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.

  • Inside I did not liked it, though I really like Gothic. I visited various Gothic churches and cathedrals in Bavaria and the least I liked it. In the middle of not feeling of space, because the tight rows of great columns on both sides of the restrict view. You don't see even Windows. Is associated with the legend concerning the so-called Devil's foot, uwiecznionej in the floor in the back of the Church.

  • 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.
  • Wonderful church and great in the summer months to get out from the hot sun
  • Beautiful church where you can some history. The view in the evening is more colorful.
  • Great sound in the cathedral if you can go when they're singing
