Roman Catholic, Baroque Cathedral from the 18th Century. Of note: two bell towers and impressive dome, large pillars and 9 altars. There is a sort of small park in front with benches, a quiet spot to relax and meditate.

It is a regular church from 17th century but the area and the park in front is beautiful. It worth the visit. Everythin in Innsbruck is at 2 minutes walking distance

Even though I am an avowed atheist I appreciate the spectacular beauty of the interior of this place. The intricate craftsmanship speaks volumes about the devotion and talent of the craftsman and the successive generations who have maintained it.

Located in a beautiful little square, not far from the golden roof, the cathedral is another stunning piece of architecture. I liked the idea, that you buy a one euro ticket to take photographs. A good way to raise funds for a church.

We walked by the cathedral during Easter weekend and there was a service happening so we could not go inside. The church seemed full and was beautiful from the outside.

Absolutely gorgeous, although I'm not overly religious I would have to say this place is a 'must see' while in the area. Photography is tolerated, but out of respect the last noisy and flashy, the better. Most modern digital cameras (and smart phones) are excellent, as they usually capable of fine medium light (indoor) photography without assistance from flash. You... More

Yet another wonderful church in Austria: very richly decorated and a great space. Sadly, the marvellous looking organ wasn't playing when we visited. If you happen to visit in the winter months make sure you wrap up well as the Austrians don't heat their churches or cathedrals!
