The double towers can be seen from afar. Approaching it on Ludwigstrasse the full beauty of the façade comes into view.

Inside are some marvellous frescoes, with the one over the main altar being one of the greatest in the world. The view along the central aisle is most impressive. The altar area is lovely. A number of fine sculptures are to be seen.

It was interesting to learn that it has been the model for numerous churches in Europe and beyond.

Very beautiful church, a neo-romanesque city landmark, located in the Ludwigstraße, near to the Ludwig-Maximilian University, about 1,36 km north from the city centre.

It is on the opposite side of the street from the University. You can get there by U-Bahn. The church is huge, built in neo-roman style. It is worth to drop in.

Ludwigskirche, the Catholic Parish and University Church St. Louis, is a monumental church in neo-romanesque style with the second-largest altar fresco of the world created by Peter von Cornelius of the Last Judgment. This is a beautiful painting that was well worth the visit! Time for visit - 30 minutes

The church is situated in the middle of the Ludwigstrasse just opposite to the LMU University building. To get there, you can alight at Universität U-Bahn station which is too close.
Make sure to check the paintings, sculptures and the magnificent altar.
After your visit, and depending on the weather, you can get a picnic in the English Garden or a coffee in the nearby student cafés.
