It features a beautiful main sanctuary of floor-to-ceiling frescoes and ornate Baroque decor. Note the magnificent wax statue of St. Johann Nepomuk in the pillar-enclosed high altar. Look up to see "Life of Saint Neopmuk," the ceiling fresco by Cosmas Daminan Asam.

  • It is astonishing! It is small, totally baroque style a bit 'heavy' for some tastes but totally mesmerising! Located in Sendliger Str. quite close to Marienplatz.  more »

  • Not to be missed. Is small but can be defined as one of the masterpieces of the Rococo style. Is full of decorations that make it a gem admission is free.

  • This church is overwhelming, but beautifully baroque. You'd never know the gross splendor that lies inside by looking at the exterior. It's entirely overdone with baroque architecture and your eye darts around, unsure of where to look. But, for that reason, it's worth a quick stop. And, it's right in the old town so easy to get to.
  • A must-see if you are visiting München! Beautiful Baroque decor is absolutely breathtaking. Wrought iron gates were closed so I couldn't go further than the vestibule, but worth seeing nevertheless.
  • This is a narrow, small church on a pedestrian shopping street. The exterior is ornate and is eclipsed by the decor visible indoors. The inside entrance is grated, but you get the idea, Angels and other religious symbols are here in a display honoring the glory of God. Also, look for skulls as a reminder of mortality.
  • Amazing church but they do not provide any services and the front altar is blocked. A most see if you are in Munich. What a wonderful experience.
  • Looked pretty from the outside (and inside, when I peaked in through a window). Sadly, it was closed when I got there. 😭
