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.

This is one of the most beautiful churches in Munich. If you can, attend one of the Sunday services, which is still held in Latin Language. Unfortunately, the church will be covered with scaffolding for some time, as it is receiving new paint on the outside.

Munich is full of beautiful landmarks, particularly in the city center. This one was the most breathtaking. Can be included in any walking tour of city center landmarks.

If you like visiting churches, this is one of many you should visit. The sights and paintings are perfect, its on good location, easily accessible. One should certainly spend at least 30 minutes in quiet and peace.
