Europe is full of church's and I have seen my fair share. This church is like most others I have seen big and beautiful. If you climb the tower (€2) you can see most of Munich.

A must see church right in Marienplatz. The paper bird art installation is so beautiful and really adds to the awe factor of this place. The frescos are lovely as well...the church has such a nice feeling of lightness even with all of its opulence.

We arrived at this church hoping very much to see inside. Unfortunately, there was a notice on the door saying that it was closed for cleaning. However, the stairs to the tower were still open but your reviewers ancient legs decided that, after a whole day walking around Munich, they could not cope with the 300 odd steps to the... More

Very nice view of the Town Hall square and the München surroundings from the tower of the church. A few steps to climb to get there.

This is said to be Munich's oldest church. It is close to Marienplatz and the Viktualienmarkt. Public transportation is close. The church has some relics and a most interesting coffin with visible skeleton. Many church notables are interred here.

I arrived before opening hour, 10 am on Sunday and he hollered at me the opening hour. He did the same to others as well. When I arrived 1 minute early, he did the same. However it is a great view from the top. In spite of this, get there early before the crowds. The stair way is very narrow,... More

We love to visit churches when we're on holiday, the architecture and exquisite decoration is always interesting and each country applies more or less intricate detail to its churches. We found this church to be beautiful and a joy to walk round.

For only €2 you get some great views of Munich - I love a good viewing spot. But be warned - there are a lot of narrow stairs to negotiate before you get to the top! (But it's worth it)
