See several amazing art collections, the intricately decorated Spanish Hall, and step back to Innsbruck's imperial past.
Towering 587 meters above sea level on the hills above 800-year-old Innsbruck, sits Ambras Castle - a homage to Innsbruck's imperial history and the legacy of one of the Archduke Ferdinand II, Habsburg’s biggest art collector. It's also the oldest museum in the world!
