    Nice little hidden church. Amazing architecture. The stairs to the top are outside and it wasn't too bad of a climb. Would recommend to get a great view of the market and the cathedral across.

    We didn't do the climb like many others here but we're lucky that we walk in on a choir rehearsal. With the incense and sunlight peaking through the lovely windows and the beautiful choral singing literally coming from above , it was a simple and surreal feeling.

    The view from the church tower is really nice. It's also pretty cheap, 3€ for adults or 2€ if you are a student. The only problem is that it takes 30 minutes to climb the stairs, and they are pretty narrow so it's kind of difficult when there is many people going up and down.

    a peaceful & quiet place. climbed up the stairs and enjoy the view. few things to consider if you are to go up: 1) it's about 7 to 8 storeys high, take your time going up & down the stairs; 2) walking space is narrow,watch your steps; 3) depends on season, i got strong wind while i was up there in December

    Beautiful place to visit. I actually enjoyed climbing to the top, all that old stuff, you can even see the bells. And view from the top was amazing. München has great things to offer and this is one of them.
