Definitely climb the tower!

You need to climb the tower as you will get the panorama of the whole city. Students - 1€; adults - 3 €. Try to go up there when the clock of the new city hall makes the show.

A haven from shopping frenzy. Worth a few minutes of quiet contemplation. Take a seat, rest your feet and say thanks.

We drove the romantic road so we've seen some beautiful churches in Bavaria. Once here in Munich we didn't have any churches on our must do list. My husband is here on business and his free time is now limited. One day I did the free city walking tour with Sandeman/New European and due to the Christmas Market they changed... More

St Peter's is definitely worth a visit. It's actually quite bright and airy inside, unlike some of the more somber churches and cathedrals in Germany, especially compared to the nearby Frauenkirche. You can also climb the tower if you want, for a fee.

One of the most beautiful buildings i have ever seen. Such a lovely warm atmosphere. No photos inside but round the corner outside you can climb 300 steps and see an amazing view of the city. 300 sounds ok but its tough going. Def not for the faint hearted or kids!

We lined up around 3:45pm to climb the tower and by the time we got to the top the sun was beginning to set so it was pretty perfect timing. You have to walk up just over 300 steps to get to the top, but it isn’t as bad as it sounds. Once you get to the top, you really... More

What a surprise as we are walking on a pedestrian street that heads directly into the heart of Munich. Shops every where then a small building that seems to be squeezed in as an after thought. Behold a small but elaborate Rococo adorned master piece. A must see and will only take a few minutes but we lingered.

The Parish Church of St. Peter, the oldest church in Munich, is a truly work of art.. I have visited it on a number of occasions, bu this was my wife's first time. During this recent visit to this remarkable house of worship, we noticed that an Advent Concert was being on the first Sunday of Advent. We attended this... More

Old world charm from a beautiful church. Beautifully maintained. Easy walk from the main square - just be quiet when you visit.

if you want to have an amazing view from the city this is the place to go but get ready it has a lot of steps and chairs to climb. If you cannot move/walk easily then this is not for you. More than 300 steps on steep stairs. they do have a few seats during the way but if you... More
