Almost missed this one, because it is located within the storefronts approaching Marienplatz. Glad we found it though. Very pretty!

This church was very close to our hotel near Sedlinger Tor. The outside is quite ornate but the inside is the highest concentration of gold & decor I have witnessed in my many years of travel. Worth a quick visit when passing in this neighborhood.

If you like baroque or want to understand what it is all about, then this is a must. Lovely littel church with so much decoration in it that it is hard to imagine it could take any more. Spend some time inside, sit down and simply let your eyes enjoy the details. Take it in!

The lovely Baroque façade is an apt introduction to the marvels inside. The interior decoration is one of the glorious creations of the Assam brothers. The vista along the nave is awe-inspiring. Every space is adorned with ornamental works. The altar area is wonderful. There is much statuary, with many gleaming white. The ceiling fresco is wonderful. Another highlight is... More

We visited Munich last year and loved this little Baroque gem and popped in again for a look round, amazing what can be packed into a small taste, its free and over the top , fantastic little stop as we went on to Viktualienmarkt.

This stop along Rick Steve's Self-Guided Munich Walking Tour was absolutely astounding. It was created for the purpose of showcasing the Asam brother's merchandise for churches. You can't imagine how much art and architectural detail is packed into the small space the church occupies. Very fun stop and well worth it!

Wedged between two residential buildings, this church seems misplaced. However, when you step inside you are amazed. It apparently was built like a showroom to show how churches could be decorated. Interesting.

If you like barok art, it´s a must; if you don´t, you should go as well and you´ll be impressed! Free.
