St Peters Church

Built in 1180 on the site of a previous 8th century monastery, making it Munich's oldest parish church.

Three times in history the Church has seen damage - once in 1327 during a city fire which also affected other parts of Munich and in the 1600's when lightning hit the church's tower. It was then almost completely destroyed during World War 2, but was reconstructed to its original state by the residents of Munich in the years after the war.

The church's steeple, the Alte Peter (Old Peter) is a bigger attraction than the Church itself, drawing hundreds of visitors every day who climb to its 92m viewing platform to see the inner city from a different perspective.

Inside the church a series of murals can be found from Johann Zimmermann. Another interesting article within the smaller chapel is the gilded and gem studded skeleton of St Mundita.

The church is situated very close to Marienplatz and as such is certainly worth a small detour to see.
