Top places you must visit in Munich
The Chinese Beer Garden, which can hold 6,000 people, is the most famous attraction in the park. But there are many other things you can do in the park. We love to watch the surfers take on the waves at TheEisbach River This is something that you rarely see in the middle of a big city. It is perfectly legal to sunbathe in parts of the English Garden so don’t be surprised to see people enjoying the park. The park is a wonderful place to recharge and rest your batteries, no matter what you call it.
We love the charming as am Brothers’ Church in Munich. It is one of Munich’s best-kept secrets and our favorite church to visit. Officially called Saint Johann Nipomo Church the church was built to be a showcase for the as am Brothers, who lived next door. Often considered the Master of the Rocco movement the church building brothers displayed their work to potential clients from across Europe. Although the property was only 30 feet in width, it had an extremely extravagant interior. The church is truly an art piece, with its dark and flowing features and golden accents. The Eye of God, a bright yellow oval-shaped window that is above the altar, is our favorite feature. Imagine the impact it had upon potential clients who saw it for the first-time.
The Wittelsbach family, which ruled Bavaria for more than 750 years and was Holy Roman Emperors during that time, amassed a wealth of art and wealth. King Ludwig I built a massive art complex in the 1800s to house the vast collection of paintings belonging to the Royal family. The Pinakothek building was opened in 1836 and became the biggest museum in the world. One of the galleries was constructed to house Rubens’s 1617 “Last Judgment”, which was one the largest canvasses ever created.
Today, the Alter Pinakothek is the Wittelsbach’s first major museum. It focuses on Old Master painters. The Pinakothek was later expanded to include the Neue Pinakothek, which covers the 1800s painters, and the Pinakothek Modern, which covers contemporary art after 1960. The museums are a treasure trove of art that is worthy of a King. Saint Peter’s Church, the oldest church in town, predates the city itself. A small group of monks established a modest monastery and chapel on the hill, which they named Saint Peter’s Hill in the 800s. This was the first time that Munich was established. The name Munched literally derives from Munch, which is the German word meaning monk. Although the church’s tower was rebuilt several times, it was also home to Munich’s first public clock. If you’re willing to climb 306 steps, you can get a stunning view of Munich from the fire balcony you want. On clear days, you can even see the Olympic Stadium and distant sights to North.
The church you don’t want to miss
You should see the beautiful interior of St Peter’s Church, including its gold-laced giant Alter and even a Skeleton. You’re correct, there is a Reliquary that contains a variety of bones/skulls as well as the comical, gemstone-covered skeleton Saint Munities. Her remains were decorated in 1675 and finally displayed here after she was made a martyr for the faith in 310AD. This odd collection is fitting, as Munich is believed to have the most relics of any city other than Rome.
It is easy to overlook the elements that are dedicated to Saint Peter above the altar and on top of the ceiling because they are so prominent. The ceiling painting depicts Saint Peter being upside-down crucified on Vatican Hill in Rome. This was a pivotal point for Catholicism’s growth. These are often overlooked features that make the church one of the top ten things you can do in Munich.
Bavaria’s Royal Wittelsbach families built the huge Nymphenburg Palace, Munich’s West side, in 1664 as their country home. Although Munich has seen a lot of growth over the years, it was still considered rural when the estate was constructed. Prince Max Emanuel made the manor a vast estate with his greatest expansions in 1700. He added large wings with mural-filled salon rooms to each side, and also added a French formal park. Around the grounds, several royal pavilions were added. The Hall of Mirrors, as well as the elegant Royal Hunting Lodge (Amalienburg), were two of these pavilions. They were built in Rococo-style and constructed in 1734. You will find cubicles for hunting dogs to sleep in if you look carefully at the lodge’s floor.
The Grand Hall
In the middle of the 1700s, the central portion of the house was transformed into the Grand Hall with extravagant decorations. This decoration included hidden musical instruments that were used to stage concerts. Johann Zimmermann, a famous baroque artist spent 10 months on his back painting the ceiling of the main hall. The Grand Hall is a magnificent place, but our favorite part of the Palace is the Carriage House. The Carriage House is located at the property’s far end and houses a large collection gilded royal stagecoaches and carriages as well as sleighs. You can visit and explore this amazing place with a Munich Escort by your side as a companion. The Carriage House’s second floor houses a Porcelain Museum that focuses on dishes created over 300 years ago in the family’s porcelain factory.
Odeonplatz Square was created in 1616 when the city walls were extended outward. It is surrounded with a variety of great sights. The largest open-air, 4-column gallery that caps the square is called “The Ambassador”. Field Marshall’s Hall (Feldherrnhalle)… Ludwig I built the gallery in 1841. It is modeled on the Loggia die Laze, Florence. The gallery was intended to honor the commanders in the Bavarian Army. The Field Marshall’s Hall became famous after Hitler’s failed revolution in 1923.Beer Hall Putsch was thwarted here.
The bright yellow Saint Caveman de Thieve Church can be seen looking down from the Field Marshall Hall. After a decade of trying to find an heir, the church was built in 1663. It is one of our favorite European interiors and very unique. The Theatinerkirche is adorned with elaborate vine and shell decorations, as well as a multitude of winged angle figures that look like children. __S.142__ it was first opened with the Medieval Schwa binger City Gate, which was demolished in 1800. The square also provides great access to Hofgarden Royal Park.
