Ambras Castle in Innsbruck - among the most important museums worldwide - is closely linked to the personality of Archduke Ferdinand II.
Ambras Castle (Schloss Ambras) is one of the most beautiful sights of Innsbruck. Its founder was Archduke Ferdinand II (1529-1595) who founded also the "Ambras Collection", and built a modern museum in the basement. A large part of his collection can be admired in the three Chambers of Armour, the Chamber of Art and Curiosities, and the Hall of Antiquities.
Ambras Castle is not only an architectural highlight per se, but also interesting for art lovers. There the famous Habsburg Portrait Gallery, spread over three floors, can be watched. More than 200 portraits made by masters like Arcimboldo, Cranach, Rubens, van Dyck, Velázquez etc. are exhibited. Unique is the "Strasser Glass Collection", one of the most important collections of precious glasses from the Renaissance until Baroque worldwide.
The Spanish Hall below of the high castle is among the most splendid halls of the Renaissance. In summer it is venue for a range of concerts, e.g. the Ambras Castle Concerts. Ambras Castle, in association with the Museum of Fine Arts Vienna, is an international top destination for art lovers. This Renaissance jewel with its huge park makes a visit an unforgettable experience!
