    On the way from Marienplatz to Viktualienpark one passes The Holy Spirit Church. The church suffered severe damage during WW II, its interior furnishings were largely destroyed and required extensive rebuilding and restoration after the war. Definitely worth a visit, entry is free, donations are welcome.

    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.

    Even though it was still under construction, you could still see the grandeur and beauty this church has. Definitely one not to be missed!

    We visited this parish on the first Sunday of Advent. It’s an FSSP parish, offering Mass in the extraordinary form. Stunning in beauty! So glad to see all the young adults making a return to the Mass of the Ages.

    Don't let its white front miss lead you. This the most colorful church from its roof tiles to its ceiling paintings and not to mention the single largest church fresco behind the alter. In addition, I read somewhere that this was the first Neo-Romanesque structure and thus the blueprint for many civic buildings in Europe and the US in the late 19th Century. However, it is the artwork and the color that will impress you. Also make sure you get far enough away to see the roof tiles as that only adds to the church.

    It is a shame that more people miss this church as it is away from the town center. However, two u-bahn stops from the Marienplatz will take you to this hidden Gem. When we visited we had the entire church to ourselves which is a rare treat in Munich.

    The Church of the Holy Trinity is not the biggest, grandest, oldest or most beautiful. The reason you come to see this is because of all the great churches, this is the only one that is original. Every great church you see in Munich suffered significant damage during WWII and had to be rebuilt except for this church. While I'm sure the others are true to design and decor, this one is the original stuff from its inception. With that said it is a very small church but every inch is well decorated. I simply liked it for its own beauty but to know this is the way it was truly built and not repaired was important in authenticity. For these reasons you need to stop by when in the area.

    Glass church of a superb modern architecture. It is located some 4.05 km north-west from the city centre. Whole area is very interesting and worth see, especially Bothmerstraße.

    Close to Lehel station in a quiet, laid-back area, Klosterkirche St. Anna is worth popping your head through the door if you're in the vicinity. It's compact, with beautiful Rococo detailing inside, including the usual frescos and intricate detailing. There's also a more modern church straight opposite with an almost Byantine interior.

    The attraction is located at Bogenhausen, not far from city center. The cemetery is arranged around a church (Georgskirche) with a lot of green and trees. The cemetery has graves from many famous German people, like the writer Erich Kastner, the movie director Rainer-Werner Fassbinder or the movie producer Bernd Eichinger.

    The cathedral itself is nice from outside but not very impressive inside. The bell tower visible from all the surroundings and is quite a reference point for walking around. Square in front of the cathedral is wide and hosts weekly markets and the famous Auer Dult. A nice quiet place to visit in every season.

    Pass by with my company from this quiet neighborhood and enjoyed the buildings, churches and the parks near the science university.

    I stumbled upon this church on my way to my hotel, and what a find! Located in the middle of quiet, residential area, this church is worth seeking out. Located right at the U6 Harras stop, and literally two blocks from the S Bahn, this church is easy to find. It is beautiful inside, and after a long day of sightseeing, the perfect place to spend a few moments in quiet contemplation.

    The Abbey Church of St. Anna is a small Rococo style building that is worth checking out if you plan to be in the Lehel area of Munich. It is located just across the street from the large Romanesque church also by the name of St. Anna.

    The exterior is a simple and unassuming facade. Enter the church are treated to a decadent Rococo style architecture, the works of Munich based Asam brothers and Johann Baptist Straub. There are nice altars and frescos worth spending a few minutes to enjoy.

    Combine a visit here with St. Anna im Lehel (Parish Church of St. Anna) just across the street. You can comfortably visit both in 30 minutes time, then continue onward with other intended sightseeing.

    Allerheiligen-kirche am Kreuz (All Saints' Church on the Cross) is one of the many churches you can visit in the Altstadt of Munich. The church dates back to the late 15th century. The exterior is plain brick giving it a more dated appearance than many of the churches designed in Baroque around the Old Town. There is a particularly interesting tombstone embedded into the facade next to the entrance that is worth viewing.

    The interior is simple with hints of its original Gothic architecture in the ceiling vaults as well as a modest Baroque refurbishment in later centuries. The altar is nice to view. Unfortunately, this is one of the churches with a gate separating the entrance from the nave, preventing one from browsing within. However, you can view into the main body of the church through the gate after entering Allerheiligen-kirche.

    Overall, Allerheiligen-kirche am Kreuz is a quick church visit you can make if you are doing the rounds around the Old Town. Give it a few minutes before or after visiting nearby Damensift St. Anna.

    St. Anna in Lehel is a parish church in the Lehel district of Munich founded in 1808 and named for the mother of Mary and thus the grandmother of Jesus Christ. This church, constructed in 1887-1892, sustained severe damage toward the end of World War II and underwent considerable renovation in the 1950s. When I visited this church it was open and void of any activity and I was able to wander around its impressive interior and take a few photographs. This was my first visit to this church, and I'm glad I found it. Persons interested in architecture and religion would enjoy visiting this church.
