Yet another castle with a love story behind it, after the Beast’s castle in Beauty & the Beast the Schloss Ambras will be your second favorite castle. The Schloss Ambras is essentially a 10th century castle that was revamped by the Archduke Ferdinand II for his bride, a commoner. Ferdinand II was given permission to marry Philippine Welser as long as the married couple would live outside the city limits.

Painting a perfect picture of a castle perched on a hill, the Schloss Ambras, a symbol of love if you will, makes for quite a heart-warming visit. The fortress turned castle sports a Spanish Hall 43 meters in length and a sunken bath that was the sign of royalty and wealth.

The castle for tourist purposes has been divided into two sections- the upper castle and the lower castle. The upper section houses serves as an art gallery where portraits of people of the Habsburg House whilst the bottom half of the castle is more like a museum where all the armaments are up on display including the Art & Curiosity Cabinet. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Innsbruck itinerary 2 days.
