Along this street are located the most interesting buildings, which, in their elegance and beauty, can compete with the majestic palaces of Vienna.
The famous street begins with the Arc de Triomphe, erected by order of Maria Theresa in honor of the wedding of her son Leopold and Spanish princess Maria Ludovic. Almost at the same time, along with the joyful event, the royal family suffered a bereavement - death Franz I. Therefore, on the bas-reliefs of the Arc de Triomphe, on one side, scenes of a wedding are depicted, and on the other, scenes of the death of the Empress's husband.
Further, after the arch, you can see, the beautiful red marble column of St. Anne, erected in honor of the victory over the French in 1703, at the top of which is a sculpture of the Holy Virgin Mary. At the foot of the column there are four sculptures of saints - Georg, Anne, Virgil and Cassian, who are considered the patrons of the land of Tyrol and Innsbruck.
There are many benches in the pedestrian zone of the street, where lovers of shopping and architecture come. Each house located on Maria Theresa street has a large number of shops with shoes, clothes, souvenirs, toys, etc.
