We really had to stop at the Frauenkirche after reading the legend to the Devil's footprint. Lovely Catholic church, but as with most German buildings, the fact that it's rather newly rebuilt, for me, at least, lessens the experience. But if you're strolling through the...More

This is a lovely church. Ceilings incredibly high, fascinating stained glass, intimate chapels etc. Well worth poking your head in.

As of now (sept. 2018) renovation work is still going on, but having a look at this church is a good idea. Take your time to enjoy and discover interesting details.

Liked the twin 'onion towers' of this church in Munich centre although the interior not as impressive as I'd imagined. Interesting tomb for Ludwig 1V.

Just down the street from the Marienplatz you will find this iconic church. The church is made out of brick not stone. Very plain on the outside but beautiful on the inside.

The Frauenkirche, the roman catholic cathedral, is a visual landmark in Munich. With it's two characteristic towers it serves well as an orientation point in the city. Severly damaged during WWII, the interior is not much to write home about. Rather dull and bland. Outside...More

Don't know the answer to this. St. Peter is a good idea if you had a good preparation like a lunch or breakfast. I personally did not like the very narrow balcony, It is quite a challenge to pass between two people. But the... More
