The 'black men' statues are great and an interesting story about why they shouldn't be there. Worth visiting. We got the joint ticket for the Tirol museum next door (where you enter the church and buy the tickets) - free with the essen.. Read more »tial 'Innsbruck Card'. Museum also good, some great dioramas and old farm tools (really), and recreations of Tirolean homes. You can easily do both in an hour.
Do the multimedia presentation it's offered in English. It explains Court Church and tomb of Maximilian 1559. Tickets with Tyrolean Folk Art Museum is a great value.
Really impressive tomb, statues, and carvings. Not very big, so I would not recommend buying a ticket just for this. I would buy either a museum pass or the Innsbruck card which entitles you access to more places, to make this worthwhile

In the museum, on the second level, there are lots of clothes and tools which were used in the past. But for me, a fun experience was a little game they had, where a set of clothes were shown to us and we had to guess which country the clothes belonged to. Try it. It's fun.

Wonderful church with some truly incredible artifacts. You can visit for a small entrance fee, stow your stuff in a locker for a refundable one euro cost, and visit the small gift shop afterward. Worth visiting.

The tomb for Maximilian is really cool with all the the life size status surrounding it.
While I was there a gentleman was playing the organ in the small hall on the second floor
