Cathedral Of Our Lady - Review
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.
One of the most imposing and prominent structures of Munich, the Cathedral of Our Lady is an attraction not to be missed.

Cathedral Of Our Lady, Munich Reviews
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.
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
It was hard to see the perfect shape of the cathedral because it was on construction. However, it was quite tall building and every hour the bell rings approximately for a minute. There is little pond(?) that people can enjoy the shade under the tree with cool wind.
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.
Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche) is the largest Gothic style building in southern Germany and a neat place to visit during visits to Munich. Unfortunately, there is restoration work taking place at the moment with the exterior facade of Frauenkirche, obscuring views of the towers from the outside. From streets to the east of the church, you can see the towers decently, allowing you to better appreciate their size, scale and architecture. The rest of the church exterior is nice to view from ground level by simply walking around the building. Expected Gothic architecture on display when it comes to the interior of Frauenkirche. You'll find a narrow and tall nave with a vaulted ceiling. There are some very nice stained-glass windows, wooden altars, choir stalls and carved statues, including the Statue of St. Christopher. We really liked seeing the Memminger Altar and attractive fresco of Mother Mary in the Chorhaupkapelle behind the main altar. Do also give a few minutes viewing the impressive tomb of Emperor Ludwig IV of Bavaria in the back of the church as well. In the end, we enjoyed our visit to Frauenkirche. It is an interesting Gothic church conveniently located in the Old Town near other important attractions in Munich. You can have a good visit experience here in 20-30 minutes before moving on to other sightseeing endeavours.
