We fell into a choir practice which made our stop there just wonderful. Beautiful baroque church. Would go again.

“Do check this out!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

One of the best churches we visited so far in Europe. It is not huge, but the rococo architecture is simply WOW. Very ornate, definitely check it out. It's not one of the top attraction choices like the Hofkirche or Hofburg in the guide books (don't know why!), but we definitely liked this the best in the old town. Makes for some very good pictures as well. The only thing missing was a good audio guide explaining the history of the church. There is a pay phone using which you can get information about the church and it's history in the language you chose, but we found that the content was very condensed and difficult to follow and remember.

“A BEAUTIFUL BAROQUE CATHEDRAL”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Austians are very faithful, and that is expressed by the emphasis given to the churches, that are many and very attractive. One i likes very much, is St. Peter's Cathedral in Salzburg, but i can say, that Cathedral of St. James in Innsburg is impessive as well.The architecture,The Organ, Our Lady and Child statue is really excellent,Jesus calling everyone is fantastic ! Don't miss it,is
worthwhile to visit.

“Do not miss it”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We were just visiting the town. Does not look impressive from the outside, but this is one of the best little churches in Europe (and anywhere). Extremely ornate and well maintained.

“Lots of baroque!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

A simple building in shape but very well decorated with stucco, paintings and carving. There is a huge organ and if you can get to hear it at a concert it's a bonus. On the altar - but so far away -is the famous painting of Our Lady and Child by Lucas Cranach.
