Create an itinerary including Katholische Hofkirche
One of the last and most impressive buildings of the Roman Baroque epoch, Katholische Hofkirche can be seen from all over the city. Its sandstone edifice is covered with fine architectural details that make its exterior distinctive. The bulk of construction on the buildings wasn't completed by Germans, but by Italian builders, architects, and a sculptor. The interior white walls and gilded altar are majestic and echo the grandeur of the outside and the Baroque observance of elegance. Visit during a service to enjoy the chapel's acoustics.

  • Beautiful building located next to the palace. The church is big inside with lots of artwork on the side walls and some up in the ceiling

  • One of several really stand out buildings that you will encounter in such a relatively compact area of the city. It is a real beauty and well worth seeing...

  • The sheer scale of this object - truly megalomaniacal. Worth it to merely walk in its shadow and feel the thrust of the walls pushing into the ground.
  • Visited on 6 Jun 2022. Impressive with the cathedral and the occassional chimes of the bell
