Nice quiet church and museum.Not too crowded. I would like some more insights into the Austrian history but it was good diversion form usual tourist attractions.

We went to the Court Church, built in 1553 by Emperor Ferdinand I as a memorial to his grandfather, the previously mentioned Emperor Maximillion I. Emperor Maximillion's cenotaph sits in the centre of the church, surrounded by 28 large bronze statues. As such it was quite an impressive church to visit.

This is a small sized church with nobles' coffins and black statues. I am not a big fun of this historic site, so I just walked around for 5 mins and got out. The Japanese lady in the reception was not clear about giving directions at this site, it might be better to get another staff if you have any... More

The detail in each statue is amazing. If you can get information ahead of time about the individual statues you will get a history lesson in dynasties.

An excellent church with imposing statues. The entrance fee is worth it. The best of all is that you can take pictures inside.

Impressive statues of former kings and queens. Nothing much else to see in the church. and I find it a bit exaggerated to have to pay 5 euro to enter a church...

This beautiful gothic church has a very unique feature which we had not seen in any of the other churches in Europe. Right in the centre of the church is the decorated black marble cenotaph of Emperor Maximilian I (not his actual tomb) with the statue of the kneeling emperor on top. The decorated cenotaph is surrounded by 28 life... More

This beautiful historical building is a must-go place when in Innsbruck. The black statues are so detailed that you have a feeling it's a curved wood. Also, there's a chapel on the second floor, don't miss it. Before you go make sure you read about Emperor Maximilian.

Emperor Maxilmilian planned an impressive monument for his tomb before he died unexpectedly and it was left to his grandson to finish it off and build a church to house it. This is the result and a pity he never got to use it. The black marble cenotaph that was built as his tomb is surrounded by two rows of... More
