What kind of capital is this without a castle? Here in Innsbruck there is a large Ducal castle - castle Ambrass. The place where the castle was built served as the basis for defensive structures since the 10th century, both the castle and the fortress were built here, which in the 15th-16th centuries were rebuilt into a castle more like a Palace.Archduke Ferdinand II Began rebuilding in 1563. Now the castle has museums, as well as a wonderful Park around (in which, by the way, peacocks freely walk).
The address for the navigator: Schloßstraße 20, 6020 Innsbruck
Working time: the museum works from 10 until 17 o’clock. The collection of the Habsburg’s portraits and the collection of gothic sculptures works from April to October.

I haven't got to the Museum yet, so I can only judge by the reviews. With the Park, everything is more or less clear, most are delighted with it, especially like the views of the city and the birds that freely walk between the trees and visitors. But the Museum is not so clear. The photo shows that the collection of armor and weapons is impressive, but not everyone likes this business, in the halls, as well as judging by the photo, no interior items have been preserved, which makes the Palace museums attractive, the rest of the exhibition causes very contradictory reviews, someone recommends not spending time on this Museum, and someone is completely delighted...The conclusion is simple - go, look, then you can make up your opinion and share it with me, I will post it on the site )) (I will definitely go and see it myself!).
