From a Distance

I saw the church from afar at the West Bahnhof station and walked here. The yellow and white church looked quite interesting and the statues out front were also nice to look at. I didn't go in as it looked like there was something going on (Christmas Eve), so I had a look around on the outside and went on my way.

Free to enter. The gates were closed inside when we went, but you can still look from the entrance. It was white and gold and very intricate!

We walked from town all the way to the basilica- quite a hike but it was worth it. You get to see the town along the way and when we arrived some musicians were practicing and it just added to the majesty of the sanctuary. So beautiful!

Basilica Wilten Definitely Worth A Visit!
Jul 2018 • Couples
Another gorgeous church, this one Rococo, very similar to the Innsbruck Cathedral which is Baroque. Thoroughly enjoyed all of the wonderful artwork and that alter! Breathtaking! The cemetery outside the church is small, but very old and very interesting. Wish we had more time to contemplate each grave for the individuality of what we did see in the time we were there. Very quaint and fascinating. Definitely worth it to see before you leave Innsbruck.

The Basilica Wilten is incredibly beautiful. I really enjoyed the paintings inside and the ceiling decorations. Overall, the paintings and sculptures inside create a special vibe. Definitely worth to visit.

The Basilica Wilten is a gorgeous church in Innsbruck. It is worth a trip. Unfortunately for us part of the basilica was closed. It looked like jail cell bars so it was possible to still see everything, just not as close as I wanted. I am still glad I made the trip. The art and architecture is extraordinary. It is a must see for anyone who appreciates art and places of worship.

Wonderful.

We last saw this wonderful Rococo basilica over forty years ago, when we could only see from the doorway. We were very keen to see it again and were even more impressed now that we could enter. A superb church.

There are several impressive churches in Innsbruck, all worth exploring. The Wilten has very interesting ceilings and artwork and is free to visit.

Beautiful basilica on the edge of town
Dec 2017 • Couples
On our way into town, we stopped briefly at the basilica to see the amazing interiors. Unfortunately, it was a holiday and there was a midday mass taking place so we only stopped for a few minutes. The ceilings of this Rococo church were decorated with incredible frescoes and murals. I wish we'd been able to spend more time---gilded columns and a beautiful altar complete the place.

Stunning Rococo church...
Sep 2017 • Couples
Wilten Basilica was a stunning Rococo church which displays "Our Lady under the Four Columns" on its main altar. Beneath a marble canopy and large golden crown was the Gothic sandstone sculpture of the Madonna - the focus of religious pilgrimages. With its incredible acoustics, the basilica is home to the famous Wilten Boys' Choir. The artwork and ceiling paintings which detail the life of the Virgin Mary were breathtaking. A stroll through the large cemetery adjacent to Wilten Basilica was also interesting.
