6) HofGarten (must see)

The Hofgarten in Innsbruck is a protected park in Innsbruck. The park covers an area of 10 hectares (25 acres). During its 600 year existence this icon of garden styles that was originally a river meadow has been turned into a Renaissance garden, a French formal garden and, for the last 150 years or so, an English landscape garden. The Hofgarten management is responsible for taking care of the park. It is notable that there are still plants in the park that were planted personally by the Austrian Empress, Maria Theresa.

In the middle of the park is a pavilion dating to 1733, in which numerous events - mainly concerts - take place, whilst chess tournaments are fought on the outsize chess board there. There is a lawn for sunbathing in the Hofgarten with a children's playpark. Otherwise walking on the ornate lawns is not permitted because they are susceptible to excessive use. In the palm house is a comprehensive collection of about 1,700 species of plant, which may be viewed mostly on working days. During the temporary art and sculpture exhibitions in the summer season the palm house may also be visited at weekends.
