I was wondering around Innsbruck when I saw this church near Innsbruck's Golden Roof and immediately I decided to visit it. The most impressive grave I've ever seen is placed in the middle of the building and you can also see a lot of sculptures all around that grave( dedicated to Massimiliano I, the Emperor).

The introduction ten minutes of video about Maximilian was a waste of time, I felt, as I just wanted to go straight into the church. Anyway, when the doors finally opeded, the vue was amazing. Huge bronze knights, Emperors and Queens dominate the nave of the church, looking like some figures from Hogwarts, and guarding the empty tomb of the... More

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.
