Munich is identified by this church's twin onion domes that amazingly survived the bombing of WWII. It was something to take in up close. Built in the 1500's, it is Gothic in design.

This is the landmark church in the city. The two towers are its main feature. Inside it is fine but it is not spectacular. Still worth seeing on a city visit.

Very typical German architecture church, one of the symbols of Munich with its funny looking coupolas on top of the towers

The first building was erected in the 12th century and the building that we are seeing today was finished in the 15th century. So it has a certain history behind it.
Built from brick - due to financial reasons in the time of the construction- the church had become one of the iconic landmarks of the city.
The 2 towers are in excess of 98 m each of them and with the local law in Munich that you cannot build anything higher than 99 meters these to towers will be seen from a long distance towering over the city center.
The interior is also interesting - with stained glass windows that are particularly spectacular when is sunshine outside.
Entrance is free of charge - during the opening hours ... however donation are welcome, or if you would like a souvenir you can find a small shop near the main entrance.
Overall a must see when you are in Munich ... definitely a landmark not to be missed.

Could see this pair of towers from across the city and looked forward to getting up close. Did not disappoint. A vast and mighty building.

The two 96 meter towers (Zwiebeltürme in German) of the Frauenkirche are THE landmark of Munich and figure on many many postcards, ideally with the Alpine panorama in the background. The church interior itself is quite sober, without the wall or ceiling decorations in other churches of the area. Quite a bit of construction and restoration work going on at the moment on the parvis in front of the church...

We really thought this was such a cool and unique church tucked in the side street. We were a bit disappointed that we were not allowed inside since our surgical mask were not accepted though.

Huge church. Beautiful looking from the outside with its twin towers. Looks big from the inside. Not as much details on the walls compared to Asamkirche or St Peter
