We visited the church as part of the folk life museum tour. Like everything else in Austria, the tour really gives you a lot for the money (my feet still ache). We were just about... read more

We were just about to leave the museum, when one of the guides directed us to the multi-media display. Although I whined at first, I went along, since it... More

The church is nothing special, rather plain. The bronze statues are what makes this special. If you are here, you should see this. The audio tour is rather long.

A clearly wonderful and beautiful church & museum. Would have been wonderful to know the stories behind all the pieces and paintings however due to "technical difficulties" there was only German commentary which was very disappointing and put a damper on the experience.

As other reviewers have said, a very interesting church different from most. Large bronze statues and the tomb of Emperor Maximillian dominate the nave. Helpful to have some understanding of the history. An unusual and slightly imposing experience. Definitely worth visiting.

Over sized black bronze statues of all the past rulers up to Maximillian. Got to see the Silver Chapel and admire Maximillians tomb (not used).

It is not like the normal cathedrals or churches that we see on a daily basis! The history behind Maximilian's rule, his personality and how this has helped to remind us of his saga is exceptional!

The bronze statues of kings and queens are incredible; pay attention at all the details and don't miss the silver chapel.

Unique presentation of Maximillian's special tomb which was never used. The tomb is covered with vignette paintings showing important hustorical events. What is most interesting is the collection of very large brass depictions of famous kings, queens, noblemen and warriors which surround the tomb. They are lifelike (though large) and extremely detailed. Well worth visiting.

If it were not for the bigger than life bronzes, this would just be another church. It is interesting, but the tomb makes it worthwhile.
