Innsbruck: City Tower Entrance Ticket

1. Innsbruck: City Tower Entrance Ticket

Look out over the rooftops of Innsbruck as the tower guards once did in the Middle Ages. Discover how guards kept watch from the City Tower for almost 450 years, warning citizens of fire and other dangers. The lower storeys also once served as a prison. Today, the tower is there for visitors to enjoy. Over 133 steps lead up to the 31-meter-high viewing platform, which overlooks the medieval streets of Innsbruck and offers stunning views of Bergisel, Patscherkofel mountain, the River Inn, and the Nordkette mountain range. Learn about how the City Tower is a good 50 years older than the Golden Roof. It was completed in 1450 on the side of the old town hall. It doesn’t seem huge in comparison with modern buildings but 51 meters was very impressive in 1450 and the tower was a proud symbol of the self-confidence of the people of Innsbruck. The onion dome was added 100 years after its completion. Today, the tower still rises up majestically from amongst the medieval buildings in the old town – providing a good vantage point and a romantic view of Innsbruck. For a romantic experience, take the tour at sunset during the summer. During winter, listen to the tower trumpeters play from the balcony of the Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof) whilst the Christmas markets can be seen below. Please note that as the City Tower is a historic building and its existing form has to be preserved, there is no lift and you can only reach its top by climbing 133 steps.

I got a slight twist on the climb of the stairs. Leaned up, you had to climb over a glass plate, was quite funny.

Easy to use. Just present the reference code to the receptionist and they will accept it.

Skvělá vyhlídka na město. Celkem dostupná pro všechny. Není ovšem bezbariérová.

Many steps, take it easy, but nice once you get there

Ascent is a bit strenuous but the view is worth it!
