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.

  • Beautiful find! The grounds are stunning with great views of the mountains and city. Layout of museum is easy to follow. Something to keep you busy for an hour or two, great for quick stops through Innsbruck. Find the peacock, its beautiful!

  • Beautiful grounds and an interesting castle! Was great in autumn, nice for a walk. We also had a good look around the castle (included with our Innsbruck Card), which had some interesting history and many paintings.

  • Castle is closed in November. Thought, territory is nice and still opened, but! there is no toilet opened on the whole territory and it's premises.

  • Exhibition is very interesting, but I think they can show more of the castle itself, like how rooms looked for example.

  • Ambras Castle offers a nice view of the city of Innsbruck but the castle isn't that special on its own. The gardens are small but beautiful with lavish peacocks hanging about and it's worth the walk up there
