We went to the court church as part of the Tyrolean Folk art museum. It was our favorite part. The statues are so big and so awe inspiring. Definitely makes it interesting if you know the back history of Maximilian. Definitely would recommend.

Before entering this rather spectacular building we were ushered into a very interesting multi-media show that explained the history of the building and why Maximilian's tomb was eventually left empty. The figures around the tomb are extremely intricate! Overall, a great place to visit.

We spent over two hours in here so it must have been great. We saw statues ( yes so what?) just wait whilst I finish..carved tools, carnival costumes, ceremonial sledges, little scenes depicting the church year with tiny carved figures, the bridal party with all their effects and furniture. There was also a central garden you could walk round. On... More

Worth paying the entrance fee to admire the beautiful interior of this church and its historic royal figures. The black marble cenotaph of Emperor Maximilian I in the centre of the church with ornate decorations is amazing. Early visit is recommended as the church has a continuous flow of tourists. The statues although black are full of details and King... More

We entered the building and first toured an interesting folk museum. When we finally found our way to the Hofkirche, we were amazed y the absolutely stunning views of the interior from several high and low vantage points. The impressive, large bronze statues are unique and worth seeing. The ornate white ceiling of the church interior is supported by many... More

The usual way to see this elegant church is in connection with the Folk Art Museum, which it adjoins. I was thinking of going to mass here the next day, so I decided to pay only for the Museum. What a happy surprise, when, at the end of the very satisfying walk through museum , on the top floor of... More

To get into this church you must pass through the entrance to the folk museum. If you have run out of City card as we had, there is a combined price saving you a few Euros. The audio guide is a must if you want to get to grips with who all the statues are. The tomb was built for... More

Oh my gosh! After the Hofburg right into the Hofkirche and i just could not keep my mouth from dropping from what i saw. The statues...the details! When Maximillian the first died it took another 40 years to finish them. He himself died before the planned coffin/monument to be seen there in the church was finished. So he is buried... More
