We watched the presentation on this and then went through into the church. This is amazing, so old with a lot of history. Quite unique.

This church is very unusual, figures are amazing. In the center of the church is a sarcophagus witch is beautiful decorated. The only problem is that the stories are written on Latin.

Entry to the Hofkirche is via the museum (EU5 each). There is a nice cloister just before entering the church. The larger than life statues and the central memorial are the main elements of the church that make it different to others. Statues are very well cast with quite "lifelike" facial features. I was left wondering about the historical accuracy... More

You need a good knowledge of the intricate marriage history of the Hapsburg family fully to appreciate their church.

Amazing set of huge statues standing over the cenotaph to Emperor Maximilian I (1459–1519). Includes fabulous statue of King Arthur. I've never been a fan of multi media shows but there is on taht I'd recommend highly included in the admission price and easy to find across the quadrangle from the entrance to the Hofkirche. Its available in English, French,... More

The Bronze statues in the Court Church are incredible, so much detail in the casting and the way in which they are arranged around the inside of the church. Historically interesting, definitely worth a visit.

We didn't have a lot of time to tour Innsbruck, so we decided to go inside this church. We got the headphones, so we could listen to the tour in English. The statues are quite impressive, and we enjoyed hearing about each of the statues and the person's bio. The detail of the sculptures is exquisite! You only need about... More

We decided to visit the Church having been told about it by our Tour guide and were intrigued to see it for ourselves. We entered and decided to get the free guided headset. Unfortunatlely on one of them worked but we entered the church to see the 'Black Men' these were apparently the bronze statues that line the Sarcophagus of... More
