  • This church in Munich could not be separated from the side with it. The Church was built at the urging of Bavarian King Ludwig the first outwardly seems pretty simple. nothing remarkable, but the Interior of the strikes and the sizes of the fresco (1836-40) Peter Cornelius. After Michelangelo's "last judgment" in the Sistine Chapel is one of the world's largest wall murals. The Church was built by the architect Friedrich von Gartnerom (Friedrich Von Gartner) in 1829-1844. Church of white stone represents in terms of cross (60 meters dinnoy, 20 metres high). The façade is decorated with two towers, each with a height of 71 meter with six bells, each named for one of the Saints-patrons of the Royal family. The largest of the bells weighs 3880 kg. He calls every Friday at 3:00 pm. Dimensions frescos Cornelius above the altar are impressive: 18 to 11.5 meters. Sculptures of Jesus and the four evangelists met Ludwig von Shvantalerom (Ludwig Von Schwanthaler). Medallions with images of bishops work Gebhard Fugelja (Gebhard Fugel, 1904). Students studying at the University of Munich, piously believe that prayers in churches bring good luck on exams, so during the session you will encounter a large number of young parishioners.
