Frauenkirche

Originally built in the 12th century, still serving as the parish church for the Munich diocese and sporting two iconic copper-domed towers, the late Gothic-style Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) symbolizes many things: Bavaria’s Catholic heritage, the Munich city skyline and the city’s attempts to rebuild after World War II. The cathedral itself underwent painstaking reconstruction as much of it was destroyed during the war. Make sure to step into the “devil’s footstep” at the entrance, creating a view of the interior without windows.
