Get a close look at the impressive Late Baroque architecture and intricate detailing of Asam's Church. The tiny church was constructed as a private chapel in the mid-18th century. 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. Next door to the church, you can stop by the Asam House to see its South German rococo stucco exterior and ornamentation. The Asam brothers acquired it in 1733.

We visited Asam's Church while taking Rick Steve's Munich Walk. Can just walk in and take a quick picture.

Wonderful baroque church. I am not big fan of baroque but this is really nice one.
Gorgeous church that you can't miss, well.....you can......because it's so small and easy to walk by, but you should put the effort in to find it. This is one of the most intricately ornate church's I've ever seen. It's small but beautiful, the detail that went into this is amazing.
The interiors of this church are breathtaking! It's somewhat hidden in the city center and probably not as famous as, say, the Frauenkirche, but it is definitely worth a visit!
One of the most beautiful places I've ever been!
Beautiful baroque interior. Wikipedia has a wonderful, short explanation of the interior that is a good primer for a quick visit.
