To say I was intrigued by the name of this church is an understatement. I'm no German speaker, but I know enough to understand that many churches are named for the Catholic orders that built them. Franziskaner is Fransiscan, Augustiner is Augustines, Jesuiten is Jesuit, etc. Theatiner had me absolutely flummoxed so I looked it up un the trusty Ipad,... More

Good place to come after Amalienburg at Nymphenburg, as its outside facade was finished by the same guy, Francois de Cuvillies. The church itself was built a hundred years earlier, for Henriette Adelaide of Savoy, for producing an heir to the throne. This is High Baroque inside, with the Rococo out. Inside is white crisp white, but highly ornamented nevertheless.... More

Different from all the other fantastically gorgeous cathedrals for being almost completely pure white. In my opinion. Some of the most beautiful cherub carvings anywhere (with maybe the exceotion of The Stephannsdom in Passau). Sadly, because reconstruction is ongoing, the entire exterior, amd the 71 meter high interior dome were both obscured by prote tive sheeting

A beautiful baroque church with only very minimal ornaments, which would be expected in a catholic church in a catholic city. It is a place of peace and the almost somber mood of the interior makes one quickly forget the large crowds and feverish pace of modern life. A jewel among churches and very much worth the visit.

The Theatiner Church is an elegant structure viewed from its exterior - though if you visit in the near future you will be disappointed, as it is completely enshrouded for restoration. It's just across the way from the Residenz, so easily found, and by its twin steeples you should be able to spot it from more of a distance. I... More

I was lucky enough to find this church since it was buried underneath scaffolding but once inside, it was very impressive. A mass had just started when I visited and despite knowing next to no German, I stayed for it and it turned out being very special. The architecture is stunning and just as beautiful as the baroque churches in... More

We almost did not enter as the ouside had extensive scaffolding. But we were glad we did, as being a Sunday we were lucky to hear the choir singing in the wonderful acoustics of the church. The white interior was tasteful, probably some Italian influences.

This church is lovely because the colors are so subtle. The interior is mostly white, while having lots of Baroque carvings, columns and details. Of the side chapels, two are extremely lovely: one on the left with lovely brown vine leaves on the columns and another on the right with twisted red Salomonic columns. This church is certainly worth a... More
