(GMT)23 JAN 2017 GEMIINH:  Maria-Theresien-Street
Originally, over 700 years ago, this street in Innsbruck’s “New Town” consisted of just a few farmhouses.
The Old Town was enclosed by a well-fortified circular wall and could, from here, only be entered via the St. Jörgen gateway. It wasn’t long, however, before many members of the aristocracy began building their houses on this street in close proximity to the local rulers of the time. During the Baroque period, many of those houses were remodelled into opulent palatial residences that, today, are still a delight to behold - Palais Gumpp, for example, today houses the seat of the Tyrolean government and, directly opposite, is Palais Trapp with its charming inner courtyard and café.
