Asam's Church, Munich

(4.7/5 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 relatively inconspicuous from the outside Church, which is embedded in the front of the houses. Inside but an absolute feast for the eyes. The opulent Mesiterwerk of the Asambrüder.

  • Very well located in the pedestrian zone in the Sendling Street, always a popular photo object

  • the whole area there is exciting with the many old buildings nicely restores after WW2; do not miss the small court at the side

  • 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.
