One of the most beautiful churches I have been. I learned St Michael is the largest Renaissance church north of the Alps. You step out of the busy pedestrian zone between Stachus and Marienplatz and enter a quite and breathtaking place. Between the two entrances a large bronze statue shows the Archangel Michael fighting for the Faith and killing the... More

We visited here first and this church is truly a Catholic affair. It is so beautiful and ornate with a beauty of spirit. You can pause a bit and reflect upon your day. There is plenty to see here.

Not as peaceful as St Peters, and a very lain exterior, but this masks a more amazing interior. We visited just as mass was getting under way on a Sunday morning, so did not stay long, to be respectful to worshippers. The location of the church, juxtaposed against modern neon-lit shops makes for an interesting photo opportunity.

The church is very central and one of the oldest. Do not miss the crypts as this is where the atmosphere changes. Here you will find the lead coffins of the Royals and its a real strange but interesting place.

It is a very nice church in the middle of the old city, which is worthy to visit. The building and the sculptures and paintings are beautiful and thankfully photography is allowed.

Very peaceful place! A small donation of (I think) 2 Euros gets you a little book about the church, which is worth it for history buffs like me. Beautiful sculptures and paintings, and thankfully photography is allowed. Pay another Euro or two and head downstairs to the crypt to pay the Fairy Tale King himself (Ludwig II) a visit. Lots...

Another one of the classic churches, perhaps the outside being my favorite. I found all the churches to be so rich in history & art and so very empty in feel and experience. None-the-less worth stopping in for a quick look, no need to stay long.

Its on the Maxburgstrasse and close enough from U & S bahn. You open the main gate and see the other steel gate so cant go to the inside church. Its absolutely gorgeous church. Its very high dome ceiling as usual many other cathedrals. However, no English explanation!

Well worth a visit. One of the many churches in Munich to look at. At least admission is free and it is a good place on a rainy day!
