Curious by the Devil's Footprint, I headed for this church to see it for real. It's a high-ceilinged church with Cenotaph of Emperor Louis IV, one of its significant feature. While standing near the Devil's Footprint, looking ahead at the altar, the ceiling somewhat resembles...More

We really had to stop at the Frauenkirche after reading the legend to the Devil's footprint. Lovely Catholic church, but as with most German buildings, the fact that it's rather newly rebuilt, for me, at least, lessens the experience. But if you're strolling through the...More

This is a lovely church. Ceilings incredibly high, fascinating stained glass, intimate chapels etc. Well worth poking your head in.

As of now (sept. 2018) renovation work is still going on, but having a look at this church is a good idea. Take your time to enjoy and discover interesting details.

Liked the twin 'onion towers' of this church in Munich centre although the interior not as impressive as I'd imagined. Interesting tomb for Ludwig 1V.

Just down the street from the Marienplatz you will find this iconic church. The church is made out of brick not stone. Very plain on the outside but beautiful on the inside.

This church is located right off the main square, it was very beautiful and has an unique history in that fact Pope Benedict was the priest here in the late 70s. This is also right next to St. Michael's so can you stop at that...More

A very nice cathedral. Only the scaffolding is the problem, but I understand that it’ a necessary to reconstruct the situation and make the people an unrepeatable experience. But I don’t understand, why isn’t used a decorative sail that can cover the scaffolding. It’s commonly...More

Don't know the answer to this. St. Peter is a good idea if you had a good preparation like a lunch or breakfast. I personally did not like the very narrow balcony, It is quite a challenge to pass between two people. But the... More
