What a beautiful cathedral, definitely a must see on the tourist route of Innsbruck. The artistic ceiling is spectacular it looks dome like but is actually flat. It costs 1Eu for permission to take photographs, I saw two 'snappers' escorted off site for refusing to pay.

The visit to the Cathedral of St. James in Innsbruck is a must see. The baroque architecture is exquisite. Entrance is free but to take pictures, you must purchase a pass which costs 1 Euro, well worth the cost and they do check.

A must see in Innsbruck. While not the biggest cathedral around, the rococo style of St. James' is not overdone and you can break up the various spaces. It's free but they ask for a euro for a picture pass. You should definitely stop in.

Charming little cathedral exquisitely decorated. I've seen many cathedrals but this exhumed a real charm and tranquility due to its size.

Like most Cathedrals I visited over Europe this one is not as big as others but don't let the size fool you it's stunning inside and the best thing is that photos are permitted not like a lot of the other around Europe.

This cathedral was beautiful. It is a baroque style cathedral which means it has murals and paintings everywhere, very little stained glass, and quite a bit of gold. While this cathedral is certainly not the most decorative, or biggest it is still very beautiful and worth the visit. If you wish to take pictures they wand you to buy time... More

The pink and white marble, paintings and gilded statues make for a colourful and interesting visit. Even if you are not very religious the beauty of the cathedral is awe inspiring. It is free to enter, but they charge €1 to take photos.

We enjoyed the cathedral most for interesting madona and child by Lucas Granach. The gentleman selling postcards and books on the cathedral was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the catedral.
