A nice church adjacent to the Viktualienmark and near Marienplatz, St Peter's and the Old Town Hall. While relatively ordinary from the outside, it is uber-baroque on the inside especially its high altar and the beautiful ceilings. Do not pass it by.

The European churches are like museums on their own right. This was a beautiful church well worth a visit and a restful moment. Don't miss the glass casket outfitted in jewels. Thoroughly enjoyed this church right on the town square.

This church is right close to the Viktualienmarkt. We took the side entrance to enter this church. Ornate 14th century interiors of Gothic architecture. Church appears to be really old and requiring maintenance work. Otherwise, it is a beautiful church.

I love all the old churches in Europe. This one did not disappoint. Truly beautiful inside and well worth a visit. Very close to the glockenspiel, go ahead and see both.

Very beautiful church just southeast of the bustling Marienplatz. I really liked the interior entryway arched features. I had just come from Rome - another city full of beautiful churches - and this one helped Munich hold its own.

Sparse on the outside, the inside is a gorgeous Rococo church. If the sun is shining the colors are even more impressive. Stop in- it's free.
