Beautiful church inside and out. Make sure you spend the 2 euros to climb the tower to get a nice view of the city and especially of marienplatz and the town hall. If you time it right (1030) you can watch the clock on the new tower at 1100. It's a nice show.

The oldest church in Munich with a Baroque interior that will leave you speechless is just the beginning. The climb to the top of the tower will give you a view of the city and miles of countryside worthy of special mention. Join those coming back down with encouragement for those climbing up--they can use it.

Probably the best place to climb in Munich centre to look around and to profit from the good weather. In a sunny day it can be maybe overcrowded in "rush" hours. Anyway the way up is worth the efforts and the little price!

A fun stop for the energetic tourist! I counted 308 steps up this narrow stairway. For 2 Euros this was a popular attraction for the last Saturday in January when I visited! You can walk around the entire exterior behind a wrought iron fence. It is a squeeze with all of the tourists but works out nicely and a panoramic... More

We visited as part of a walking tour. Although the outside is quite plain, like many European Cathedral examples, the interior with all its white and gold, is visually spectacular. Its just out of the main square so it is worth visiting if in the city

What a panorama lookout! This is absolutely stunning and well worth the walk up the stairs. Be warned, there are a LOT of stairs. They are very old and kind of daunting but I didn't mind personally. A good chance to work off some of that endless Bavarian bratwurst and bread! The views extend all the way to the alps... More

The oldest church in Munich; for 2 euros you can have the treat of walking up the staircase in the bell tower to the very top. Its quite a climb, but lots of landing-spaces to rest for a moment, or to allow others to pass up or down. The tower is taller than you think but the view from the... More

We stopped by in here during the OzTour and caught part of a service. Immense sanctuary filled with gold statures and beautiful paintings. Even if you're not religious, as I'm not, you can still find plenty to appreciate about the churches of Europe.

I popped in unplanned while shopping. It just so happened to be during a service. I sat there in silence, resting my weary bones and enjoyed the tranquility. I must see.
