Helblinghaus is considered to be one of the most beautiful buildings in the Alpine capital. It is built in the Baroque style, and is notable for being a residential building, despite the fact that it is an important historical monument of the city on the Inn River. Graceful annulets give tourists the feeling as though standing before them is not a building, but a cake that they want to eat. Another interesting building can be seen while walking along the Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse waterfront. We are here referring to Ottoburg, which you can recognize by the monument to the freedom fighters of Tirol in 1809, situated in front of the building itself. It was built at the end of the 15th century by order of Maximilian I. Today, the mini-palace is a restaurant which serves excellent cuisine. Lovers of atmospheric places will be unimaginably delighted from going in and out the building.
The Jesuit Church of Innsbruck is considered to be one of the most beautiful religious temples in the entire region. The main attraction of the cathedral is a bell weighing 9 tons. It is also here that Duke Leopold and his better half are laid to rest. The church was built in the Baroque style, and the time of its construction dates back to the year 1619. The small church Landschaftlichen Pfarre Maria Hilf attracts the attention of people with its extraordinary spaciousness and incredible sense of peace. Georgskapelle, a small charming chapel, is yet another interesting place from the point of view of its interior – the interior decorations are simply amazing from the very first minutes.
