Takes your breath away

A must visit. You will be overwhelmed by the structure and paintings. I just loved staring up at the ceiling paintings.

Pretty church, free entrance. Nothing that I'd go out of my way for, but it was on the way, and you could see it in less than 10 min.

Nice church, but not the most spectacular in Munich. The highlight is actually the tower, where you could catch the best view of Munich at a small cost, with the New Town hall and the Munich cathedral in plain sight. Just persevere through the climb and you'll get there :)

Next to Marienplatz you can find the St Peters Church, the oldest in the district. It's a beautiful church worth a visit

we found no specificity to this church, sorry. The good thing was to go up to the top of the tower for the view on the city and on the Alps. 3euros to go up, 1/2 hour to line, 1/2 hour to wait into the stairs going up, 1/2h to go around the tower at the top (very narrow way,... More

You can visit the church but a highlight is going up the steeple. It costs 3€ and you can walk up about 15 floors to an observation platform. Great views all around.

Here you will find Saint Munditia. She is a skeleton decorated with jewels, with false teeth and wrapped in gauze. Mein Deutsch ist schlecht, but I think some German guy purchased a skeleton from a Roman graveyard, he has no idea who she was, and brings her back to decorate the church. This is quite, quite, horrid.

The church was nice inside but the most spectacular part was climbing to the top and getting a panoramic view of Munich. Very reasonable admission too (2-3 euros if I remember correctly)
