Frauenkirche, Munich

(950+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
The enormous, 15th-century Frauenkirche can hold about 20,000 people. It stands as a symbol of Bavaria's capital city and features a rich collection of artwork from the 14th to 18th centuries. In the nave, you'll find Gothic stained-glass windows and the tomb monument of Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV. Be sure to look for the curious black mark resembling a footprint near the church entrance. This "devil's footprint" survived World War II bombing. You can ask locals about the legends surrounding it. For views of Munich and the Alps, you can climb up the church's 99 m (325 ft) south tower. Put Frauenkirche at the forefront of your travel plans using our Munich trip itinerary builder.

  • Symbol of Munich that is well known overwhelmingly for new City Hall seems high. Only the admission of visitors to Munich three times is the first. Looking up at the towers from the square outside cafes. One tower was under construction.

  • The Church of our Lady is one of the main symbols of the city of Munich. It has two towers and zwiebelförmige roofs. She can be found not far from the police headquarters between Marienplatz and Karlsplatz in Munich City. It is very high. At the Church of our Lady on the very narrow narrow forecourt, you can have a nice beer or something to eat. The Church is visible from almost everywhere in Munich.

  • Built in 20 years. They said it was built with the help of the devil and his foot print is near the main entrance. Very nice and simple inside. The towers were not bombed and were used as a reference point for the pilots.
  • Very historic and educational place. Lots of history and many shops around the church. Interesting site. We love it.
  • While it's still under renovation, the towers are still visible from afar which makes for a picturesque photo. Do check out the Devil's Foot in the cathedral as well.
  • Great place to visit as a tourist in Munich. Great view and a landmark itself.
  • Fantastic church. A must to visit.
