Beautiful church and worth climbing the stairs to get the amazing views! The entrance fee was low (think 2 euros?). It takes a while to climb the steps. It is very tight and you have to step aside to let others through. Once you reach the top it is crowded as well. But totally worth the views! Best photo op!

When we first stepped inside I was worried that was how narrow it would be the whole way up, thankfully it was only the first landing up. We had a good time climbing all 300 stairs up to the top and found it to be worthwhile, especially for only 1.50 euros per person. There are amazing views at the top... More

I like to get up high and look around in cities. The climb to the top of the tower in this church is well worth it for the excellent views of the city, and especially Marienplatz. The church itself has an attractive interior, but the view from the top is what's best about St. Peter's.

After a visit to Marienplatz,i walked up to this nearby church. St. Peters is the oldest parish church (Roman Catholic) in Munich & its famous landmark standing on an elevated hill in Munich.It has had a turbulent past but is still among the tourists favorites in Munich as it is interesting.The ornate interiors have some good works of art like...

I recommend going up the tower. Although the stairs are narrow and it was quite hot, the view from the tower was worth the effort. We could see new Rathaus and overall skyline of Central Munich.

Well worth the 2 Euro to walk to the top. Best view of Munich and the surrounding area. Be forewarned that it can get crowded on the narrow stairway to the top. Best time may be before the Rathaus Glockenspiel goes off.

A really unusual and quaint church. We had never seen anything quite like it before and enjoyed our visit.

on the side away form the marien platz there is a booth and a door leading to very narrow stairs. for a very small view you can get one of the best view of Munich. Not for the claustrophobic or acrophobia.

If you are going to visit Munich, I would say St. Peter's Church should definitely be on the your to-do list. It is a very short walk from Marienplatz and it is well worth the visit. The inside of the church is beautiful. Be sure to check out the grotto at the back of the church, as well as St.... More
