Stadtmuseen<br />Stadtgalerie



The municipal Galerie im Andechshof in Innsbruck’s Old Town works to promote talented young artists and to serve as a stepping stone for artistic careers. The gallery offers young artists – especially graduates of academies of art – an opportunity to present their works to the general public.

Apart from showing the artists’ early works, gallery owner Horst Burmann also takes an interest in observing their subsequent artistic development and inviting them to a repeat exhibition several years later.

Since the gallery opened in 1991, over 260 artists have taken advantage of this unique facility. The list of artists who have exhibited at the Andechsgalerie is impressive; in addition to the executive board of the Tiroler Künstlerschaft, many of today’s well known artists first exhibited at the municipal gallery.


In addition to organising the exhibitions, the gallery also publishes a catalogue that covers the past year’s exhibitions and serves the artists as a reference for subsequent projects. The catalogue is available free of charge from the Office of Culture and the Galerie im Andechshof.

Artist exchange programme with New Orleans

The artists at the Andechsgalerie can also participate in an artist exchange programme with New Orleans, one of Innsbruck’s twin cities. Every year in July, the gallery holds an exhibition of works of New Orleans artists, and in autumn two Tyrolean artists from the Andechsgalerie travel to New Orleans and exhibit their works at the St. Claude Gallery of the University of New Orleans.
