Cathedral dedicated to Our Lady

View of Munich

Over the years the cathedral has undergone a number of modifications. The two onion-domed towers that are now such a landmark and that differ in height by just 12 centimetres, were added at a later date. The very best vista of both the city of Munich and even the Alps can be enjoyed from the top of the south tower that is open from April to October from Monday to Sunday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Today, the church has seating for a congregation of 20,000. The cathedral is also loved for its beautiful acoustics that make concerts held there particularly pleasurable. In the entrance to the cathedral is the famous Devil’s Footprint (Teufelstritt) that is steeped in ancient myth dating way back to the origins of time.

Opening times: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Fridays it closes at 6 p.m. On Thursdays it is open until 8.30 p.m.
