Schloss Ambras

Set in attractive grounds 2km southeast of the centre, Schloss Ambras was the home of Archduke Ferdinand of Tyrol. It features the impressive Spanish Hall, built in 1569–71, and exhibitions of armour and curios amassed from around the globe. Don’t miss the inner courtyard covered in sixteenth-century frescoes, including depictions of the triumph of Bacchus.
