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.

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.

Beautiful cathedral with intricate paintings on the ceiling and walls, in the heart of the old town. A restful ambience for a quiet time of reflection as you soak in the atmosphere. Free admission with a box for donations. Definitely worth a visit even for a quick look.

Definitely worth seeing- the cathedral is in a lovely quiet square away from the more beaten tracks around the hofburg and Goldenes Dachl. Doesn't look much from the outside but is splendid inside- worth the two minute detour.

Beautiful cathedral, was a nice surprise as we didn't expect it. Gorgeous organ inside, though we didn't get to hear it played. Must visit if in Innsbruck.
