If you can handle the 300-odd steps the view is well worth it. Surprisingly quiet the day I visited (around 10am on a Friday) the views of the city and the central square are amazing. At €2 the price is pretty reasonable compared to a lot of "vantage points" in Germany.

St. Peter's is a splendid confection of pure Bavarian Baroque constructed in purest white and gold. On a warm or even hot day the interior is cool and an ideal spot for a few moments refreshing rest for the body and the soul. At the moment (May 2015) there is a spectacular display of white doves coming from the sanctuary... More

I frequent churches in Germany often, and this is one of my favorites for one particular reason: It has the jeweled skeleton of St Munditia, featured in Paul Koudounaris's 'Heavenly Bodies' book. I have the book (I've had a fascination with the macabre since I was a child), so it was super neat to see one of the skeletons in... More

I walked up the tour for a Euro and the views from the top where just magnificent. I arrived at the top at 12 and little did I know but the clock on the square was going to start dancing. Hearing the bells ring across Munich and then seeing the clockwork figures from above was an unforgettable experience. The church... More

St. Peter's is located in the heart of Munich between Viktualienmarkt and Marienplatz within the pedestrian area. The best part is its tower, which, after having climbed quite a number of stairs, provides a great view over Munich.

This is one of the best attractions in Munich. For only 2 Euros you climb the stairs to the top. So a free exercise, but doable for almost anybody, it takes maybe 10 Minutes or so. You get a stunning view of Munich all around and see the whole city, Allianz Arena, and depending on the weather a clear view... More

Best 2 Euros I have spent. 5-10 minute climb up. But certainly worth the view. Narrow stairways, but we saw all ages managing to get to the top, and even saw one group of young people carring their roller bags up the stairs. They were getting a work out!

This Cathedral has an incredible ambience. Beautiful art, ceilings and statues. An amazing job done on the rebuild since being nearly completely demolished in WW2. Simply incredible

We climbed to the top of the bell tower - about 306 steps which can be demanding but once at the top the views are well worth the climb. If you are in good physical condition it is a "must do"
