I had 48 hours in Munich.. very short for such a beautiful city. The Baroque church (Kirche in german) worth the visit, especially when you know that it was nearly destroyed during WWII. A nice church that you must see.

The baroque interior of this church is incredible and definitely worth a quick visit. There is so much intricacy and the plain white interior really does help to bring out all the fine details. It is located in Odeonsplatz just opposite the Munich Residence, and for €2 Mon-Sat you can visit the crypt (however we visited on a Sunday and... More

I think this was our sixth church before noon...and together with the major scaffolding out front, it just didn't impress as much as some of the others.

This church is really beautiful. It has an amazing baroque exterior.. However at the moment it's beauty is somewhat spoilt, by scaffolding. Inside it is very small, but so ornate. Definitely worth a visit

The interior of this church is amazing! The detail, the statues, the tombs, the royal box for the king and queen and the underground catacombs displaying coffins of numerous historical figures ( a 2€ price to enter) are all stunning. The history inside this church is vast. One of the most beautiful church interiors I have ever been in.

Worth paying a couple of Euro to visit the crypt and talk with the priest at the entry. The Bavarian kings and families are buried there.

The magnificent Theatinerkirche's decorated interior surprised me even after looking at photos before visiting. Every little corner is adorned with handlace-like stucco/carved stone, in an austeral and impressive way. The side chapels are an attraction apart, with some works of art worth many hours of contemplation. Plus, it's a nice and welcome relief from the busy streets around.

They are all pretty, but they start looking the same. German architecture, big, dark, with stained glass.
