Easily spotted from most parts of the City centre especially the Marienplatz. The exterior is stunning but the interior even more so with the narrow high nave and gorgeous tall windows. Well worth a visit if you're nearby. You can normally ascend the south tower...More

The giant twin towers topped with traditional Bavarian cupola are unmistakable in the historic core of Munich. The decor is sparse inside and out, so just admire from the street on your walk through the historic heart of the city.

An easy landmark to navigate by, the Frauenkirche is visible from nearly everywhere and is a beautiful building in its own right.

Don't know the answer to this. St. Peter is a good idea if you had a good preparation like a lunch or breakfast. I personally did not like the very narrow balcony, It is quite a challenge to pass between two people. But the... More
