900 years , thats the time Innsbruck exists, 650 years, thats the time the Habsburg family rules in middle Europe. You see, a lot of years - worth to speak about it. We visit the imperial-palace and the imperial-court church, both are absolut highlights in Innsbruck.
Gold, Marble and pomp - but also interesting stories and things worth to know - this tour offers a lot of different views.
As a real local I can give youi also a lot of tipps and information about Innsbruck and the country around. Guiding is my life - I love it. You will feel that my special way to guide is to make it lightly, little funny also. Not only dates and names, more the stories around and some facts you wont hear from an electronic device.
