Clearly a beautiful and historic church. Our mistake was going to the top of the tower in the middle of the afternoon. It has a great view of the city, but was crowded with visitors who wanted to spend too long up top. As a result, it became so overcrowded that it was almost impossible to push thru to get... More

St. Peter's is on the Marienplatz, the center of old Munich and on of the big tourist draws. For about 2 Euro, one can climb the church tower and get an outstanding view of Munich. It is a long climb on wooden stars (no elevator), so take your time going up, it will be worth it!

If you are planning to go, make sure you climb the stairs. You will have an awesome view of all Munich.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The church was hosting a Paper Crane fund raising campaign which added to the beauty of the décor!

Excellent views of pretty much the whole of Munich - definitely worth the 2 euro fee, and the many, many steps! Good way to get your bearings.

This attraction is part of the beautiful churches of the old city center, the Saint Peter's Church you can visit the inside and go up to admire the panoramic view from where you have a fantastic view all over the city, especially on close Marienplarz and the famous New Town Hall.

The viewpoint at the top of this church is adrenaline-pumpingly spectacular - if you can handle the endless staircase up! I climbed the stairs (they're not really difficult if you go slowly) hoping for a viewpoint encapsulating the surrounding landmarks of Berlin, at the best. To my surprise the viewpoint encapsulated all of Munich - every single landmark, sight, the... More

If you can handle the 300-odd steps the view is well worth it. Surprisingly quiet the day I visited (around 10am on a Friday) the views of the city and the central square are amazing. At €2 the price is pretty reasonable compared to a lot of "vantage points" in Germany.

St. Peter's is a splendid confection of pure Bavarian Baroque constructed in purest white and gold. On a warm or even hot day the interior is cool and an ideal spot for a few moments refreshing rest for the body and the soul. At the moment (May 2015) there is a spectacular display of white doves coming from the sanctuary... More
