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.

Cathedral Of Our Lady, Munich Reviews - Write a Review
If you are in Munich - definitely pay the few Euros per person to walk to the top of the dome. It gives you an excellent view of the city, especially in the late afternoon.
It is nice to visit this, the outside and the inside are both very lovely. Also it is one of the most important buildings in Munich with a rich history, which makes it worth to visit and learn more about it.
The two unique onion domes of this cathedral are a symbol of the city of Munich. The building is bustling with tourists, and is currently undergoing renovations outdoors. Inside the church is sparingly decorated, with the gothic arches soaring to the heavens. From the vestibule, only the stained glass behind the altar is visible, since the pillars obscure the other windows. There is a "devil's footprint" in one of the floor tiles here. The crypt houses some members of the Wittelsbach family. Try to enjoy some serenity here, and realize that the building was spared being bombed, since the pilots used it as a marker.
Simple yet pretty. I found the glass work to be quite different from other churches I have visited in Europe, which was interesting. It's worth a visit if you are close by.
Get up on the tower for an amazing view (either her or townhall).
