Frauenkirche, Munich Overview

The "Dom zu unserer Lieben Frauî or (ñCathedral of Our Dear Ladyî) is a symbol of Munich.

Not far from the centrally located Marienplatz, in Munich's Old Town, stands Frauenkirche. Its onion domed twin towers dominate the skyline, as no other building in the central city is as tall. This late Gothic brick structure has even wider acclaim since by way of a referendum Munchners voted to restrict all new buildings to a height lesser than that of the twin towers, for all buildings in the city's middle ring road. The church suffered heavy destruction during the Second World War and was restored over the years. An intriguing feature in this church is the Teufelstritt (Devil's Footprint), which is a large imprint of a foot with lores attached to it, best told by the locals. The cathedral houses a black marble tomb, the resting place of Emperor Ludwig of Bavaria, amidst other treasures. You can climb up to the Observation Platform of the South Tower for a magnificent view of the city.
