The bright, Gothic and baroque style church St. Nikolaus is situated approximately 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) from Innsbruck, directly on Oberer Stadtplatz next to the town hall. The foundations for the construction of the chapel were set in 1281. The church itself was built many years later. The Gothic church was divided into three naves in 1430 and has become more baroque ever since. A highlight in the church is the Waldauf chapel in the northern nave, which hides a remarkable collection of relics of knight Florian Waldauf. The outer facade of the church is defined by a magnificent rooftop staircase. There are parking facilities for cars in the underground car parks at Stadtgraben and Unterer Stadtplatz.
