This is a one of a kind church. It is jaw-dropping and of all of the churches my husband and I have seen in France, Italy and Germany this is one of them that I will never forget. The style is not for everyone but the pictures don't do it justice - go see for yourself.

This little church will is jaw dropping and beautiful. It's so unassuming, but when you walk in you feel you're in a whole other world. Short visit, about 20 minutes, but not a far walk from the Victualienmarkt so definitely worth your time if you have it.

We were lucky enough to visit during an organ concert - very lovely. We also visited the Weiss Church in the country side another fine architectural example.

One hears in the USA how few Europeans are practicing Christians anymore. During our recent visit to Germany, we visited seven truly spectacular churches. Of the seven, four were being used (Mass, Baptism, etc.) at the time we visited. That is most encouraging. This very small church is a must-see destination when in Munich. It is nothing much from the... More

I'm not ordinarily a huge fan of rococo, but this little gem of a church is truly amazing. There is no fee and there can be a crowd, but you should definitely see it to believe it!

Possibly the most beautiful room you'll ever set foot in. The marble columns, paintings and ornaments make this arguably Munich's finest church. Off the beaten track, but worth the walk down the less-visited Sendlinger Strasse.

If you like richly decorated churches, don't you miss it. It is easy to be found, just off the city center.

It`s a baroque style. I liked ornamental of the main altar but I disliked the extremely crowded of its walls.

You have to see it to believe it. Pictures don't do this small church justice. The outside is pretty, but the inside is out of this world. The church is small, so you can view it in about 5 minutes. No flash photography.

NIce little church and will take you a few minutes to see.It's easy to miss this small gem in Munich. It is tiny, but well-worth seeing once in a lifetime.
