My husband and I visited St. Peter's Church as part of a city walking tour. We happened to be in Munich on the weekend of the city's birthday - so it was busier and noisier than usual. We came in off a crowded street into the silence and serenity of this beautiful church. It was an oasis of calm and... More

I didn't go I side the church but the climb to the top of the tower is just 2 Euros. The stairs are quite tight and there are about 300 steps so may be suitable for some but the view is worth the climb! Not as high a few as the Olympic tower but I think the perspective is much... More

The Alte Peter. Cnetral, Just off the Marienplatz and the Viktualienmarkt. It is one of the Oldest in Munich and looks superb. The interior at Christmas and New Year is stunning. St. Peter crowns the head of the sanctuary high up on the altar, in a tripe crown. The organ here and the choir are superb. Concerts in the church... More

This is a gorgeous church and a nice place to stop in and appreciate history and art. I also found it to be a nice break from the crowds outside. I wish i had realized you could climb the tower while I was there! Will have to remember for next time I'm sure the views are awesome.

A beautiful church, so serene. We thought this was an oasis of calm after the hustle and bustle of the Marienplatz area.

However, this church reminded me very much of Saint Michael's Cathedral in Brussels with the statues overhead lining the aisle - but here the statues are golden. Certainly the Altar piece and the pulpit are spectacular, but the interior of the church is mostly painted white, which for me gave it a nice lite feel. The facade is very plain... More

Great view of the Marienplatz from the top of the tower. Perhaps on clear day you can see mtns. Good exercise to offset drinking all that beer.

With 300 or more narrow steps to the top it is the least expensive lookout place in Munich. Easy to find just off Marienplatz a great 360 degree view on a clear day - early morning is best. The church itself is awesome and regular services continue all the while.

St. Peter's Church offers gorgeous views of old center of town Marienplatz (You can even see the Allianz Arena at a distance). The entrance fee is 2E for adult (1E for child). Climbing the 298 wooden stairs can indeed be daunting but it is well worth the effort. The view of the city is stunning. Climb up only if the... More
