Forecast

An area of low pressure is situated over Central Europe! Low pressure does not necessarily mean bad weather as each low contains areas of rain as well as brighter areas. For today we should be pessimistic, however! Unfortunately, our region is at the heart of the main area of precipitation and we will therefore get thick cloud and frequent rain.

Tendency

Tuesday will bring changeable weather conditions with a mix of sunshine, clouds and showers. Wednesday will be a real dream day!

Almost everyone who hears the name of Innsbruck immediately thinks of the Golden Roof, and a famous personality is inextricably linked with this special attraction: Emperor Maximilian I (1459–1519). He not only had the glittering roof built and transferred important court offices to Innsbruck but is considered, by virtue of his marriage policy, as the founder of the House of Habsburg and was soon called the "first European". 

He always regarded Innsbruck as his actual capital. So it’s not surprising that the many buildings he had built all over the city still remind us of him 500 years after his death. But he was not the only Habsburger to establish a memorial for himself in Innsbruck over the centuries. 

Experience first hand a piece of European history and follow in the Habsburgs’ footsteps!
