Really worth going inside, the interior is stunningly decorated with painted ceiling and so much to take in. Peaceful after the bustle of the old town. There are musical bells which play occasionally and a tranquil square in front

The interior design of the church is simple and refreshing. It feels different from all other churches I have visited in Europe. Do pass by if you have the time!

The abundance of churches in Europe is mind boggling, but this one really did stand out. The ceiling paintings are wonderful and the whole space is a feast for the eyes. Don't forget to take a look at the organ.

We weren't able to go inside because of a concert being put on. However, from the outside, church is quite pretty. It's visually stunning because it stands over the little town square on which it is situated.

This church is not nearly as ornate as others we have visited but was a beautiful and solemn place to visit.

I have been to many churches and cathedrals in Europe and this has to be one of the best. It doesn't look much from the outside, but inside was a pleasant surprise. So pretty, so ornate, so colourful. The highlight for me was the beautiful blue and gold organ.

Your eyes will be dazzled by the amount of silver and gold decoration in this fairly small cathedral.

Upon entering the cathedral, your breath is taken away by its beauty. The artwork and sculptures are exquisite and you were taken back in time. The pipe organ alone is worth the visit. A must see while in Innsbruck.
