Munich is perhaps the best city in Germany showing history and its landmarks are accumulated almost near to each other. This church is another landmark and its tower is also an exceptional experience.

There is the opportunity to climb St Peter's Church tower. Ber aware that it is a LONG climb! My calves ached for the rest of our stay. The views are worth it, though, if you choose a clear day. The church itself is worth a look, too, but is not as old as it looks, having, apparently, been rebuilt after... More

Visit inside to see a beautifully restored medieval church. The tower climb is well worth it, just 2 euro, for a terrific view of the city, Marienplatz, and, if clear, the Alps. The climb is medium effort I'd say but those with claustrophobia or bad knees should take a pass.

The church itself doesn't look promising from the outside, but it's quite pretty on the inside. What is really great is the view from the steeple. The hike requires climbing about 300 steps, but the view is worth it.

We visited this when there was a service going on. The choir was beautiful! We didn't get a chance to look around inside unfortunately because of the service, but what we could see it was beautiful!

For only 2 euros you can climb the stairs to the top of the tower. Your legs may tremble climbing the tight steep stairs with 2 way traffic but once you're at the top the views will take your breath away. Simply stunning!

St. Peter's Church is a magnificent church located in Munich's central area. This church was bombed in WWII but like most in Munich, you would never know. This church has a beautiful altar that draws your attention right as you walk in.

This church is worth visiting to get some of the best views of Munich. There is a very steep staircase that takes yo to a viewing room. The tower gives a 4 sided view of the city and it is great fun picking out the monuments and well known buildings Beware there are at least 300 steps and it is... More

A very beautiful church. We went there after the Viktualienmarkt. It's just around the area. We would recomment the travellers to see it when in Munich.
