Innsbruck Cathedral is considered the first major building in Tyrol in the mature Late Baroque style. It is a product of the Füssen school of architecture, conceived by Johann Jakob Herkomer and enriched with new forms by his pupil, Johann Georg Fischer. The stuccowork and frescos were also executed in accordance with contemporary forms by the brothers Asam and are of the highest quality.
