City Tower

Innsbruck’s gothic city tower was built in 1442-1450 as part of the former town hall, it rises 51 metres above the old town. Formerly used by watchmen on the lookout for enemies or fires, it now offers fabulous views of the entire historical city centre and beyond.

Do & See

Anyone who comes to visit Innsbruck, the capital of the Tyrol region, will immediately notice the close coexistence of culture and nature. Located at the crossroads of Europe’s most important transport lines and nestled in the mountain ranges of the northern ‘Limestone’ Alps’ and the Central Alps, Innsbruck always was - and continues to be – a meeting point and platform for cultural exchange, commerce and science. In more recent times the city has also gained international reputation as an important sports venue.
