Schloss Ambras Innsbruck - Innsbruck
Ambras Castle Innsbruck
The world's first museum as a top excursion destination in Tyrol.
Ambras Castle Innsbruck is one of the most beautiful sights in Austria. True Love: The castle was a gift of love to the "Beautiful Welserin" Philippine. Archduke Ferdinand II had the medieval castle magnificently expanded for her. Gossip: Philippine was not befitting the Habsburg emperor's son. The wedding, marriage and children had to be officially kept secret. Many rumors surrounded the woman at his side. Art and power: Ferdinand II housed his collections in a specially constructed museum building. The European high nobility and many travelers came to the Innsbruck court. Everyone wanted to marvel at Ferdinand's famous armories and his chamber of art and curiosities: the first museum in the world - a true must-see!
