Beautiful cathedral

Another good place to visit on a tour of the old town. Located in a peaceful small square, worth seeing inside and out.

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!

Stunning but not my favorite place in Innsbruck. It was 1€ to take photos inside and 0,80€ to light a small red candle. I'm not a very religious person, but it felt special to light a candle in remembrance of loved ones in such a magnificent place. Fun Fact: Catholics in the area must pay 1% of their salary to...

The outside of this church belies the beauty within. A very interesting and ornate baroque cathedral and very well with a visit. Sit down and lie back to view the ceilings.

Just a stones throw from the golden roof and free to enter it's a great little cathedral. For 1 euro you are allowed to take photos inside and even though it's small it's packed with lots of interesting features well worth photographing.

Visited Christmas afternoon. So beautiful and peaceful. Worth paying the €1 charge for pictures without a doubt

Went here with the waling group. Roccoco as they like it in these places. Don't see that so much in the rest of Western Europe.

Coming in from a grey day this was a delight, a wonderful rich and bright display of the best of Baroque art. Pay the Euro and take as many pictures as you like - the Christmas crib was on display and was so intricate.
