Create an itinerary including Frauenkirche
The enormous, 15th-century Frauenkirche can hold about 20,000 people. It stands as a symbol of Bavaria's capital city and features a rich collection of artwork from the 14th to 18th centuries. In the nave, you'll find Gothic stained-glass windows and the tomb monument of Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV. Be sure to look for the curious black mark resembling a footprint near the church entrance. This "devil's footprint" survived World War II bombing. You can ask locals about the legends surrounding it. For views of Munich and the Alps, you can climb up the church's 99 m (325 ft) south tower.

  • It has a beautiful exterior, large and awesome. The area has a large square, family friendly space, pedestrian area. I love that several land mark buildings or squares have a large metal scaled model outside to get a sort of aerial view of the space.
  • A must-see in Munich for all tourists and visitors! A magnificent cathedral with impressive Gothic architecture located in the heart of the city, which is also the landmark of Munich. The two towers attract the attention of every visitor from a further distance.
