Silberne Kapelle

Recommended
The Silver Chapel was built in the late 16C by Ferdinand II, Governor of the Tyrol, in order that his final resting place might be beside his wife. It owes its name to the silver Madonna who presides on the precious wooden altarpiece, surrounded by the symbols of the Litanies. On the left is the recumbent figure of Philippine Welser, Ferdinand's beloved wife. His figure lies next to hers, the pair being the work of the Flemish master Alexandre Colin, who also produced part of Maximilian's Mausoleum.
