Don't miss this beautiful church just off the Marienplatz. Please remember to be respectful. Take off your hat, and no flash photography.

We climbed the tower by st. Peter's Church to see the view. It was a lot of steps and I'm in great shape, but they were narrow and unevenly spaced. A long way up and extremely crowded. There also were high grates all around. I probably would not do it again. You have to take pictures through the greats and... More

Takes quite a few steps up with narrow staircase but worth the climb to enjoy unbeatable panoramic view of the city including the Rathaus and the south industrial side of Munich.

Only 2 euros, the 303 stairs certainly get rid of the beer. Nice church inside, but so many churches in Munich its easy to get churched out. The view from the top is fabulous and makes for good photo's if it is not too crowded, the day i went up it was impossible to get moved as a large group... More

Nice church that is no effort to see if you are in the centre of town as its right on Marienplatz. Didn't go up the tower to see the view though.

Yes.. a lot of narrow stairs - 303 to get to the top of the church -- but if you can manage to climb all of them, you will be rewarded with a 360 degree view of Munich.. and it's lovely. Not expensive either... but can get crowded.

One of the highlights of my visit to Munich. The interior of the church is awe inspiring however you don't want to miss a climb to the top of the bell tower. There are several landings on which to rest and the view from the top is one you will never forget. Very safe!!!

This church is worth a visit for all the usual reasons, that is, its beauty and history are inspiring. But this church also boasts a magnificent organ. For music lovers, it would be worthwhile to seek out a concert. We were fortunate enough to attend an instrumental and choral rehearsal. It was a memorable experience and a highlight of our... More

We visited the Square to see the working of the church tower at 11 am. It was well worth while. The church was also very interesting as were the markets and shops in the square in front of the Church.
