Climbing to the Top of the Peterskirche

By John Reality, Cambodia, September 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Not for the faint of heart, the climb up the 302 steps that lead to the top of the main steeple at Peterskirche (one of the oldest and most notable churches in Munich’s center, also known as St. Peter’s Church) is worth every gasp and every strain. The view from the top is truly impressive, and the church itself is deserving of a proper, lengthy stay, and some careful investigation.

The building has suffered damage many times over the years (most notably during the great fire that engulfed the city in the early 14th century), but each new addition and reconstruction has added key elements to the design that visitors and residents have come to know and love.
