Ambras Castle is a Renaissance castle and palace located in the hills above Innsbruck, Austria. Ambras Castle is situated at an elevation of 587 meters. Considered one of the most popular tourist attractions of the city, Ambras Castle was built in the sixteenth century on the spot of an earlier tenth-century castle, which became the seat of power for the Counts of Andechs. The cultural and historical importance of the castle is closely connected with Archduke Ferdinand II and served as his residence from 1563 to 1595.
