The City Tower is an important historical landmark in the city of Innsbruck and was constructed between 1442 and 1450. Standing 51 meters tall, the City Tower was an observation point for soldiers who announced the time of the day. The guards also observed the city from the top of the tower for intruders, fires and other dangers. This massive structure is a great example of Gothic architecture and contains quarters for watchmen and prisoners. Climb the 148 stairs to a viewing deck from where you can enjoy stunning views of the city. With its onion shaped bulbous domes, the City Tower remains an important part of Innsbruck since it was an extension of the old City Hall. Today the City Tower is surrounded by buzzing markets, fairs and other public events.
