At Schloss Ambras Innsbruck, see Archduke Ferdinand II's collections of art, crafts, and curiosities. Commissioned in the 16th century by one of the most important patrons of the Habsburg family, the castle served as the archduke's residence from 1563 to 1595. In the chamber of art and curiosities, find corals arranged in cabinets, turnery made of wood and ivory, glass figurines, porcelain, and silk paintings. In two rooms of jousting armor, you can examine the suits made for the archduke. Enter the Spanish Hall, a notable example of German Renaissance architecture, and look along the wood-inlaid ceiling and walls adorned with 27 portraits of Tyrolean rulers. Compare them to the paintings of Habsburgs in the upper castle portrait gallery.

Very beautiful place. Lots of history and interesting exhibition to see. They have explanations in English and German. The garden is very well taking care of. Highly recommend!
Beautiful medieval castle with spectacular weapons and art galleries. Peacocks are showing all their splendour in the courtyard. Although, it is a bit expensive and you also have to pay for parking at a meter where it only accepts coins of 1 and 2 Euro and no cards, it is worth your visit.
