Good church

This was not the best church we've ever been to, but the statues inside were very interesting. The Dom might have been a bit better. It was also slightly expensive.

Maximilian's cenotaph, surrounded by 16th century bronze sculptures of notable figures of the time, creates a memorable visit. The smallish size of the church means that this monumental and spatially complex structure packs an experiential wallop. Read up on it in advance if you can, as there is so much to absorb (and no information to help you out) that... More

I finally had the opportunity to see this sight today even though I've been to Innsbruck six times. Amazing! Never have seen something like this before and I have seen more than 500 churches in Europe. Be sure to get the free audio guide. It makes the visit make sense.

We visited here on a combo ticket with the Volksmuseum. Both together were only 11 euro. The best view of the Hofkirche is from the balcony that you access from the Volksmuseum. You can see the church, the mausoleum and the statues well! Then go down onto the main floor to appreciate the size of the statues! The interior was... More

We spent time looking through this amazing attraction. It is well worth the visit and is very reasonably priced. You must do the Maximillian story/show is very well done and interesting. The bronze statutes are brilliant.

Started in 1553, the Hofkirche was originally built to house the remains of Emperor Maximilian I. Upon entering, you will be confronted by 28 massive, highly detailed, cast bronze statues guarding Maximilian's sarcophagus, which, by the way, is empty. Maximilian was buried in Wiener Neustadt. The sarcophagus itself is a work of art, decorated with marble reliefs of the Emperor"s... More

I've seen one of the nest statues collection in full size and it impressed me. The rest of the church is nice, but the statues and the baso-reliefs were great. The free audioguide is good for understanding the characters. The pre-presentation and the renascence room were well money worth.
