Midnight Mass was a moving service in a beautiful cathedral, part of our Christmas stay in Innsbruck

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.

Not mentioned in tourist brochures or punted by tour guides, but more worthwhile seeing than the Golden Roof. This is a stunning little cathedral which is almost hidden among the other historical buildings in the street. The painted ceiling and dome as well as the exquisite artwork in the building makes this a must see.

The cathedral is famous for its tiny paining of Maria Hilf of which copies can be found in many Austrian churches. the cathedral is a typical barock building with frescoes.

I have visited this cathedral on a Saturday morning and met its polite priest. The paintings on the ceiling are very beautiful. The surroundings are not very lively, nor noisy. You'll enjoy skipping the busiest street Maria Theressen Strasse for this place. In short, the baroque cathedral is well worth a visit inside.

From the outside it looks like a usual Cathedral, but from the inside it's absolutely stunning. Well worth a visit.

Gold and ornate. Seems over the top when you see the interior, but then you realize you are in a cathedral with immense history. The interior is in stark contrast to the town of Innsbruck. It looks like it belongs somewhere else. You truly transport yourself for a few moments as you walk through here.

This is a beautiful cathedral very near to the Golden Roof and easy to get to for a nice, little visit. As are many of the cathedrals in that area of Europe, it is a vast beauty of pink and white marble and many frescoes and altars. Very lovely. Free of charge to get into as well.
