Cathedrals In Munich  

Munich, the capital of Bavaria, boasts of being the third largest city in Germany. The city even has a motto which says “Munich loves you”.  It has many sights and attractions to offer. The cathedrals and churches offer one a most remarkable experience.

Take a look around Frauenkirche or the Cathedral Church of Our Blessed Lady. It is built in Gothic style with red bricks. It took only 20 years to build it, from 1468 to 1488. The architecture is simple devoid of the usual gothic decorations. Its domes on top of the towers were copied from the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. However, they were built only around 1525. Do not miss the Devil’s footstep near the door. It is a small black mark which resembles a foot with a hooked tail.

Munich boasts of another Gothic-style church in the St. Peterskirche or St. Peter's Church. The interior is mostly Baroque style. The tower was built in the 1600s, and has 300 steps. Many visitors actually enjoy climbing these steps to reach the top of tower. It is the oldest parish church in Munich. Today, music concerts are regularly held here. 

Theatinerkirche St. Kajetan should also be on the tourist’s list. The basilica is in baroque style, and its style of architecture has influenced the construction of other churches in South Germany. It took around 100 years to build the basilica with the construction having started in 1663.

Next you can go on to St. Michael's Church. Take home with you a photo of its famous sculpture which depicts the Archangel Michael’s triumph over the Evil One. 

Also, do not forget to visit the Asamkirch, which is in rococo style. The little church is richly decorated with paintings and sculptures.
