One of the famous sights of Innsbruck, the Triumphal Arch commemorates a marriage as well as mourns for a death (pun not intended). The marriage being celebrated here is that between Archduke Leopold and Maria Ludovica, a Spanish Princess. Sadly, that was also the year the father of the groom unexpectedly passed away and that’s two sides of the Arch depict us extreme emotions. Unlike the other Arches built in those times, the Triumphpforte was made with blocks of stone. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Innsbruck itinerary 2 days.

a great piece of art with many hidden stories. it gives a great feeling after entering the city.
A beautiful piece of history, it was built in the year 1765. You can stand underneath the arch, touch the stone and also pass through it! Its also a stop on the hop-on hop-off tourist bus, and quite close to the old town area. A quick spot that can be covered while visiting the other more important spots.
Worth visiting, not far from a large car free pedastrian square with many restaurants, cafes, shops etc. Ornate and very large and of historical significance to the city.
This is a spectacular monument, which honoured the wedding of Erzherzog Leopold with Maria Luisa in 18th century. Especially when sunny, this stone monument shines with beauty demonstrating craftsmanship typical of its time, particularly on sides thereof. The monument also pays homage to Erzherzog's parents, Kaiserin Maria Theresia and especially his husband Franz Stephan along with relatives from the House of Lorraine.
Interesting if you know the backup story :)
