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.

  • This landmark is situated not far from the Sendlinger Tor underground station, towards Marienplatz. Visit her required-very beautiful, lush, rich Baroque church. Usually its examination shall be carried out through the bars, but you may be lucky and you will be taken inside after the service! Also in the church lie leaflets about possible excursions.

  • 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.
