A beautiful church that is lit with natural lighting from the many well placed windows. An aura of light and and calm. Gold sculptures adorn every pillar and the altar is magnificent. €2 to climb to the tower but there was a long line so I didn't do this.

When you stand in St. Peters Church, you are just overcome with the stunning beauty. When we were visiting, the choir was singing and it was so inspiring. It is well worth the time to stop in and take a look no matter what faith you are.

Such an amazing beautiful and impressive style and ambiance of a church. I have been there in December before Xmas and it was very mystical by the sunshine coming in through the coloured window glasses.

After visiting the church inside, take a look on the view from the tower. You need to pay 2 euros entrance, cheaper than Marienplatz, but you don't have an elevator, just stairs to get on top, also not so crowded. But once you reach there, the view is amazing, and the best part is you can see Marienplatz from above,... More

If you want a good view of Munich then pay the €2/€1 and climb to the top of this church. The view is 360* and you get a brilliant view of the main square.

This is Munich's oldest church. There was a service going on when we went there so we were not able to walk around. Nevertheless the art work was beautiful.

Free to enter the church. 2Euro per adult to climb the ~250 wooden steps up the bell tower to the top. Was a beautiful day when we went so great view up the top and managed to see the glockenspiel perform on the hut from a different vantage point

The ornate interior of this church is beautiful, even understated compared to some other Munich churches. There's a spooky little surprise in one of the side chapels if you're interested in relics. And don't forget about the gorgeous and terrifying view from the tower, after you've climbed the 299 stairs!

The Peterskirche was not part of our plan, but we just happen to stumbled into it when we were exploring Marienplatz and its vicinity. It may not be as spectacular inside as Asam's, but the ceiling fresco is beautiful, and the high alter that just draws your attention right as you walk in. There is also interesting artwork and relics... More
