Innsbruck City Tower (Stadtturm) Tours

Innsbruck City Tower (Stadtturm)
Towering 167 feet (51 meters) over the northern mouth of Maria Theresien Strasse, Innsbruck City Tower (Stadtturm) is one of the city’s most recognizable monuments. Built in 1450 and topped with a striking green dome, the historic clock tower is best known for its open-air observation deck, affording views over the Old Town.

The Basics
The only way up to the 100-foot-high (31-meter-high) viewing platform is by a spiral staircase with 148 stone steps, so prepare for a climb. It’s worth it for the view, which stretches all the way to the Alps on a clear day and offers a prime vantage point over nearby landmarks such as the Golden Roof (Goldenes Dachl) and the Court Church (Hofkirche). If you don’t fancy the climb, you can still admire the landmark tower from street level—it’s a popular photo stop on walking tours of Innsbruck’s Old Town.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There is an admission fee to climb the Stadtturm; entrance is included with the Innsbruck Card.
  • Wear comfortable shoes—the only way up and down is to take the stairs.
  • The tower is not wheelchair-accessible.

How to Get There

The Stadtturm is located at the northern end of Maria Theresien Strasse, where it meets  Herzog Friedrich Strasse, right opposite the Golden Roof. It’s easy to reach the landmark on foot, just a short stroll from the Imperial Palace (Hofburg) and the Hofkirche, or about a 10-minute walk from Innsbruck train station.

When to Get There

The Stadtturm is open daily from midmorning to night in summer (June to September) and closes in late afternoon in winter (October to May). Choose a clear day for the best views, and get there as early as possible to beat the crowds—there’s only one way up and down the tower, so busy times can slow down your visit considerably.

Landmarks of Innsbruck Old Town
The Stadtturm is one of a number of historic attractions in Innsbruck’s Old Town. Right opposite, the glittering tiles of the Golden Roof and the striking Helbling House are among the most photographed sights in town, while a stroll down Maria Theresien Strasse reveals architectural gems such as the Federal State Parliament building, St. Anne’s Column, and the Triumphal Arch. Just north of the Stadtturm are the Hofburg, the Hofkirche, and the Cathedral of St. James.
