Map
 
 
Derived from the Latin name for mountain, burgusinus, the Bergisel stands to the south of Innsbruck at 746 metres high, where the Sill river meets the Inn Valley. Inhabited during the Ice Age and also used as a cremation site it has become synonymous with the battles which took place here in 1809, when the Tyrolean peasants, under the command of the freedom fighter Andreas Hofer, attempted to repel the French and Bavarian forces. The Andreas Hofer Monument, commemorating the Battles of Bergisel, was erected here in 1892.
