at the front of the system, foehn winds will pick up. We will therefore see a dry mix of sunshine and clouds with relatively high temperatures for the season.

Tendency

The showers of a weather front will reach us Sunday night. Unfortunately, the front will be slow to move on and this is why we will have to deal with cloud and showers all Monday. The weather will then improve again, however.

Art History at Ambras Castle

Description

Ambras Castle

Ambras Castle is one of the main attractions in Innsbruck, the state capital of Tyrol.

Its cultural and historic significance is inseparable from the personality of Archduke Ferdinand II (1529-1595), who promoted the arts and sciences as a true Renaissance prince. He established the magnificent Ambras collections and had a museum facility built in the lower castle to house them, designed according to modern criteria from the time.

The current exhibition attempts to reconstruct the Archduke’s chamber of art & curiosities, his armoury, his collection of armour from famous heroes and his collection of antiquities. In Ferdinand’s time, the living quarters were located in the upper castle. Today, the upper castle is home to the Habsburg Portrait Gallery, which features portraits from Albert III (1349-1395) to Emperor Francis I (1768-1835) over three storeys. The collection contains over 200 portraits, including valuable works by famous artists, such as Lukas Cranach, Anton Mor, Tizian, van Dyck and Diego Velásquez. The ground floor of the upper castle houses a collection of late medieval sculptures and the centrepiece is the St George’s altar that belonged to Emperor Maximilian I.
