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

What a wonderful place. I spent there more time than I expected :-) Lots of exhibits and lots of information in German and English. The grounds are beautiful too.

Like all those before me, I can only confirm the lively suggestion to visit this castle for those staying in Innsbruck.
