The Spitalkirche (Hospital Church) lies in Maria-Theresien Straße, Innsbruck, close to the Old Town. Its name derives from the fact that before it was connected to a hospital. This doesn't exist any longer and nowadays there is apparently a school in the place where the...More

The pink church on Maria Theresien Strasse is unassuming from the outside except for the color and the dome. Inside, it's a baroque fantasy created by Gumpp, who transformed several churches and public buildings in Innsbruck into the baroque. it is not my cup of...More

This church is a must see, probably for all the wrong reasons. Free to visit, this is NOT the Sistene Chapel, but somebody has had a go at making it so and the result is highly comical. The pink exterior is garish enough, but inside,...More

A lovely small church in one of the main squares with a very interesting interior. Lots of different ideas some quite modern but a lovely ceiling and more plasterwork than anywhere else.

The thing that hit me the most about this church was the ceilings, the laid on plaster. I could imagine a master plaster Craftsman laying down the intricate squirrels.

It is situated in one of the nicest streets of Innsbruck and between buildings like it is a house or something. And from the inside so nice. It has a rare little organ. Definitely visit this street and church when you are in Innsbruck.
