Stadtturm (Town Tower)#9 in Best Things To Do in Innsbruck
Completed in 1450, this 200-foot high structure originally housed prisoners, but not anymore. Someone must've realized that this panorama was too good for the city's convicts. Many consider the Stradtturm, or Town Tower, a perfect perch to snap photos of the rooftops and steeples of downtown Innsbruck. The nearby Golden Roof might draw more visitors, but those in the "know" claim that this site offers the superior experience.
One VirtualTourist recalls, "Here time seems to standstill as you enjoy a magnificent view of the whole city and its mountains."
Don't expect the view to come without a price: You'll have to climb 148 spiral steps and pay €3 EUR (about $4 USD). Instead, consider visiting this site with your purchase of the Innsbruck Card. You can scale the tower anytime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. October to May until 8 p.m. June through September.
