Frauenkirche, Munich

(3.9/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The interior is very new, modern even. But it was not welcoming. You can see on the outside, without more.

  • The place is a time-capsule of His presence in the world and a place to worship our Lord. Walk around and read the pictures, figures and epitaphs. They tell you about Christian life then and now. Do n...  more »
  • The Gothic Cathedral and parish church "Of our Lady" from the 15th century is and remains the city's unmistakable landmark. But that the Church is the resting place of emperors and even the devil here and should be assumed, not everyone knows.

  • 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.
