Asam's Church, Munich

(4.8/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A small church hidden behind a rococo façade, which emerges from the stone. A beautiful interior, busy but aesthetic: twisted columns, marbles of color, cherubs, painted ceiling. Discover.

  • Wonderful baroque church, very small but there is so much art packed into it. Very worth a visit, sit and bask in the ornateness.
  • This church is easy to walk by and not even know it. The baroque style church is a little paradise of art and architecture. I've never seen a church with so much detail architecturally and can only imagine the stories behind it.
  • Fabulous little church squeezed in a crowded set of buildings. I have never been to a more beautifully crafted church, well worth visiting.
  • Very tiny church but it has great baroque style artwork... I think one of the best one for that. Amazing!!!
  • Definitely the most elaborately decorated of Munich's churches. It's quite small, you could walk by it and not realise it was there - watch out for the dark clock tower on top.
