When you are in Germany, you see such spectacularly adorned Roman Catholic churches, gold, marble, ect. This will be your monochromatic, once in a lifetime experience. But the most beautiful monochromatic canvas you will see. If you enter in the true entrance (for the past 3 trips it has been renovating, so go in where you can), just be sure... More

It's hard to rate churches since they blend together artistically sometimes. For example: all the Italian gold and frescos run together in Italy. This all white interior church is unlike anything I've seen in the world. It's worth a visit, a real treat!

Designed by Italian architects and it was built in the 17th century. This stunning church brought a taste of Italy in Munich. Everything about the church oozes Italian splendor. Designed in thr high Baroque style. The facade in an ornate Rococo style. The inside of the church is made almost entirely of whitr stucco, giving it a very bright appearance... More

We were on a bike tour and walked in to see the inside. A lot of detail and was happy I went inside.

Both towers are undergoing renovation the inside is not affected at all and can not take away the incredible beauty of the place.

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
