This is a beautiful church that is close to Marienplatz. The ceiling is gorgeous, and everything is more ornate than in many other German churches that I've seen. We decided to climb the tower to the top, which was a very hot walk, but we...More

Hhhhmmm, it’s okay but a bit flat. Not particularly imposing internally and with many sections inaccessible and with no tourist information, this place definitely seemed like it wanted to hold onto it’s history and religious practise - not to share it with everyone else -...More

It’s a somewhat difficult climb but the views are worth it (see attached photos) Don’t forget to take a quick look at the inside of the church too

Others have mentioned the smell of incense which was another reminder that this is not just an historic monument but a place of daily worship. Photo displays in the back of the church showed the damage from bombs during WWII and the repair process. The...More

You can climb 300 some stairs to the top of St. Peter's to get a breathtaking view of the city of Munchen.

It is extremely old, and it's very central location in the heart of the city makes it a must visit while in Munich!

Note, you don't get your ticket at the elevator to go to the top. Instead, you get it a few doors down. This is a stunning church with gothic type features and oh the gold! At the top, great views of Munich. Relax up there...More

you must go up the tower if you can take the walk, it's a bit tiring but the views from the top are wonderful. You can see out as far as the Olympic tower and look down on the Rathaus and the Frauenkirche. Take your...More

This one of several "must see" churches in the Altstadt. The church is a beautiful Germanic Gothic cathedral. It is also a working church so the lovely smell of the incense and the somber mood is throughout. The artwork, paintings and sculptures are impressive. Take...More

St Peter's is right along the tour route and old town/square area. A beautiful church inside. The gold everywhere is remarkable
