If you walk down the Maria - Theresien - Strasse, you cannot miss this large, architectural, Triumphal Arch.

Was at Innsbruck just for a night but have left me wanting to go back again. It's a small city which all attractions can be finished by foot. Regardless if is day or night. I'm still loving it. Probably because i visited during the Christmas period where there're all lights up.

I forgot how beautiful this arch was after not seeing it in 20 years. I was afraid we were going to have a problem finding this but since we went to the Breakfast Club for breakfast, it was so easy because this was right by it.

As we walked from the train station to the old town this was the first thing we saw. It is a massive arch that stands at the end of the main street so you can't miss it! Looked lovely at night as it was all lit up.

A nice old monument well maintained, like most monuments, this too is full of history. The South side shows motifs to signify marriage & the North side side to signify death, which is an unusual significance,all related to the Royalty of the past. It is better to look up the Internet or, get a Guide or Guide book if you... More

Behind the story is a story and this one you should check it out, one side of the entrance is for a wedding and the other side is for a burial, both at the same day - great view from there to the skiing jump area

I actually rode past this lost on my motorbike in the darkness of evening so I went looking for it the next day. Well worth a look.

It is at the beginning of Marie theressien Strasse so it is hard to miss a must see sightseeing point in Innsbruck
