Accessibility at St. James' Cathedral

The cathedral is located at the heart of Innsbruck's historic old town and is partially wheelchair accessible. The large cathedral doors can be accessed via a metal ramp with an incline of just over six degrees. The entrance is wheelchair accessible but, as is common in many churches, the large doors are quite heavy.

The lavishly decorated Baroque cathedral was built between 1717 and 1724 on the site of earlier churches. On the high alter, you can admire the famous "Maria Hilf" painting by Lukas Cranach the Elder, while the ceiling features frescos and stucco by the Asam brothers. Every day at 12.12 pm, the Innsbruck peace bells ring out from the cathedral’s northern tower. The tomb of Archduke Maximilian III, the German Master, dates back to the previous building, where it was erected in 1629. Please refrain from visiting the cathedral and taking photos during church services.

From the cathedral, a short road leads directly to the Golden Roof.
