Beautiful Church

A beautiful church, so serene. We thought this was an oasis of calm after the hustle and bustle of the Marienplatz area.

However, this church reminded me very much of Saint Michael's Cathedral in Brussels with the statues overhead lining the aisle - but here the statues are golden. Certainly the Altar piece and the pulpit are spectacular, but the interior of the church is mostly painted white, which for me gave it a nice lite feel. The facade is very plain... More

Great view of the Marienplatz from the top of the tower. Perhaps on clear day you can see mtns. Good exercise to offset drinking all that beer.

With 300 or more narrow steps to the top it is the least expensive lookout place in Munich. Easy to find just off Marienplatz a great 360 degree view on a clear day - early morning is best. The church itself is awesome and regular services continue all the while.

St. Peter's Church offers gorgeous views of old center of town Marienplatz (You can even see the Allianz Arena at a distance). The entrance fee is 2E for adult (1E for child). Climbing the 298 wooden stairs can indeed be daunting but it is well worth the effort. The view of the city is stunning. Climb up only if the... More

A spectacular building from the outside! Didn't go inside but the surrounding area and market was worth exploring!

We didn't visit the church but went up the tower to have bird's eye view of Munich and weren't disappointed. Good 307 steps but it's worth once you reach at the top. Kids enjoy the climb and the entry fee is next to nothing €2 per person. Don't miss if in central Munich.

The tower of St. Peter's is well worth the climb. There is a relatively unobstructed 360-degree view of the entire city from this lofty vantage point. The interior is beautiful with painted ceilings, gilt statues and alter.

St. Peter's is a beautifully detailed church with bright uplifting colors throughout. It is such a refreshing change from the either doom and gloom church architecture or church's so dirty that the colors of the walls and ceilings can't be made out. It is an incredible statement of the powers of the artisans who worked in marble, wood, stone, plaster... More

The church is beautiful, inside and out. It's a great sight and you must visit the top (2euro pp) . Simply walk to the side of the church with a small hut and pay to get in. Then, begun your workout of the day by climbing lots of stairs. Watch out for the railings as I bumped my shoulder! Once... More
