This church is being renovated on the exterior but the insider is open and you should make this a site to see! We were in awe upon walking into this church. We had never seen anything like it before. The white plaster carvings are remarkable and leave you gazing at all the intricate detail.

The one compelling point about the church is the amount of detailed artwork within every area. No matter where the eye move, each column, wall, nave and area within the church had a meaning and purpose from an architectural perspective as well as religious perspective. A suggestion is to go to the church late morning/early afternoon as the mid-day sunlight... More

My personal favorite, sort of an antidote to the excesses of the Asam church. All in white, hardly a bit of gilding to be seen. I drop in here whenever I need a bit of rest and quiet in the middle of the city.

This church is very beautiful due to its yellow color (outside) and its white color (inside). The only one problem is that the church is under remodelation (refurbishment) works. You need to see how amazing it is inside the church.

The cute yellow facade is just a mere illusion that the church will be nice. Instead the interiors are awesome. The white walls and arches are just flashing and shocking you. YOU HAVE TO GO!

This enormous and beautiful church is not to be missed. Amazing plasterwork and an all white interior (unusual for Munich churches) make this architectural masterpiece one of a kind. Great for architecture and history buffs and a nice place to have a quiet moment away from the crowds.

The tour guide mentioned that this was a really good example of parental love. And it really was. Very nice church, interesting and beautiful decorations. Worth the visit.

Of the 5 or 6 cathedrals we saw one afternoon, this was my favorite. It is white marble of amazing carvings. Truly peaceful. Do not miss.

You can still go into the church's interior even during the external renovation. There are access ways available, though they aren't obviously labeled "eingang," just look for a walkway to the door.
