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.

  • One of the castles where you can really spend a quality afternoon. Has many authentic historical items to view and also a lot of architecture to admire. Takes you back decades in the past to relieve the how aristocrats used to spend their days. Nice views of Innsbruck.

  • You can easily spend half a day here. There is a lot to learn from the exhibits in the castle. The area around the castle is scenic with huge trees and snowy mountains . There is also an area near the castle where you can find peacocks and peahens

  • At this time of the year the castle is so nice to visit. Not so many people are around and the landscape is amazing. You can walk around the park and enjoy the silence. On one side you really can imagine how life was at the time that the castle was still in use by Ferdinand the II.

  • Stunning grounds and external features, unfortunately the limited internal access and poorly presented historical object reduces the overall fun of visiting. The armoury is probably the best presented area but limited information makes it hard to engage.

  • Love Ambras Castle. Learned a lot about Innsbruck history. Really enjoyed all the art pieces. Garden/park area was beautiful too.
