The cathedral is a bit pedestrian from the outside (especially when compared with more famous cathedrals) but it is breathtaking Cathedral once you are inside. One of Innsbruck's great free sites but please do the right thing and make a donation when you visit.

It's a beautiful church. The church is small but it has big features. Chances are you'll be the only ones there. Don't let the size keep you away.

Tucked away in the old town, this cathedral isn't much to look at from the outside in truth But inside... Wow! Absolutely stunning ceiling frescos - up there with the best the Florence and the looked can offer

If you are anywhere near Innsbruck, Austria then it's worth stopping by and visiting Dom zu St. Jakob. Visiting the cathedral itself does not take much time at all but it's refreshing to step inside for a quiet moment in the midst of the outside busyness. You can sit and admire the sculptures and paintings for as little or as... More

The place is totally sublime. Quiet and spiritual. Have a moment to meditate and sit and admire. It is really easy to find and to get around.

a nice looking Cathedral outside in the old town, would normally not go in but took a peek inside and was greeted with an incredible ornate interior. Stunning ceiling paintings, a gold organ and some interesting shrines made for a very worthwhile time going in. A must see if you are in the area.
