Most won’t come to Innsbruck just for a retreat. However, amongst all the hustle and bustle of a mountain holiday, some peace and quiet is often welcomed. This present incarnation of St. James’ church (elevated to status of cathedral only just over 50 years ago)...More

Magnificent cathedral with an organ overhead... The ceiling is painted with beautiful figures and they ask that you pay 1 euro if you want to take pictures... Stop in for a respite and enjoy the grandure....

When we visited there was renovation work being carried out on the front façade but once through the protective walkway the interior is beautiful and certainly worth the visit with the bonus that it's free. Recommended.

Very nice, but not extraordinary in terms of churches in Europe. There is a very high standard when you visit churches in this part of the world. Worth a visit if you have time.

This church was beautiful on the inside. We timed our visit to be able to hear the carillon play at 12:15. We enjoyed hearing the music. The entrance is free, but there is a charge of 1 euro to take photos.

You walk into this massive Cathedral and just go "Wow," The architecture is spectacular as well as the murals on the ceiling. It is a really beautiful church. Don't forget to look up and see the organ!

The St. Jacobs Cathedral dates back to the 12th century. Due to 16th and 17th century earthquakes, the cathedral was rebuilt in the 17th century in its current Baroque style. The outside is already impressive, but the interior is awesome. The stucco and the ceiling...More

As others have said, there's no charge for walking in, but if you want to take photos, you'll need to buy a permit €1
