If you're visiting Munich you absolutely must climb the 306 steps to the stop of the St. Peter's Chapel tower. From the top you will have the best view of the city, the Marienplatz and the Olympic tower. Unfortunately there was some construction when we were there so keep that in mind before you climb!

This includes the beautiful and well preserved church, and the accompanying tower which presents an amazing view of the city. Need to pay about 3 Euros to climb the tower, which is totally worth it. One needs to climb quite a few stairs (About 200) to reach the top. But once on top, you can enjoy a spectacular view of... More

The church was very beautiful. There is a courtyard that is just beautiful. It is sort of hidden so you have to look for it.

Amazingly beautiful and well preserved. So peaceful as well. Easy to just sit and admire the architecture and art and the spirital beauty of the place.

Beautiful Church in the downtown area. It was destroyed during the war and rebuilt by the use of Nazi pictures it was originally from 1368 has relics from Rome from the 4th century. Be sure to see the pictures of what he church looked like after it was destroyed.

This church is rather ordinary on the outside but once you step through the doors it changes. Much more elaborate than I would have expected judging from the exterior. Take the time to stop by.

Took the 199 steps to the top to see Munich in all its wonder! It was a nice climb..left some ladies huffing and puffing and red in the face but made it up without a problem! And it was worth it! The climb and the 3 euros. There was no one in line and only a about a dozen persons... More

A long challenging climb to the top, so pace yourself. Also, not for those who are afraid of small spaces (claustrophobia) or scared of heights (acrophobia). Obviously, the better the weather, the better the view. You can enjoy a great view of the alps, the city, the allianz arena, BMW, oöympic stadium and tower etc. etc... just get up there,... More

What is special with St Peter is u can climb up and get another perspective of the city. Only 3 euros, but beware, no elevators. The staircase is quite narrow so potential to delay the people if you are too slow. But the view is worth it !
