"The Imperial Palace" Hofburg Tip by sim1
Hofburg, Innsbruck: 3 reviews and 3 photos
This is a picture of the Imperial Palace. You can visit the palace, but somehow it didn't appeal to me. Right next to the palace is the 'Sacher cafe' in which you can taste the famous Sacher Torte. Hahaha, I didn't even try this! Hmm, quite remarkable, because I love cake. But I think that I didn't give it a try, because I felt like a tourist trap to me.
But there is something special about this picture. Do you see the bit of sunshine? Well, I think it is the only bit of sunshine I saw in Innsbruck. And it lasted for only a minute, just enough for me to quickly make this picture.
The palace was built by Archduke Siegmund the Rich in late Gothic style around 1460. The palace was converted by Empress Maria Theresia (1754-1773). It has a splendid Giant's Hall, and ceiling frescos by F.A. Maulbertsch and portraits of the imperial family.
