  • Small, though inside it seems huge. Does not deter monumentalism. The original architecture. Very bright

  • In our travels through Europe, we saw a lot of beautiful Cathedrals. This one was much smaller than many but for some reason, this was one of our favorites on the inside. Highly recommended! 
  • Not only historically very worth seeing. Wonderfully atmospheric. The bronze Angel kiss and light a candle with good wishes. Listen to the organ music and see and be amazed. Looking at the photos show the terrible destruction in the 2nd WK. And a look at the unique facade! My favorite Church in Munich, I love to show my nephews and nieces, and that smartphone without suddenly very quiet and bright.
