Burghauptmannschaft Österreich is pleased to announce that the special exhibition "The Emperor and his Tournaments", conceived until the end of October 2021, has now been incorporated into the permanent exhibition.  

This part of the exhibition at Hofburg Innsbruck deals exclusively with the great passions of Emperor Maximilian I: tournaments and hunting. 

"The Emperor and his Tournaments" continues the multimedia concept of the existing permanent exhibition and has been expanded to include new, exciting facets. For example, a digital presentation concept was developed in cooperation with the market town of Zirl, which, with the help of internationally renowned experts, has produced a 3D reconstruction of the building history of the castle and its surrounding area and shows visitors directly what life was like in a castle at that time.

You will be informed about the current COVID-19 regulations on site.

We look forward to your visit!
