The column "Annasaule" is located in the middle of the Maria Theresienstrasse in the city centre of Innsbruck.
The monument was built to celebrate the liberation from the Bavarians on the 26th July 1703.
In that time Bavarian soldiers tried to take and occupy Innsbruck, but
were defeated infront of the city gates. The monument want to say
"thank you" for the brave men who fought and were able to save
Innsbruck from the aggression.
