Great shrine even if never used.

This church was built as a shrine finished 100 years after his death. It is quite beautiful. It will not take more than 15-20 minutes.

While not spectacular, the museum and church give a good perspective to Innsbruck's privileged place within the empire. The memorial (Maximilian is not buried here) and the church are more than adequate. It's a better deal with the Salzburg Pass and even if you need to rush through it's better to stop by than to pass by.

We bought the combined ticket and this was included, had we paid separately not sure it would have represented good value, spent just under half an hour here.

The statues round the mausoleum are very impressive, but we found out later in our visit that Maximilian is not actually buried in the tomb but that it is a memorial to him. Still worth a visit despite this especially if you have an Innsbruck card which gives you free entry to all the museums, the transport system and even... More

I have been to better churches in Austria.Its not worth spending 7 euro to see the statues. We completed the visit in <15 minutes, We didnot visit folkmuseum(12 eur for both) since we didnot have time.

Access to this Church is through the museum and houses the tomb of Emperor Maximilian the first. This is spectacular with larger than life statues surrounding the tomb which is enormous.on the first floor is the silver chapel which was disapointing but is the final resting place of Andreas Hofer

Another very ornate church. Court statues have amazing detail and bigger than I expected. Easy to take this in with the museum and palace.

A short visit as part of the Innsbruck card. Our son enjoyed the 'Harry Potter' church as the figures reminded him of the wizard chess in the film.

The short introduction to Emperor and the story of his tomb is very well done. The tomb is very impressive and imposing. The statues are very impressive. A must see for any history buff!!
