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.

  • Beautifule old church. Well worth a visit. In the town center. One of the oldest buildings of the city.  more »
  • This church, peculiar towers is one of the symbols of the city and definitely the most important Church in Monaco, I think it's more interesting to the outside of the inside because it is very bare.

  • 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.
