Accessibility at the Imperial Palace
Wheelchair accessible. At the end of the 15th century, when Emperor Maximilian I filled the palace with magnificent court life, the building was already the size of the Imperial Palace we see in Innsbruck today. Many years later, Empress Maria Theresa had the Imperial Palace converted into a monumental late Baroque residence over the course of two construction phases. The great hall, known as the Giant's Hall, is probably the most beautiful room in the building. It is considered to be the most splendid ballroom and banqueting hall in the Alps and contains all the portraits of Maria Theresa's imperial family. Other wonderful spaces include the Guard Hall and Lorraine Room and the Court Chapel and Sacristy.
