Munich Sights

Peterskirche (St. Peter's Church)

Updated 11/18/2013

Fodor's Review

The Altstadt's oldest parish church (called locally Alter Peter, Old Peter) traces its origins to the 12th century, and has been restored in various architectural styles, including Gothic, baroque, and rococo. The rich baroque interior has a magnificent high altar and aisle pillars decorated with exquisite 18th-century figures of the apostles. In clear weather it's well worth the long climb up the approximately 300-foot-high tower, with a panoramic view of the Alps.

A Great View of Muenchen

Viewed in the late morning and it was beautiful!!! A great place to start and end your stay in Muenchen as you can see a lot of the places you will/have visited from up top. The climb is a fairly difficult for those who cannot climb more than 3 flights of stairs, but there are some places to sit during the ascent.

Worthwhile Climb

The view from the top is without comparison. It's a strenuous climb to the top but well worth it.
