Historical attractions in Tyrol
Located a short drive from Innsbruck, Ambras Palace is a Renaissance-style castle that was once the home of Archduke Ferdinand from 1563-95. Visitors can view some of the oldest collections of arms, armors, and arts in Europe. The Portrait Gallery and the Spanish Hall here are also worth visiting.
The Schwaz Silver Mine takes visitors back to the time of medieval miners. More than 85 percent of the silver that was traded in the world in the 1500s was mined here. Guests are taken into the bowels of the earth on board a mini train, and their experience is completed with light and sound effects.
