Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria
The Old Town Armory/Barracks
Simultaneous with the construction of the Innsbruck old town as a fortified city 1180-1204 under the Count of Andechs and the Duke of Merania, an inner- or city arsenal was constructed and from the 15th to the 18th Century (to 1780) was used as a barracks. The old barracks were thoroughly renovated in 1851-54, making way for newly constructed barracks, which in 1986-88, etc. was adapted as an administrative building.
