The one word guaranteed to come flying out of you as soon as you step into Austria’s finest royal court church is “wow”. The sheer grandeur will render you dum founded. But after you’ve gathered your wits about you, the beauty of the Hofkirche will become more apparent. Commissioned by Ferdinand I in 1553, the guest of honor is Emperor Maximilian I, though he actually isn’t buried here. The late Emperor’s tomb and its surrounding embellishments are one of the best examples of German Renaissance sculpting you will ever come across.
The tomb is carved out of black marble and depicts important life events of the Emperor; the tomb is set between 28 other statues, said to be of his ancestors- the most notable being King Arthur of England, guarding the tomb. The Gothic style church has a lovely Renaissance styled porch, a nave and a 16th century chapel with an altar and a statue of Madonna watching over the proceedings.
The best time to visit would be before the sun comes up as the sun shines directly on the altar, making it impossible to take a good picture.

ask for the multimedia show in your language. if time is not on your side, you won't miss out a lot. 12 minutes of sound and visual installation spread across 3 rooms. the main attraction is the church of course. a real impressive monument awaits!
What a surprise. A beautiful Gothic church with one of the most impressive tomb ever. Definitely worth a visit.
Unique atmosphere. You will be amazed by the impressive collection of black statues surrounding the statue of the emperor Maximilian I.
A must see. The bronze statues are impressive, no photo does them justice. The altar is amazing.
