Recently we visited St. James Church in the Old Town. It's in a very quiet square which has benches and some trees and is a very nice place to sit and relax and get away from the tourists in the shopping parts of the city.

After reading previous reviews I know some of what to expect and was not disappointed! The outside does not give many hints to the treasure held within! We also lucked out and arrived in time to hear the organist practicing. This is definitely worth a little stop.

We only spent about 20 mins or so in here but the very pleasant external architecture gives way to absolutely stunning interior architecture. The atmosphere seemed well-reserved and reverential notwithstanding the number of tourists. Free to enter & 1 euro to take pics. I also lit a candle for which the suggested donation was 80 cents.

It was inspired by Baroque and Rococo styles of architecture with a view of the Alps and check their frescoes which are well maintained. Please observe silence and respect while inside.

nice to have a cathedral all of a piece- pink marble, Baroque organ, painted ceilings etc. NO charge except for photography, which is nice. Handy carpark just opposite and no distance from Herzog Friedrich Strasse etc
