The baroque building from the beginning of the 18th cenury consists of an upper and lower church.
We already visited the upper church before, but were happy that the lower part was open during our latest visit to Munich.
The lower church was originally intended for the printing house of the Congregation of the Jezuites. It was not until the end of the 19th century that the space was converted into a church that resembles a crypt.

I attended English Mass at 4pm this afternoon. I had trouble finding the Church as the Maps app sent me to another (1 block away), then I found the way and it was a great service! It's punctual, people come from different cultures and are participative and everything was clear! Really helpful to find an English speaking Mass. The Church is pretty on the inside, worth knowing it... the area is really beautiful but stores are closed on Sundays, you can find some restaurants of coffee shops open.

This church has two levels..one more modern and the other more traditional. The upstairs is lovely and the Christmas trees up for the holiday created a memorable experience.

There are quite a few interesting church visits to make in the Old Town of Munich including Burgersaalkirche along along Neuhauser Straße, very near to St. Michael's Church.

This is an 18th-century church Rococo style church with a nice reddish coloured facade as well as a lower and upper church inside. The lower church is smaller prayer area while the upper church, which you access by stairs to either side of the church entrance is a very attractive open hall.

The Upper church is delightfully decorated in Bavarian Rococo style with a delightful ceiling fresco, elegant stucco works along with very good use of colour. There is an impressive Guardian Angel with child sculpture, the works of Rococo specialist Ignaz Günther that is well worth spending a few minutes to enjoy.

In the end, this is a beautiful church that is well worth spending a few minutes to enjoy while sightseeing in the Old Town, particularly if you enjoy making seeing historic churches during your travels.

We just happened to find this church near the main square as Sunday mass was beginning. The music was wonderful. The art in this church is amazing.

It’s unusual to find two parts of the same church so contrasting in appearance. The chapel in the basement is plain and has a modern feel to it. It’s dominated by the niches containing statues depicting the Stations of the Cross. There’s also a museum there with some interesting exhibits about Rupert Mayer who was beatified by Pope John Paul II and is buried in the Chapel. When you go up to the main church, it’s a riot of Rococo decoration and design. Very elaborate and very impressive. Definitely not a place to miss if you’re in Munich.

The lower church is very plain, while the upper church is more elaborate. This is essentially a Baroque church with twentieth-century elaborations. The organ, to which we listened for a while, seems to be very good.

Funny enough, I visited this church twice on my last visit to Munich. The first time was to attend the 4PM English Mass which was cancelled on that Sunday. I entered through the door and was a bit confused because when you enter, you do not go directly into the church. It is a room with sculptures of the Stations of the Cross. The steps to the main sanctuary were locked. I left, thinking. OK - no big deal.

I went back a few days later to show my husband the sculptures and wanted to make sure I saw the main sanctuary. When we arrived the curtains were drawn, but the gates were not locked, so we went upstairs and the church was empty except for an orchestra, located in the choir loft, practicing for a performance. It was an absolutely magical moment to be in this beautifully ornate church with the wonderful music. I highly recommend visiting this church, I only wish, I had been able to attend the English Mass.

Beautiful! Glad I got to see it. It's great to visit each church and see the different styles and art. Found the pretzel too!

This building dating from 1709 was originally the 'Citizens' Hall' however in 1778 it was consecrated as a church. I was very disappointed that I was unable to see decorated Rococo interior of the main church. All I saw was the chapel in the crypt which is quite plain and simple apart from the Stations of the Cross statues. I thought that on a pleasant sunny Saturday afternoon with plenty of people about authorities would have the church open, particularly since Rococo churches are not as common as Gothic and Baroque interiors.
