Domkirche Cathedral of St.James Innsbruck Reviews
18th Century Baroque Cathedral in Innsbruk Aug 09, 1998
It has been long since I was in Austria. I still remember that summer because we visited many religious sites and historical castles in 6 different countries. When leaving Austria, we drove through Innsbruk to Northern Italy, it was on this road that Peter decided to take me to Domkirche Cathedral. It is an architectural wonder of the Baroque architect Herkommer. Peter seemed to know much about it’s history so we did not go on a guided tour. Apparently the cathedral suffered damage during the world Wars and was restore in the years after the war.
On the outside, the cathedral looks like many churches you have seen, nothing particularly eye catching. What makes it exceptional is the alter dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The interior is so intricately put to honor nothing short of a diety. I should like to return there sometime on a European whirlwind for Sacred Sites/ destinations. Highly recommended.
