Asamkirche Munich

The Asam Church, or the Church of St. Johann Nepomuk, is not one of Munich's oldest churches, but probably one of its most ornate. Built by the Asam brothers in 1733, it was originally intended to be used as their private church, but after complaints from the public, they were forced to open it up to everyone.

The church is a fine example of late baroque or rocco architecture. Above the entrance to the church stands St. Nepomuk, a 14th-century monk who was known to perform many noble and charitable deeds.

Inside the church are many frescoes and gilded statues and the ceiling is decorated by impressive gold trimmed paintings.

Beside the church is the original house of the Asam brothers. From this house, a view of the alter can be seen.

Particularly impressive is the way light has been used the design of the Church. The best time to appreciate it in this light is in the morning.
