After doing a walking tour around Munich we visited St. Peter's Church. It costs $3 to climb the tower, all 315 steps. The steps are very tight, there are some resting spaces while you climb.

A tiring climb (30 flights altogether, albeit a few of those are only 3-4 steps) up some very narrow staircases. But worth it all when you get to the top!

It is old and decently ostentatious but i wasn't blown away. It is free so no harm going in there. You can climb up to the bell tower for 3 euros. The climb is up a very narrow set of wooden stairs and goes super slow as you need to make room for others going down. The view from the... More

You pay about 2 euros to climb many many many steps up to the top to see the city skyline of Munich. The stairs are very narrow which allowed only one person to use at a time so it goes down to the patience and courtesy of the tourists to use the stairs graciously. In case you are wondering if...

Don't forget to visit the cellar when kings and aristocrats are buried. The grave of king Ludwig is also there, yes the one responsible for Neuschwanstein.

The Church display iconic features that resembles historical data about religious presence in Germany. If you like to observe religious art, this is a good place.

One of Germany's most beautiful churches. The gold leaf decorated statues of the apostles are worth a visit. Stunning altar. No charge to visit but it costs 3 euros to climb the tower (about 100 steps) for one of the best views of Munich. A must visit.
