Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady (Frauenkirche)

Which landmark particularly stands out in Munich's skyline? That would be the Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady or Frauenkirche, the church featuring two onion-shaped domes on top of twin towers that reach 99 meters (325 feet). But it's not just the church's architecture that makes it stand out, by law no other tower can be taller or obstruct the view of this symbolic Bavarian building.

Near the entrance of the catherdal is the famous "devil's footprint". According to legend, the devil stomped his foot at this spot when he thought the architect had forgotten to put any windows in the church, before realizing the illusion. Enjoy panoramic views from the south tower and the art of Erasmus Grasser, Jan Polack, and Hans Krumpper that decorate the interior of Frauenkirche.

Practical Info

Located just off the bustling Marienplatz, the Frauenkirche also regularly holds Catholic services in addition to being a tourist hotspot. Another interesting part of Frauenkirche is the crypt containing many important members of the Bavarian ruling Wittelsbach family, most notably the black tomb of Emporer Ludwig VI, one of the treasures that was luckily saved from the bombings in 1945.
