Full description
The wonderful World of the Renaissance Schloss Ambras is one of the most important sights of Innsbruck. At Schloss Ambras you can immerse yourself in the life and the passion for collecting of the Renaissance prince Ferdinand II (1529 - 1595): Discover his chamber of art and wonders (Kunst- und Wunderkammer), his armories, and his Antiquarium. Admire the Habsburg portrait gallery with paintings from the time of Albrecht III (1349 – 1395) to the reign of Emperor Franz II (I) (1768 – 1835). The exhibition holds more than 200 paintings of the great masters, including the most valuable works of Lukas Cranach, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Peter Paul Rubens, Anton van Dyck and Diego Velázquez. The Chamber of Art and Wonders (Kunst- und Wunderkammer) at Schloss Ambras The Chamber of Art and Wonders (Kunst- und Wunderkammer) of the Renaissance is an encyclopedic, universal collection, which contains the entire knowledge of the time. The collection contains not only outstanding works of art such as the Tödlein, but also scientific objects such as the attachment with compass (Aufsatz mit Kompass), objects from distant countries, such as the "Ryukyu bowl" (Ryuku-Schale), rare products of nature, corals, portraits of people who were considered "miracles" such as the hairy man (Haarmensch) and fascinating games as well as unusual musical instruments. The Armories In the Armories, among other things, you will find rare tournament armor, ceremonial armor for courtly feasts, the armor of famous generals and the Turkish Chamber (Türkenkammer) of Ferdinand II, which documents both the fear of the Turks and the enthusiasm for the Orient in the 16th century.

Beautiful castle and garden. To see everything calmly it takes at least 2 and a half hours. The only flaw: the voucher must be exchanged for the ticket at the cash desk and this does not save you any queue. Plus they want to print and the booking screen with code on the phone is not enough !! To find out first, I took the ticket there directly.

Beautiful home, beautiful and well-kept gardens. I recommend that you consider being able to stroll and relax in the gardens as well as being able to take a little hike in the woods along the stream. You can access the wood from the gardens immediately next to the building, just follow the sound of the water. Inside the castle there is a bar with tables indoors or outdoors and a small shop (a bit expensive) for souvenirs. Visits to the internal rooms end at 17.00, the park remains open until 21.00. Completely satisfied. Total time of the visit 2 hours/2 and a half hours if you want to walk around and take pictures, 1 hour if you intend to visit only the internal rooms.

A visit to the Ambras castle is certainly recommended.

The visit to the castle was very pleasant; easy to reach, despite the rather critical climatic situation due to the abundant snowfall that has unfortunately made it impossible for us to visit the garden that surrounds it. Inside you can find several collections of interesting paintings and art objects and above all a rich collection of armor, the Spanish Room, the chapel of San Nicola, the Strasser glass collection
