The palace was redesigned in Baroque style between 1754 and 1773 on the orders of Empress Maria Theresa. An impressive two-storey Riesensaal painted in gold and white, themed museum areas and gala rooms exemplify the magnificence of the Imperial Palace. Emperor Maximilian, the Hapsburgs and Tyrolean folk hero Andreas Hofer all have enjoyed the grandeur of this majestic castle.

There’s no place like Tyrol for the ‘wow, I’m in Austria’ feeling. Nowhere else in the country is the downhill skiing as exhilarating, the après-ski as pumping, the wooden chalets as chocolate box and the food as hearty.
