Frauenkirche 3.5 rating

  Cultural Attractions

The Catholic Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady is the seat of the Archbishop and the largest church in Munich. Built over 20 years starting in 1468, the cathedral was damaged by World War II bombings and rebuilt in 1945. The Late Gothic style construction in red brick features a simple façade flanked by 2 towers which are topped by Renaissance domes. The iconic towers are a symbol of Munich, and stand out in the skyline. The north tower has 3 bells including the mammoth 8000 kg Susanna, while the south tower has 7. The south tower is open to public and offers panoramic views over Munich extending upto the Alps on a clear day. The entrance of the church features the legendary Teufelstritt or devil’s footprint on the floor tile, from where none of the church windows are visible.

The interiors feature a good collection of art from the 14thto 18thcenturies. The crypt has the tombs of the House of Wittelsbach and Archbishops of Munich, including those of Emperor Ludwig, King Ludwig III, and Duke William III.
