The outside was on works so unfortunately I haven't been to able to really see it but the inside is really worth visiting! In a way, it looks more like to a palace than a church with its big columns but of course you also find typical church architecture with gorgeous cherub carvings. Don't miss it

Munich has a lot of beautiful churches without a doubt. And this is one of it. Although there is little decoration on walls or ceiling the complete picture is perfect. All the white is giving you a feeling of peace. Definitely worth a visit.

A bit of nostalgia, old history and photos of before and after the war! Whether you're religious or not, this structure reminds you of the beauty and goodness that still can be seen and prevails throughout time!

When you are in Germany, you see such spectacularly adorned Roman Catholic churches, gold, marble, ect. This will be your monochromatic, once in a lifetime experience. But the most beautiful monochromatic canvas you will see. If you enter in the true entrance (for the past 3 trips it has been renovating, so go in where you can), just be sure... More

It's hard to rate churches since they blend together artistically sometimes. For example: all the Italian gold and frescos run together in Italy. This all white interior church is unlike anything I've seen in the world. It's worth a visit, a real treat!

Designed by Italian architects and it was built in the 17th century. This stunning church brought a taste of Italy in Munich. Everything about the church oozes Italian splendor. Designed in thr high Baroque style. The facade in an ornate Rococo style. The inside of the church is made almost entirely of whitr stucco, giving it a very bright appearance... More

We were on a bike tour and walked in to see the inside. A lot of detail and was happy I went inside.

Both towers are undergoing renovation the inside is not affected at all and can not take away the incredible beauty of the place.
