Innsbruck Things to Do: 567 reviews and 1,078 photos


Based on designs by the Baroque architect Johann Jakob Herkommer, the Domkirche was rebuilt between 1717 and 1724. The church was heavily damaged during World War II, but has since been restored.

The cathedral is roofed with domes and features a lavish Baroque interior. The main attraction is the high altar painting of Maria Hilf (Mary of Succor) by Lucas Cranach the Elder.
