Wow!!!!!

So impressive...the artistry and beauty must be experienced. To think that this level of craftmanship was possible in Maxmillian's time.

What a fascinating idea. Enhance your own reputation by filling your chapel with very large statues of famous people, and a grand tomb with nothing in it. The overall effect is memorable. They don't waste money on overheating it! Included in the Innsbruck Card - you enter via the Folk Museum.

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.
