This is another amazing baroque style church that i stumbled upon. I didnt know that there was this church but i thought there are some interesting decorations at the exterior of the building. Once inside, i was amazed. There are many motifs decorating the walls and ceiling of this church. The artwork and the workmanship is amazing. I can't describe it enough, one must view it to feel its awe.

Stunning details carved into the interior walls and ceiling. The white interior is magnificent! It’s free to see and has never been crowded when I’ve visited. Built in the 1600’s. Open from 7 am - 8 pm every day. Take train and get off at Odeonsplatz train station.

Also see odeonsplatz square/Feldherrenhalle (meeting place of Hitler rallies), The Residence (palace of the Wittlesbach family), a few minutes walk to the famous Marienplatz, Frauenkirche (women’s/Mary’s church) and St Peter’s church.

The Theatinerkirche on Odeonsplatz is one of many beautiful churches in Munich and is definitely worth a visit, regardless of religion and culture.
From the outside, the facade rather plain in yellow, in the Rococo style. Impressive and overwhelming from the inside. The high altar, the columns, the statues, great and impressive stucco. A mixture of baroque and rococo.
Simply let it work and enjoy for a moment.

Entry is free, which is no longer the case with many religious houses (regardless of religion). Can be combined well with the Hofgarten or the Königsplatz (Alte Pinakothek and Glyptothek).

The churches in Europe are so historic in its design and elegance. This was another beautiful church with nicely designed altars and a long row of pews. I would recommend giving it a look inside if you happen to walk past it.

We were passing through Odeonplatz and I noticed the church across the road. The yellow building stood out from the other grey buildings in the area. We didn't have time to go in and have a look so can't comment on the interior. The two towers on the front also looked like they had clocks.
Quite an interesting building to look at if you're in the area.

An impressive looking church and in a striking and unusual colour... Lovely contrast, even under grey skies. Impressive square.

Theatinerkirche in Munich is a somewhat hidden gem just across the street from the Munich Residenz. This immense building is adorned with some of the most incredible plasterwork, altars and murals that you will ever see. If you visit Munich, make sure to stop in and see this place...you will not be disappointed!

This church, which dates back to the mid to late 1600s, is well worth visiting. While not as ornate as some of the other churches in Munich, this one may be described as "simply elegant." It is located adjacent to the Munich Residenz. Photographs are permitted.

There are a fair number of nice churches you can visit in Munich, including Theatinerkirche (Theatine Church), which faces Residenz at Odeonsplatz. This church was constructed during the second half of the 17th century, while the exterior facade dates back to the mid 18th-century.

What you find here is a delightful Rococo style exterior that creamy yellow in colour. The facade is two-tiered and flanked by two towers with clock faces and nice ornamentation. The church interior is High Baroque style, adorned with a great deal of delightful stucco works lining the church walls and apse. The nave is lined with Corinthian style columns and more stucco ornamentation. The delicately carved Baroque style pulpit is worth a look see as are the side chapels.

Allow 10-20 minutes for a visit to Theatinerkirche. For nice photos of the church facade, walk all the way across Odeonsplatz, standing in front of Residenz. From here you should be able to fit the entire church in your camera lens.
