I did the free city walking tour and one of our stops was inside this church to see the devil's footprint. We didn't spend much time otherwise but I did think the altar was very nice. Told this was Pope Benedict's home parish.

Frauenkirche, also known as the Cathedral of Our Dear Lady or the Munich Dom, serves at the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. This is a beautiful church that is considered a symbol of the Bavarian capital city. This is an impressive church. Photography, as in the case of most churches in Munich, is permitted in this church.

A short walk off the main street, this church, one of my favourites in all of Europe, is worth a stop. Restored simply but elegantly after extensive war damage, the best features of this church are not seen, but heard. The sound of its bells in the dark of a winter night, slightly muffled by fallen snow, cannot be matched... More

this a must do in munich and it is an iconic building of the city. It is was a shame the building was under construction or in other words, I am glad it was but a shame for us. This is an architectural achievement and a beautiful cathedral inside.

This church is the icon of Munich, you can see it from pretty much anywhere in the city and it's very nice. But the inside is very...empty...and far to be as well decorated as the other churches of Munich are...

On a nice clear day, if you can make it up to the top of the clock tower (about 9 floors high, stairs only, 3 Euros per adult entrance fee in Sept 2016) you can enjoy a panoramic view of the whole city.

The towers of the Frauenkirche are iconic. The interior is austere and plain in comparison with other Munich churches.

An amazing collection of beautiful artifacts and gorgeous stained glass windows. Low key chandeliers dot the passage ways and aisles. Worth a visit.
