I attended Sunday mass here, naturally it was in German. My German is poor but it was still a wonderful Advent experience. I did feel a little under dressed as the locals really do dress for mass. I'll know better next time.

The Cathedral of St. Jemes located in the old town Innsbruck City next to the Golden Roof, It's a Catholic Church in the beautiful Baroque building, was built 1717. The cathedral was heavily damaged during World War II, later was fully restored within a few years.

I went to Innsbruck as part of a Shearings holiday, the architecture is impressive. The dome is impressive with magnificent paintings. The Cathedral was opened in 1724, so quite late. Highly recommended.

Although not a large cathedral it has much beauty with its painted ceiling, wonderful wall paintings and unusual carvings. Of special interest is the historic Madonna and Child painting. The cathedral was bombed during World War II but has been beautifully restored.

In Innsbruck (aka) the Holy City there are numerous cathedrals that permit entry for free. this is one of the more opulent ones with marble columns and domed painting and guilded statues. A must for cathedral fans, and Catholics.

We visited the Catheral of St James as part of our guided tour of the old town of Innsbruck. It was the most amazing Cathedral with the most ornate interior, the guide gave us the history of the bulding and explained that this was the home of the original painting of 'Mary with Child' (the first depiction of Mary as...

The painting of Mary and Jesus is a marvel. It's quiet reflection (even if framed in silver/gold) has become the US "Christmas" stamp.

Like most Cathedrals in Europe, this Cathedral too is beautiful and well worth a visit. Even if you have no religious obligations, just for the sheer beauty of this place. 1 Euro is charged for photographs, well worth it as it is so very beautiful. One has to see it to understand the sheer beauty of this place.
