Get a close look at the impressive Late Baroque architecture and intricate detailing of Asamkirche. The tiny church was constructed as a private chapel in the mid-18th century. It features a beautiful main sanctuary of floor-to-ceiling frescoes and ornate Baroque decor. Note the magnificent wax statue of St. Johann Nepomuk in the pillar-enclosed high altar. Look up to see "Life of Saint Neopmuk," the ceiling fresco by Cosmas Daminan Asam. Next door to the church, you can stop by the Asam House to see its South German rococo stucco exterior and ornamentation. The Asam brothers acquired it in 1733.

1733～46年に芸術家で建築家のアザム兄弟が私財を投げうって家の敷地内に建てた教会。ゼントリンガー通りの中ほど，非常に狭い間口ですが，入ロの扉や屋根も凝っていて存在感があります。教会の正式名は，聖ヨハン･ネポムク教会といい，正面扉の上に聖ヨハン･ネポムクの像が立っています。8×22平方メートルという狭い敷地に建てられただけあって，中は非常にこじんまり。その中に様々な装飾が施され，とても教会とは... more »A church built on the grounds of a house in 1733-46 when the artist and architect Azam brothers threw their personal belongings. It is a very narrow frontage in the middle of Zentringer Street, but the door and the roof of Iriro are also elaborate and have a presence. The official name of the Church is St. Johann Nepomk's Church, and a statue of St. Johann Nepomuk stands on the front door. It was built on a small site of 8 x 22 square meters, and the inside is very small. Various decorations are applied in it, and the world of the color use which does not think that it is very church is developed. Because there was little lighting and dimness, I was a little disappointed that the artistry was difficult to understand.
we been walking around the area with lots of shops as well as churches near each other . this is a very small one and its worth a visit . lovely interior . more »
I went for participation in Mass, so I was not a tourist at that time, but it is beautiful to see. This church is very small. It has beautiful acoustics and the mass in Germany is still styled in the way of the German composers. The music suits the environment (at least at the mass we went to). If you go, please consider giving a donation, these churches need preservation from their age.
It's a really understated church, which is surprising considering its decor but unsurprising considering you walk up, look through bars at it, and leave. I insisted on coming here because I love Baroque architecture and while there's little to do, there's plenty to see. It almost felt surreal, it was so grand. The only way to get a decent look at anything is to zoom in on your camera, so bring your binoculars if you're interested in being mindblown for 5 solid minutes. I wish it was more inviting to visitors, but I understand why it's not. For anyone not interested in architecture or the baroque art style, I'm sure it would be a meh experience. For me, I loved every second of it.
