Didn't go inside but up the 300+ steps to the top of the tower. A bit of give and take as there is only one way up/down. The climb is well worth it as there is the most fabulous view 360 degrees across the roof tops of Munich. The best place for pictures of Marienplatz/Rathous.

I know this has been rebuilt since WWII, but it looks very old and majestic. The artifacts are great and the fresh flowers are a different touch.

Worth paying the 2 euros to access the tower and climb to the top to view Munich. You can literally see as far as the Alps - we were lucky as it was a clear day. Word of warning though, if you have health problems, don't attempt the stairs as they are steep and there are many. Also small in... More

The view from the top of the tower is a must for every visitor. One can see the entire old city from up there and the beautiful architecture of Munich comes to life. It’s worth the climb to the top. The church itself is very beautiful. If you want to click some pictures you would want to come when there... More

Tower is hard to climb and claustrophobic. The views are great, so consider yourself warned. The church itself is beautiful and makes for great pictures.

Adjactent to Marienplatz, this church has a friendly open feeling, very high ceilings. When we visited, they had decorated the interior with live trees ( ! ) and hundreds of paper doves flying overhead! It was graceful and beautiful, and left a very lasting impression. Impressive. The colorful murals overhead are very eye-catching, and the embellishments and flourishes in pastel... More

The interior of this 12th century Gothic church is impressive. You have great views on the top of the clock tower. Good photo opportunities.

Went up about 400+ steps to the top. Great view,so worth every step to see all around the city. Not busy when we where there. So didn't have lots of people to pass going up and down. Only 2 euros each. Very good value. Great way to get lots of pictures of the city.

Each Church or cathedral has interest in some common ways so it is not easy to say much about them. Throughout Europe there are many Cathedrals with ornate windows and stonework and altars etc and by the time one has been to about three or four it becomes a little HO-hum. Some of the other churches are a lot more... More
