Each Church or cathedral has interest in some common ways so it is not easy to say much about them. Throughout Europe there are many Cathedrals with ornate windows and stonework and altars etc and by the time one has been to about three or four it becomes a little HO-hum. Some of the other churches are a lot more... More

This is a must to see a 360 degree view of Munich and beyond. for a small charge you can climb high up the church tower and get a bid's eye view. It can get crowded however and makes the climb up the stairs quite long and perhaps a bit claustrophobic. The views at the top though are stunning and... More

We wandered into the Church and were stunned by the magnitude and beauty. It was very quiet and peaceful until my 10 month old decided to test the acoustics which I can not attest are amazing.

The highlight was walking all the way up to the tower, which is not something you can forget given how long we kept walking! The church itself was somber and we were lucky to catch a mass in session. Peaceful in a rather crowded neighborhood.

Don't miss this beautiful church just off the Marienplatz. Please remember to be respectful. Take off your hat, and no flash photography.

We climbed the tower by st. Peter's Church to see the view. It was a lot of steps and I'm in great shape, but they were narrow and unevenly spaced. A long way up and extremely crowded. There also were high grates all around. I probably would not do it again. You have to take pictures through the greats and... More

Takes quite a few steps up with narrow staircase but worth the climb to enjoy unbeatable panoramic view of the city including the Rathaus and the south industrial side of Munich.

Only 2 euros, the 303 stairs certainly get rid of the beer. Nice church inside, but so many churches in Munich its easy to get churched out. The view from the top is fabulous and makes for good photo's if it is not too crowded, the day i went up it was impossible to get moved as a large group... More

Nice church that is no effort to see if you are in the centre of town as its right on Marienplatz. Didn't go up the tower to see the view though.
