Triumphal Arch

A baroque jewel from the 18th century

Commissioned by Empress Maria-Theresia in the 18th century, the Triumphal Arch lies at the end of Maria-Theresia-Straße and reminds visitors of both a happy and sad event. The southern side of the arch shows the wedding of her son, Archduke Leopold, in Innsbruck. The northern side depicts her husband and the father of Archduke Leopold, the Emperor, who died shortly after the celebrations. This impressive arch is made from Höttinger Brekzie, a traditional stone mined near Innsbruck.
