Just when you thought that you saw every baroque church in Europe, you "stumble" across Asam's Church on Sendling Tor near the U-Bahn station. This jewel is an amazing example of Baroque mixed with Rococo architecture to create perhaps the most ornate, but stunning neighborhood church in the world. From the outside, it looks like a little church. You can... More

Worth a quick stop. Very ornate, not very big, could not get in when we stopped, but could see inside. This won't be the thing you remember most about Munich, but it is worth stopping by to see.

An over-the-top church with everything. Make sure to see death with his scythe near the entrance. Well worth a visit.

This is small nice church. According to Rick Stevens, it was created by two brothers from fake materials to show their skills to built churches. We really liked it.

This is the one and only church I found stunning in Munich as it is amazingly fancy and a very good example of the barock. Very nice place to be whether you are a believer or not. It's just enought to be an art-lover to go there.

You're on holiday in Munich. You've wandered around looking at the locals and the buildings. You've eaten a your pretzel, had a sausage and drunk several eye-wateringly large beers. Its been nice but what can you say, it hasn't changed your life. And then you accidentally step inside the Asamkirche because you're better half has cleverly read the guide book... More

The church is in a very awkward area - between shops so you can easily miss it. We were staying just up the road from the church so it was an easy walk to it. There weren't many people there around 4 pm so we got a good view. Plan to spend around 30 minutes here - theres lots of... More
