Munich Sights

Ludwigskirche (Ludwig's Church)

Updated 11/18/2013

Fodor's Review

Planted halfway along the stark, neoclassical Ludwigstrasse is this superb twin-towered Byzantine- and Italian-influenced church, built between 1829 and 1838 at the behest of King Ludwig I to provide his newly completed suburb with a parish church. From across the other side of the road, look up to see the splendidly colored, 2009-finished mosaic on the church's roof. Inside, see one of the great modern frescoes, the Last Judgment by Peter von Cornelius, in the

choir. At 60 feet by 37 feet, it's also one of the world's largest.
