Innsbruck’s Triumphpforte

Way back in 1765 to honor the marriage of her son, and to mourn the death of her husband Empress Maria Theresa ordered a arch to be built. One side of the arch celebrates sadness, while the other side celebrates happiness. Arches were quiet commonly built to celebrate things in Europe but many were made of wood or other items which did not last, fortunately the designers of this arch built the structure out of stone and it remains today as a beautiful symbol of the time. The arch can be found on the southern end of the city on Maria Theresien Strasse.
