This beautiful church overlooking Marienplatz is full of relics & near the entrance some pictures of the bomb damage of WWII.We did not take the 306 steps to the spire(no elevator) but enjoyed the ceiling frescoes and altar ornamentation. Definitely worth a visit.

Don't let the 300 steps deter you. There are lots of places to stop and catch your breath, plus you need to wait to let people come down anyway. Great view of the city. If you time it right, you can have the best view of the Glockenspiel chiming away in the Rathaus (e.g. 11 a.m., 12 noon, etc.) However,... More

Great church just off the Marienplatz that is historic and feels like it. Must see the skeleton in the glass case on the left side of the church.

The church is beautiful and worth a visit. My daughter wanted to climb the 300 steps up to the top of the tower. I was very hesitant because we had several souvenir bags but the very nice ticket lady offered to keep my bags. The fee was small, $1-2 euros. She said the steps were small and there were places...

For two euro's you can get the best view of Munich and see the Alps on a clear day to the south. The only downside is there's plenty of stairs and bottle necks you'll need to negotiate with people coming up and down. Not pleasant if you're claustrophobic but it has wonderful views from the top and well worth the... More

There are lots of steps up to the top of the tower but you are rewarded with a great view over the Marienplatz and Dom. Tickets to visit the tower were €2 each

We really don't know what you can see today, from the tower. Something like 35 years ago we went up, and it was really a good overview about the main features of the town. Nowadays we only admired the bueatiful church interior which is richly decorated. Most probably the oldest chruch in the city.

As far as grand European churches go, there is nothing particularly special about this one, however it's view. Wonderful view of the city and Bavarian Alps, and for 2 Euros it is a bargain. The only tragedy is that they have this metal cage going around the entire top that prohibits a good picture of yourself with the buildings in... More

I would highly recommend going up to get great views of Munich, Marienplatz and the surrounding landmarks. It really helped me to figure out where everything is situated because I only had 1 day in Munich to see all the main sights. It cost 2 Euros to go up and my only warning is the following: there are a lot... More
