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

While exploring the center of Innsbruck, we came upon Spitalskirche. It had not been highlighted as a major tourist attraction on any of our maps. However, the Hospital Church of the Holy Spirit Innsbruck was worth the visit. Its rich stucco interior was quite impressive,...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.

This lovely church is located at the Maria Thesiastrasse street. I like the numerous frescoes on the ceiling. These paintings are fabulous! After World War 2, they had to be repainted. It was nice to come into that church from the 1700s. A welcome silence...More

Right on the allstadt main drag, with jetplanes seemingly skimming the onion tower, this unassuming and beautiful church is my selection as the boutique baroque 'must visit'. Despite the hassling beggars at the doors, the experience is uplifting ... especially if you can score the...More
