Full description

Join a private guide on the streets of Munich's Old Town and take a tour of its most remarkable churches: St. Peter's Church, Frauenkirche, Asamkirche, and St. Michael's Church. Select the 5-church tour option to also include Theatine Church and St. Peter's viewing terrace.

Begin your walking tour at Marienplatz where you'll find the New Town Hall, the golden Mariensäule statue, and the Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall). Meet your licensed guide and prepare to explore centuries of sacred art and architecture.

From the bustling square, step inside the oldest church in the city, St. Peter's Church to discover its treasures. See the ornate high altar, the 14 stations of the cross, and the jeweled skeleton of St. Mundita.

Continue along the cobblestoned streets of the Old Town as your guide tells you about the important role Munich’s churches and cathedrals play in protecting the city’s historical and cultural heritage. Arrive at Asamkirche and admire its baroque interior swathed in gold leaf, frescoes, and stucco.

Another must-see church on this tour is St. Michael's Church, the largest Renaissance church north of the Alps, which contains church crypts with tombs of Eugène de Beauharnais and notable people from Bavaria.

The final stop on the 4-church tour will be at the monumental Frauenkirche, also known as the Munich Cathedral. Inside, marvel at soul-inspiring Gothic interiors and learn about the 1945 bombings and the legendary Devil’s footprint.

If you choose the 5-church option, continue on from Frauenkirche to discover a hidden gem among Munich’s churches — the fabulous Theatine Church (Theatinerkirche) at the historic Odeonsplatz.

Don't be fooled by Theatine Church's plain, yellow, Rococo-style facade: inside you'll find an impressive interior featuring a high altar, sculptured columns, statues, and stucco. 

The 5-church option also includes a visit to St. Peter’s Church Tower, which offers the best panoramic views of the city. On good weather days, you can even see the Alps.
