This is the seat of the archdiocese and is one of the most recognizable structures in the city. One can see the towers of the Frauenkirche from quite far away. This is mainly due to height restrictions that new buildings have to follow in Munich.
Built over a period of 20 years and completed in 1524, this cathedral is a rather important destination in Munich. The cathedral has its fair share of history and drama. There is a perennial flow of wind near the church and this further accentuates the stories surrounding the footprint that is imprinted in a tile on the church’s foyer.
The Devil’s footprint is one of the main points of interest surrounding the church. There are numerous legends surrounding the church regarding how the devil himself had left the footprint and given rise to the perpetual winds that envelop the church. Also, unadorned and plain Gothic structure and the windowless architecture further fueled these stories.

My husband and I walked to the top of the church to take a view from above and it was absolutely worth it. MANY flights of stairs but there are small and few "benches" to take a break on. Do not be intimidated on the initial set of stairs!
It's a place in the inner center and a must see during a city tour. But it is definitely enough to take a picture outside. Nothing in comparison to Aachen or Cologne. Nice area around it.
Munich feels organized and demonstrates a very intuitive metro system. Once in the city central vicinity, everything is accessible on foot. Our first discovery day, we easily made our way to the Old Town with the help of Google maps. There's a story that left an imprint on us. We urge you to visit the church's foyer. There you will find a 'foot print' and the description of the legend. We encourage you to read on if you would like to know more about it. The legend states that it's the “Devil’s Footstep”. This is a black mark resembling a Devil’s footprint. It is said that long ago the devil visited the church and stood at this very spot. He curiously regarded the church and ridiculed the 'windowless' structure. More on our website! Serge 4 Eli 4
A beautiful church, which is made especially unique by its many stained glass windows. Hard to miss with its iconic towers, which are a landmark on the Munich landscape. However, it is even more beautiful on the inside. Although we did not climb the towers, we did hear that on sunny days, the Alps can be seen by going up to the top.
This landmark is the symbol of the capital of Bavaria and is located in the center of Munich. Built in 1494 this building is a beautiful spot to visit and you can even go up where you can have a nice view over the city. The cathedral itself is very beautiful.
