The bronze statues around the tomb are the main reason to visit this church- they are breathtaking and incredibly detailed and quite a novelty in such a quiet religious setting. Entry is through the Volksmuseum- the reception staff are very helpful if. You are confused about which ticket to buy.

It is an impressive sight inside, with Maximilian I tomb and numerous statues of various historical figures. The statues were very detailed, worth checking them up close. We were happy that we decided to visit this church.

The amazing 28 giant bronze figures that are inside this church are truly an amazing sight. The skill and talent that has gone into making these statues are unique. They surround a black marble sarcophagus of Emperor Maximilian I. It is definitely one of Europe's finest churches without a doubt.

By no means, our first destination was the very church with the multiple figurines. Yet, the second part of the visit resulted to be not less impressive: the interactive excursion about Maximilian I. Completely automatic. Informative and impressive. Strongly recommended.

Maximilian I's tomb is there and it is encircled by 28 huge bronze statues of his friends, his family and historical figures. The statues are remarkable. It is quite a sight and it is close to the Imperial Palace and one of the museums so there is plenty that is close.

Located in the heart of Innsbruck's old town, the Hofkirche can be accessed through the Tyrolean Folk Museum. Before entering the church, your journey begins with a multi-media show that takes you through a series of rooms. Each room provides historical information on Maximillian 1 and the times in which he lived, up until his death. This is a well... More

This church was recommended by the tour guide who did not have time to show us the inside whilst we were on the walking tour. It has a wonderful multimedia show as an introduction and the tomb of Maximillian, housed as the centre piece, is amazing. It's a real surprise when you enter the church and was a highlight of...
