A beautiful church. We used Rick Steve's audioguide app and it was very informative. The church has an interesting history. The pope headquartered here during the reformation. It is definitely worth learning about its history!

The church itself is beautiful inside, so don't miss seeing that, but the best part of St. Peter's is the tower. It's quite a climb (300+ stairs) but well worth it so see the panoramic views of Munich, including a birds eye view of the New Town Hall.

As for the tower, the price is great: 2 euros for regular people and 1 euro for students but they should REALLY warn people about the stairs to go up in the tower. The stairs are... More

I always look for the churches you can climb as i love getting a view of the city from above and this was a pretty good one. Although it's a bit of a difficult climb, if you are able to make it the view is worth it. It's also super cheap at 1-2 euros. Be prepared to wait for people... More

Breathtakingly beautiful, so ornate and historic, this is a landmark not to be missed. You can see on the wall the history of the church and how it has evolved over the centuries it is fascinating.

She is the saint of single women (spinsters) and her bones are over 300 years old. She's in a little cove near the door. This church is the oldest in Munich and supposedly on the spot where the monks first settled Munich. It's a beautiful and deserves a visit. Make sure and take a look at the sign outside the... More

I love this style of church and architecture. The crowd around detracts a little, but worth the visit.
