The amazment is over flowing with each church you visit. The large area and high ceilings are jaw dropping.. The church was a very powerful influence of early times, that is more apparent as you visit these grand buildings.

It is a test on your fitness to climb all the way up the narrow stairways. Basically it allows you to view the entire city of Munich. Pretty narrow and can be crowded so you often have to squeeze through to move around. Good to view the 12pm/5pm clock dance from here. If you hate the climb, then you can... More

Made the climb to the viewing platform on the tower and the view was lovely. Luckily it was a sunny day and you could see all landmarks from the BMW tower to the park history Oktoberfest. Gave a nice view of the Marienplatz and viktualienmarkt also.

If you are in Munich you should check this place out! For 2 Euro you can climb up the steps to the top of the church and the views are magnificent. I would not recommend going right after a night at Oktoberfest, or hungover in general. The stairs are steep and the corridors tight. There is only one lane so... More

This was one of a number of churches visited. All were very personal to the respective congeregations, and all were magnificent in terms of architecture, reverence, appeal, and presentation. We even struck two churches which were conducting weddings!

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

Very beautiful and very large church. You've got to see it the church is very beautiful inside. We went during mass so no picture taking.
