Look up to see "Life of Saint Neopmuk," the ceiling fresco by Cosmas Daminan Asam.

  • Well worth a visit and relatively easy to find. The church has a lot of bling squeezed into it and is a sight to see.  more »
  • The best church I have seen in Munich. The church is a bit small compared to other churches. But artistically it is fantastic.  more »
  • We were able to walk right in...no employers or worshipers (I'm not sure its actively used as a church?). There are postcards and books for sale on the honor system. If you only see 2 churches in Muni...  more »

  • Beautifully done, small church. Amazing carved marble and thr ceiling is painted as if it is a dome, yet flat. Worth the visit.
  • Absolutely stunning interior. One of my favourite churches in Munich. Can get very busy due to its beauty and proximity to the centre of town
  • An small but essential viewing of incredible historical style. Chek it out! X
  • Extremely impressive. Watching from the outside, this church would be easy to miss. This is because this church was actually made by the Asam brothers for private use, and it looks incorporated to the other buildings around it. The brothers where a sculptor and a fresco artist, so they bought 4 buildings, two of which they turned into a private church. These where the central two, and they where connected to the church. For example, Egid Quirin Asam could watch the altar through a window of his private house next to the church (Asamhaus). The church is simply breathtaking. You will need at least half an hour or a whole hour for this little 22x8m church. It is packed with details, and every single detail is filled with beauty. It is considered to be one of the most important buildings of the southern German Late Baroque, and I can see why. Don't miss it!
  • Wonderful baroque church, very small but there is so much art packed into it. Very worth a visit, sit and bask in the ornateness.
