Visit the canopied tomb of Archduke Maximilian III at Cathedral of Saint James, the 18th-century Baroque cathedral dedicated to the apostle Saint James. Built between 1717 and 1724, the cathedral, with its lavish Baroque interior, is known for the painting Maria Hilf by Lucas Cranach the Elder. Considered one of the most venerated Marian images in the Christendom, it hangs above the main altar of the cathedral. Heavily damaged during World War II, the cathedral was eventually restored and features detailed artwork, sculptures, and a carefully-crafted pipe organ. Be sure to go on a guided tour to learn more about the historical background of the cathedral.

The painting of Mary and Jesus is a marvel. It's quiet reflection (even if framed in silver/gold) has become the US "Christmas" stamp.

The Domkirche zu St. Jakob (Cathedral of St. James) is an 18th-century Baroque cathedral in Innsbruck, Austria. Innsbruck Cathedral has a plain but window-filled facade with two towers topped with domes. A large dome covers the transept crossing. The interior is fully decorated in the Baroque style, with contributions from the Asam Brothers. The main attraction of the interior is the altarpiece entitled Maria Hilf (Mary of Succor) by Lucas Cranach the Elder. Also of interest is a monument of 1620 honoring Archduke Maximilian III (d.1618), in the north aisle.
It's a quaint cathedral but persists upon itself. The gaudy spectacle of golden everything is too much.
Carlo GrassiThe beautiful Cathedral of St. James is a must see for all those who have some time to spend in the city of Innsbruck. The Cathedral is also very well kept inside, with beautiful frescoes and a majestic dome. Then estimate the recommended visit for lovers of Baroque style.show original
