Best Hikes to Triumphpforte
  • Paul Mura

    triumphal gate
    The Triumphpforte in Innsbruck is one of the most famous sights. It was built in 1765 at the southern exit of the city. The occasion was the marriage between Archduke Leopold (third son of Maria Theresia and Franz Stephan von Lothringen) and the Spanish Princess Maria Ludovica. In connection with the wedding celebration, Innsbruck was entrusted with various preparations. The streets and sidewalks needed repairs and better lighting. Quarters had to be created and the moat, which had become meaningless, had to be filled in. In the course of this modernization, the suburban gate at the exit of the old town to Maria-Theresien-Straße was removed. The resulting cuboids were used as building material for the Triumphal Arch. Constantin Walter took over the planning using the templates of the Arch of Constantine and then the construction management for these gates of honour. Due to a lack of time, Johann Gahenauer initially made the sculptural decoration only provisionally from wood and plaster. The death of Emperor Franz Stephan on August 18, 1765 meant that the marble version that had already been planned was reworked again. The north side of the triumphal gate commemorates the bereavement. In 1774 the sculptor Balthasar Moll was commissioned to produce it.

  • The triumphal arch was built in 1765 for a wedding. Unfortunately, today's environment does not do justice to the building, but it is worth approaching it from both sides.

  • A Roman-inspired triumphal arch surrounded by modern city life and timelessly imposing mountains: the triumphal arch is one of the most striking sights in Innsbruck.
    But she is not that old. The baroque building was commissioned by Maria Theresa in the 18th century.
