St. Peter's Church, Munich

4.6
For a spectacular view of the surrounding city and the distant Alps, climb to the top of St. Peter's Church. This is the oldest church in the inner city. It was built during the Romanesque period on the site of an ancient monastic settlement. The building suffered extensive fire damage in 1327 and was expanded and re-consecrated in 1368. In the early 17th century, the 92 m (302 ft) spire received its Renaissance steeple top. A new Baroque choir was also added. Inside, look at the high altar for the figure of Saint Peter, created by sculptor Erasmus Grasser. Among other masterpieces, you'll find five Gothic paintings by artist Jan Polack and ceiling frescos by painter Johan Baptist Zimmermann.

  • Church in the right side of the Marienplatz Town Hall. So we can climb up on the Tower body without issue come up on the go. Munich City looking down from the top, lined the roof of Orange are so cute. The climb is subject to charges.

  • A wonderful Church, in Baroque style with elements of Baroque. Beautiful dome. The Church is particularly bright. A clear break is the black lacquered wooden lectern.

  • Nice and old church. It is interesting to visit but main attraction Here is not the church but the tower. Church has a old tower on one side. You have to climb stairs to reach the top. Entry fee is 3€ for adult. But view is spectacular from tower. I would not advice this for children and elderly as there is no lift to climb it.
  • Worth going up This church is located right in the centre of Munich in Marienplatz. I did not go inside of the church but instead took stairs and went up to the observation gallery/desk. View from here is amazing. One can walk along the outer side of the tower to make complete circle. That means one gets 360 degree view. In clear weather, one can even see alps in long distance.
  • It is an amazing Catholic church with a real spiritual atmosphere inside. It is also really beautiful church, particularly inside with fantastic large stained glass windows! Alter would ornamented very fine and artistic. If you would have time, don't miss the tower of the church that it gives you opportunity to have a bird view of Munich old town! Everybody should visit this site in Marienplatz in Munich.
  • The view from the tower is amazing. Work in hindered views you can see across 4th he cities in all directions. A decree of the local government not to spoil the skyline by having tall buildings. Be prepared for the climb, it will test your fitness, but there are rest points. But for 3Euro, unsure why so much.
