A Church Worthy of a Holy Roman Emperor
Even in a time where it was common practice for great men to erect great monuments for their contemporaries, the church and tomb that Ferdinand I built for the Holy Roman Emperor was received with awe. The Hofkirche in Innsbruck dazzles the eye even more today, as the Gothic memorial seems an opulent homage to the power and riches of Austria’s imperial past. The tomb honoring Maximilian I is considered the most ornate monument to any emperor in Europe. A visit to the Imperial Church holds more than the splendor of its architecture, it offers you the chance to witness living history.
