Innsbruck & its Holiday Villages

Helbling House - Innsbruck & its Holiday Villages


This original 15th century Gothic town house was purchased by Johann Fischer in 1725. In 1730, he had the façade decorated with late Baroque plasterwork and front oriels by Anton Gigl.

The ornamental screen façade is highly decorated with sculpture and decorative elements, such as lavish acanthus, busts, masks and shells.

The building is an outstanding example of bourgeois grandeur in the Old Town. The net vault of the adjacent arcades is a worthwhile architectural gem as well.

The house is named for Sebastian Helbling, who operated a small Café in there in 1833. The historic structure was completely refurbished in the years 1979 and 1980.
