Wilten Abbey Basilica#10 in Best Things To Do in Innsbruck
Price & Hours
Using the remains of an ancient church that sits below the modern structure, it's believed that this rococo church has a history that dates to the fifth century. Home of the Wilten Boys' Choir, the church is known for the figure depicting "Our Lady Under the Four Columns." Inside, you'll find rocaille stucco, ceiling frescoes and gold accents.
According to recent visitors, the basilica is a bit of a walk from Old Town but they say its interiors are gorgeous. Others recommend walking through the small cemetery located outside the church.
The church is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., except during services when it's only open to worshippers. It is free to enter, though donations are welcome. Visit the basilica's website (in German) for more information.

#1 Maria-Theresien-Strasse (Maria Theresa Street)
One of Innsbruck's most famous streets, Maria Theresien Street is a glorious remnant of the city's baroque past, dating back 700 years. Now a pedestrian promenade, the street, which is located outside Old Town, is lined with palaces once owned by the city's aristocracy, as well as cafes, shops and landmarks like St. Anne's Column and the Triumphal Arch.
Recent visitors raved about the amazing views of the mountains seen from the street and recommended seeing the Christmas market set up on the street during the holidays. However, a few reviewers warned that the prices at the shops, cafes and restaurants that line the street are too high. For unobstructed photos, plan a morning visit.
