Asam's Church, Munich
(4.7/5 based on 1,800+ 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.

  • I just like to share my discontent caused me this visit. I went with my girlfriend and I quickly regretted it. Children laughing and so bothered us without getting out of the Church. In addition my girlfriend's it stole his camera.

  • The doors are great, but inside you can only see the church through a gated grille at the moment. Not sure if this is permanent, but you can't see up close. 
  • Sunday walking around I noticed this church and I walked in, was recently started mass and I was enchanted by the music suave ... was a lady who played the harp, and a lovely choir singing, although don't know the words sweet and melodic sound excited me and I got to hear all the Holy Mass, the gentlemen were very kind and made me sit and I felt at home. beautiful.

  • 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.
  • This church is small, but the late baroque/rococo artwork is just impressive. There is also no entrance fee and it is pretty close to the city centre, meaning it is worth visiting.
  • Very impressive: small but all gold-plated. You'd almost miss it in the street but it's worth a peek inside.
  • So incredibly beautiful! Ig only we can walk around inside and see all the details close up
  • Wonderful private church. A must to visit. Read about it, the story is also very interesting.
