This Church is well worth a visit to ,the architecture inside the Church is amazing and very different to lot of the other Churches we visited during our holiday in Europe, also worth paying the 3 euros to climb up to the top of the tower and see Munich from up above.

Just a few steps from Marienplatz, amazing church and surprisingly very few people (tourists) visiting - which was great. I could spend hours looking at the ceiling. Must see for church lovers. Good activity when the weather is freezing outside and wet.

Very nice to just sit and admire the ornate metal work and gold leaf and appreciate how the Roman Catholics decided to use the money they collected on gold leaf statues rather than spend it charitable like the CofE

I don't remember much of the interior but paid 3Euro to climb to the top. It is about 300 steps and at certain places, narrow. Once you arrived at the top, the balcony area that goes round the tower is narrow, please follow the signs to walk in one direction only. Note that it will be a lot of waiting... More

I have known and loved this church for 35 years and each time I visit Munich I must go and see if St Michael's is still the same. It never fails. Peace and serenity reign despite the tourists. The interior is light and bright (so often not the case in some Catholic Churches!). The golden high altar is stunning and... More

An absolutely beautiful old church and a must see if you are in the Marienplatz area. The architecture and interior are splendid, and for even more of a treat, go up the spire for absolutely wonderful views over the city of Munich. It is a lot of steep stairs though.

Another example of beautiful architecture, worth a walk through and pictures. The day we were there, a small children's choir was singing Christmas songs.
