For a spectacular view of the surrounding city and the distant Alps, climb to the top of St. Peter's Church. This is the oldest church in the inner city. It was built during the Romanesque period on the site of an ancient monastic settlement. The building suffered extensive fire damage in 1327 and was expanded and re-consecrated in 1368. In the early 17th century, the 92 m (302 ft) spire received its Renaissance steeple top. A new Baroque choir was also added. Inside, look at the high altar for the figure of Saint Peter, created by sculptor Erasmus Grasser. Among other masterpieces, you'll find five Gothic paintings by artist Jan Polack and ceiling frescos by painter Johan Baptist Zimmermann.

St. Peter's Church Reviews
１１世紀からあるミュンヘンで最も古い教会、中に入ると祭壇の上の聖ペーター像とパイプオルガンに目を引き付けられました。残念ながら塔に入場する時間がなく、大得意の階段上りができませんでした。 more »The oldest church in Munich, from the 11th century, was attracted to the st. Peter statue and pipe organ on the altar. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to enter the tower, so I couldn't go up the stairs.
Здание собора за свою историю неоднократно перестраивалось вобрав в себя разные архитектурные стили. Особое внимание здесь заслуживает интерны купол колокольни в виде фонаря. Кстати на колокольню можн... more »The building of the cathedral during its history has been repeatedly rebuilt with different architectural styles. Special attention here deserves the interna dome of the bell tower in the form of a lantern. By the way, you can climb the bell tower to admire the panorama of the city from the observation deck. The interior of the church is decorated in a luxurious Baroque style.
Relatively interesting architecture on the outside and very interesting on the inside. Construction began in the 11th century on the site of an old wooden church. From time to time, something happened to the church, and restoration work changed it's style several times (Romanesque, Gothic, Rococo). During the last war, it suffered very much and restoration work lasted until 2000.
Fantastic of you on the top of the tower, you do have to climb a lot on the stairs, but well worth it. Take a break when you can. The platform on the top is a bit narrow, lots of people gathering around the side facing marientplaza. The church interiors and exterior are beautiful.
