Catholic parish church hl. Martin in Aldrans

The Roman Catholic parish church of Aldrans is located in the municipality of Aldrans in the Innsbruck-Land district in Tyrol . The church consecrated to St. Martin belongs to the Wilten-Land deanery in the diocese of Innsbruck . The church and the cemetery are under monument protection .


Initially it was a branch of the Ampass parish church, which had been incorporated into Wilten Abbey since 1256 . In 1365 a church was mentioned in a document. The church was consecrated in 1426 and 1482. The Gothic church building was baroque in the middle of the 18th century and redesigned in 1891 and after a fire in 1893. In 1966/1967 a reconstruction took place with the architect Hans Loch and in 1967 the elevation to the parish church.


Interior view, view of the choir

The Gothic church building is oriented to the south and surrounded by a cemetery wall. On the west side of the nave are the modern additions of a side portal with a chapel for the dead and a sacristy under the towering roofs, which are clearly delimited by a glass strip.


In the choir there is a choir organ from 1974 instead of an altar structure. The crucifix in the choir, the figure Immaculata on the triumphal arch and the Way of the Cross were created by the sculptor Rupert Reindl (1967). The altar is a work by Rudolf Millonig from 1990. The Bavarian relief hl. Martin with beggar around 1520 on the right in the nave was exchanged in 1967 with the Tyrolean State Museum for a pulpit from Wengen in Enneberg by the sculptor Dominikus Moling .
