Innsbruck Region

Historic buildings

A walk through Innsbruck is also a journey through the centuries: from the medieval old town with the Golden Roof in the center, you walk past richly decorated baroque facades to Maria-Theresien-Straße. This is where noble families once had magnificent palaces built. We present these and other important Innsbruck buildings below.

The “Waidburg” was originally built by Wendelin Yphofen, the former mayor of Innsbruck, but soon became the property of Emperor Maximilian. As a keen hunter, he had the castle converted into a hunting lodge and enjoyed spending time here, especially when fishing in the nearby lake. The Gothic chapel on the second floor of the building is a particularly impressive highlight. The Waidburg is now home to the town hall, the library and a tourist information point.
