(4.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Famous for its Baroque architecture, St. Michael's Church Renaissance Jesuit church is the largest of its kind north of the Alps. Although the site was almost completely destroyed during World War II, the church has been renovated and now harbors a peaceful atmosphere. Several royals, including King Lugwig II and King Otto of Bavaria, are buried in the church's crypt. Be sure to look for the cornerstone, which was laid in 1583.

  • This is also reviewed as Michaelskirche. Well worth a visit especially on a sunny day. The gold altar piece comes alive in the light.  more »

  • The altar is a massive and beautiful edifice of ecclesiastical bling - extensively gilded and painted. The roof is also lovely, and the Lady chapel to the immediate right as you enter has a lovely icon as well. A service was in progress when we stopped by so we didn't investigate further. Definitely worth a look if you like churches.
  • One of the most beautiful Churches I have ever visited. Sunday's service with chorus and organ is something you should definitely consider visiting while in Munich.
  • Beautiful church, fantastic interior, love that it has survived as the city has grown around it.
  • Nice church. Good for sightseeing .
  • One of my favorite churches in Munich with a special spirit you feel even not being a believer.
