‘Hofkirche’


Court Church

These bronze statues guard the cenotaph of Emperor Maximillian I. The statues are said to be of ancestors, relatives and heroes. Personally, I felt like I was in the Hall of Statues scene from The Chronicles of Narnia’s “The Magician’s Nephew.” I was waiting for a church chime to ring at any moment and the statues would step down from their pedestals. I was a bit of a child in this church, I must admit. I don’t know whether it was due to the feeling I was being watched by the statues, the solemn feel of this gothic church or from sheer exhaustion but I experienced a fit of giggles that lent me admonishing glares from the church attendants.
