The Basics

As well as admiring the cenotaph, with its lavish marble sarcophagus and 28 life-size bronze statues, visitors to the Court Church can explore the Silver Chapel, named for the silver statue of the Virgin Mary on the altar; see the church’s 16th-century gilded organ; enjoy a multimedia exhibition about Maximilian I; and browse the exhibits at the adjoining Tyrolean Folk Art Museum.

A visit to the Court Church is a popular inclusion on Innsbruck city tours, and most walking tours of the Old Town include at least a photo stop at the historic church.
