The Basilika had just been unveiled from renovations prior to our arrival. I've never seen something so sparkly, luxurious, and yet welcoming. Stroll the grounds and read the tombstones and markers. A true slice of history and an architectural gem.

Fantastic example of the late Tyrollean baroque. Take trolley number 1 form city center or walk for 1 hours. Off the main tourist track but well worth it.

Like most churches in Europe, this church too is beautiful. Even if you have no religious obligations, it is a very beautiful church for non Christians too, just for the sheer beauty of the place. Well worth a visit.

We visited at the end of the June and discovered that the interior of the church is undergoing renovation which is expected to last until the end of October 2016. On the day we stopped by we were able to view the interior from behind a grill, which showed a combination of scaffolding and protective covering in place for the... More

This basilica is not in Old Town and is a short bus ride from there but is well with the visit. The church is nice looking on the outside but the inside is simply astounding and beautiful. Highly recommended!

It has a really impressive inside architecture in Baroque style, a lot of decoration well preserved, the bright white color is very relaxing, also combined with pink. Everything inside looks really nice and it is very close to the center so it is worth visiting it.

The Rococo architecture and ceiling are absolutely stunning. If only you were allowed to walk beyond the back of the Basilica from which you see all.

The basilica, which is a fifteen minute walk from the old town, is a wonderful example of Baroque architecture, bordering on Rococo. The interior is richly ornate, and has beautiful frescoes - although it is not directly accessible. One can only really stand at the far end of the church and admire. At least, lack of access was made up... More

This is an absolutely beautiful church with its pink and white marble, and very ornate gold adornments. The ceilings and walls are covered with beautiful and intricate frescoes and paintings. The exterior is painted in yellow and white making it quite visible from a distance. Unlike the Cathedral of St James, a young lady attendant was inviting people to take... More

We took the hop-on-hop-off bus around Innsbruck and hopped off at the Basilica (and the Bell Foundry - also worth a visit) The interior is absolutely stunning. In the grounds is shop selling products made by the Monks (I think! or the Nuns) but it closes at 12 noon so we missed it this time.
