A very popular & old church located just 3min walk from the city centre Marienplatz. It's a bit hidden from the main pathways of the city, but I recommend visiting the place.

Sadly, the tower was closed for renovations or else it would have been nice to see the city from the highest viewpoint in Munich.

Entrance is free

I am drawn to European churches due to their architecture, history and place in society. This was a favorite. Also drawn to views, the walk up the tower provided a lot of anticipation. The view was incredible. The Alps could be seen in one direction. The market was interesting from this perspective and the main square was stunning. There were a group of students behind me and then another large group behind them. After a few minutes, there were too many folks at the top to enjoy the space and I descended.

St. Peter's church was the first church in Munich we explored, and it's worth even a quick visit. The churches in Munich are very friendly to outsiders taking a peek, and they are extremely gorgeous inside. This church was one of my favorites, with a huge sanctuary area that makes you feel tiny when inside. Even if you only spend a few minutes, it's worth popping inside to see it.
