This was an amazing place to visit the gold foil and art sets this place apart from the rest. The chapel domes are the main attraction with Gothic biblical paintings. They are just amazing as is the entire town, small park out front to enjoy the scenery. Just lovely do not 'walk on by' go in its lovely... well worth... More

We came here as my daughter had to do a school project about the history of Innsbruck including saint Jacob. The cathedral is beautiful and the gold is very impressive. If you pay 1 euro you can take photos. There are also books and postcards to buy or you can light a candle.

We stumbled upon the church whilst strolling around the town. It would be easy to walk past the church as the exterior is, by comparison to it's decorative interior, rather neutral. A description of this incredible church would always fail to serve justice to it's ornate beauty. If you have a half hour spare in Innsbruck a visit to the... More

After enjoying the morning walking around the wonderful old section of Innsbruck, we ended up in a small park in front of this church. Compared to others we've visited, this was smaller and nondescript from the outside, but we went in to take a peak and it was beautiful. Ceiling paintings were gorgeous. I won't make a special I am... More

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
