The Asamkirche is an 18th century Late Baroque and Rococo church in Munich built by sculptor Egid Quirin Asam and his brother, painter Cosmas Damian Asam, as their private spiritual space. Squeezed between the adjacent buildings on Sendlingerstraße, the façade features a wooden portal flanked by columns, over which is monumental statue of St. Johann Nepomuk to whom the church is dedicated. The awe-inspiring interiors are covered in art, with magnificent frescoes and intricate sculptures. Highlights include the ceiling fresco of Life of Saint Nepomuk, sculptural ensemble of the Holy Trinity, and the spiral columns of the high altar inspired by Bernini's Solomonic columns of St Peter's in Rome.
