10 euro Ambras Castle - 2002 - Series: Castles of Austria - Austria

A general view of the castle to the south of Innsbruck with its Renaissance style gardens forms the central design. The inscription "Republik Österreich" is divided by the clock-tower, while the face value of "10 Euro" and the date form a base. On the reverse side three court musicians cross the floor of the Spanish Hall, based on a picture from 1569. This design recalls the court festivals for which Fedinand II had the Spanish Hall specially constructed.
