  • 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.
