Marvelous royal baroque church which dominates the Odeonsplatz is located about 0.54 km north from the city centre. It was copletely built in 1690 as a gesture of a thanks to God for a long-awaited prince. Inside church there are many burials of members of a royal family Wittelsbach, like Maximilian II Emanuel, Elector of Bavaria, Charles VII, Holy Roman... More

This beautiful building is one to take some fabulous photos inside as the architecture is breathtaking. Sadly it was having some work done to it on the outside and was covered in taupaulin

Just across Odeonplatz from the Munich Residenz is one of the finest churches in Germany. Although neither of us was familiar with the Theatiner Order, we were mightily impressed with the church’s interior as an example of German baroque. Carved plaster, an elaborately carved lectern of some sort of dark wood, side chapels, paintings of saints, and a large, ornate... More

The outside is nice but the inside is even better. This church follows in some of the other European churches in its beauty and grand views inside.

This was our favorite church in Munich. The white interior and natural light was striking. Compared to all the other ornate churches, the Theatinerkirche was a distictive sight.

It is just at the opposite part of the square from the Rezidenz. Right now they renovate it, but if you get inside you willa dmire the beauty of the church. It is worth to visit anyhow.

The outside of the church is still under renovation, but the interior is stunning. Went in three times, come back if there's a service going on!

Mass was in progress so we stayed a few minutes, but to see such an amazing building , so lofty, so ornate,yet so simple (as it is all white) - is a real joy.

Like many other churches in Europe this one is a delight to your eyes. Very close to the Residenz it is impressive both from outside and inside. Extremely beautiful with its high ceiling, the columns and all the decoration, statues, paintings it’s really a nice place to know and enjoy. This one is not one of the most known churches... More

You cant miss this church from its mustard colour. It is in the lengthy process of upgrading, and is the Dominican Church. Outside at Christmas, there is a wonderful smell from the Christmas trees that are sold fresh and are strewn all over the floor of the square in front of the church. You can also purchase wreaths and branches.... More
