Nice palace, you can find here memorabilia’s of Maria Theresa and her family and also Sissi. The exhibition isn’t too big so even younger kids will make it. You can rent an audio guide there but since there are written information in few languages everywhere,...More

The Hofburg was right in the old town not far from the Golden Roof. Worth a visit as it is beautiful inside and outside. Halls were beautiful but won't take long to complete the tour

This is a beautiful small palace to visit filled with pieces of art, furniture and more of the history of the Austrian royal family. When in Insbruck don't miss it!
