Typical Very Ornate Catholic Church

The title says it all. Gold and silver everywhere. Paintings, marble also. Great architecture. You can take photographs by making a small payment.

This is one of the smaller, but beautiful cathedrals in Europe. They allow pictures if you make a donation.

Outside the cathedral is dull gray but on entering one finds one of the most beautiful buildings in what I would say 'the world.' We have toured churches around the world including the St Peters in Rome and churches in Florence, but this has to rate as one of the best.

Worth stopping in if you have a chance! Breathtaking inside, from the painted celilings to the intricate details of the architecture. Quaint cemetery as well.

Amazing architecture and paintings. Small but worth it. Very central in Old Town and taking pictures is allowed by buying a photo ticket (1 euro)

We visited on a Sunday afternoon when not too many people were around. Make sure you pay a euro for a ticket to take photos. The interior & detail is stunning. We spent a short amount of time here but it was great to soak up the culture and history of the place. Well worth visiting.

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.
