The key feature is the view from the tower: time your visit to match the clock display at the Marianplatz as there is an excellent view.

Fantastic view from above the clock tower. Many steps, so be sure you are physically fit. The cost was cheap, about 2 euros if I recall. Would recommend it.

St. Pete's is still an active parish, so be mindful of services being said while you are inside. We attended Mass, which was in German, but if you are Catholic, you can participate anywhere and know what's going on. Afterwards, we took our photos.

After doing a Sandemans walking tour of Munich the guide recommended us climbing to the top of St Peters for great views of the city. We were not disappointed.

St Peter's should be high on your list of things to do in Munich. It's a bit of a climb, but the views are great. St Peter's is right near many other attractions, so you should be in the area, anyway.

This was our first stop so it really got our hearts going but it was worth it for the view. It is right near Marienplatz do include it as part of your visit there.

If you are up to the 300 plus steps you have to climb, you will experience a fabulous view of the city of Munich.

Even if you're only in Munich for a few hours, you MUST climb to the top of St. Peter's for the breathtaking view over the city. This is the best place to get a great photo of Marienplatz, the Rathaus, the Frauenkirche and Viktualienmarkt. Its a lot of steps, but SO worth it for the views!

Beautiful church, they let you take pictures as well, as long as you remain repsectful of the place. They also organise fests, try to keep posted. If you happen to pass by, take the time to enter!

Very inexpensive (approx 3 US dollars) Wooden stairway to top. I was hesitant to try, but the view from the enclosed top was fantastic for photos. Elderly folks and toddlers may not do well with the open stairway.
