It's just nearby the Munich Residenz... Such a waste that the front wall of the Church is under construction during my visit. We almost missed the church... Not to worry, it's just the front wall under construction, you can still visit the church. It's worth to visit the church as it's beautiful.

This was our third trip to Munich and we had never been to this church before. Its that easy to overlook. I mean you're right across from the Residenz, you probably just walked from the Marienplatz and the Mercedes store with shiny toys may catch your eye first. But when you do walk inside you will be stunned, I guarantee... More

The Theatinerkirche, located next to the Residenze, the Feldherrenplatz and the Hofgarten should be always included to get a brief rest from the fast paced city and reflect on some great and amazing baroque architecture.

Church is modest Baroque, under extensive exterior renovation when we visited. Good performance of the Mozart Requiem, but words were indistinguishable. Mediocre acoustics, but a fine orchestra and chorus

What is truly stunning about this church is the totally white interior. Decorated in the baroque style, almost everything in this church is white. This is so unusual for a baroque style of church. Do not miss this attraction!

On my visit to the Odeonsplatz (Reviewed earlier) visited this St.Kajetan church which dominates the square.The yellow facade of the church gives it a meditterranean touch to the church, apart from the overwhelming Italian built influence to the building.The church was undergoing renovation but i could not but help admiring the stunning Italian splendor of the church built in high-boroque...

This church felt more tranquil since tourist didnt outnumber the church visitor. The church has beautiful white ornate interiors. Definitely worth a quick visit near Munich residence.

Ah! The Theatinerkirche was completely bombed out during WWII. Like the Frauenkirche in Munich, it was completely rebuilt. Inside, both sparkle with newness but a newness which, for some perhaps, does not carry the finished beauty of the original. Today, it can be a place for reflection on the war which caused its destruction and on the fervor of the... More

Beautiful church at Odeonsplatz and very near the Residenz complex in the heart of Munich. The outside is undergoing renovation, so don't be put off from going in and enjoying the quiet sacred space. Make sure to check out the historical pictorial of how the church was rebuilt after the war. Incredible effort!
