Must-see attractions in the heart of the Alps. My favorite places in Innsbruck were the Golden Roof, Maria-Theresien-Strasse, Imperial Palace, Imperial Chruch of Kenotaph Maximilian I, Ambras Castle, Cathedral of St. James and the Basilika Wilten. These places are all highly worth visiting. Photos: www.reformatt.com/blog/innsbruck Innsbruck became the capital of all Tyrol in 1429 and in the fifteenth century the city became a centre of European politics and culture as emperor Maximilian I also resided in Innsbruck in the 1490s. The city benefited from the emperor's presence as can be seen for example in the so called Hofkirche. Here a funeral monument for Maximilian was planned and erected partly by his successors. The ensemble with a cenotaph and the bronze statues of real and mythical ancestors of the Habsburgian emperor are one of the main artistic monuments of Innsbruck. In 1938 Austria was annexed by Nazi Germany in the Anschluss. Between 1943 and April 1945, Innsbruck experienced twenty-two bomb attacks and suffered heavy damage. The KZ Innsbruck-Reichenau concentration camp was located here. My name is Matt. I am a Dutch guy who moved to Canada at 21 years old.
