Frauenkirche, Munich

4.0
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.

  • Were here with the Guide, very interesting about the footprint of the devil. It was a little uncomfortable praying in front of the people who have come to sit and think about something else.

  • Beautiful Gothic Cathedral. It is the largest church in Munich and impresses by the height of its towers. The façade is in retirement.
