The column is not spectacular but the square provides excellent views of the surrounding mountains which you can use as a backdrop to your photos.

Many tourists stop here to take a photo. Perhaps if you know the history of this column it may have meaning to you, but otherwise it is a column to admire, take in the view and continue your stroll through the old town. The views...More

We stopped by this 18th century column commemorating a war victory while visiting the Christmas markets nearby. It sits in the middle of the large shopping district of Maria-Theresien-Straße.. Pretty pinkish marble (although hard to see in the deep winter afternoon!) with a statue of...More

You can clearly see the column while walking down Maria-Theresein-Strasse. It is worth a quick look.

Nothing special about the column but hard to miss as it is right in the middle of the town. Managed to get some stunning day and night shots with mountains in the background. Lots of shops and restaurants around.

This is hard to miss if you are Innsbruck. In my opinion, nothing too special about the column, what the main attraction was the mountains in the background.

These sorts of columns are in many cities, usually about the plague, but there it seems not. It is a bit away form center, in big shopping (real people) area. If you are there you will see it.
