Mirabell Palace
Monuments
Mirabell Palace has a story attached to it. It was built in 1606 for the Prince-Archbishop’s mistress, with whom he sired 15 children. In subsequent centuries, that palace was fire-damaged, redesigned and now re-appropriated as the offices for the regional council. Cast your eyes across the ornate Baroque architecture in and outside the palace, then stroll the grounds.

Maria Theresien Street
Shopping Areas
All walks of Innsbruck life converge on Maria Theresien Street. The town’s main thoroughfare is one of Tyrol’s most sumptuous streets – and a natural meeting point for the city’s residents. Teens congregate to gossip and giggle at the steps of the Annasäule column, shopaholics eye up window displays, and be-suited office workers chat over post-work pints.
Accommodations near Maria Theresien Street
Salzburg Cathedral
Monuments
The power and the glory. This is Salzburg’s most grandiose church, recognisable by its imposing dome, Baroque architecture and the four statues of saints that border the building. The church has been built and rebuilt since 774, and can hold a congregation of around ten thousand people. It’s dedicated to Saint Rupert and Saint Virgil, patron saints of the city and province.
