St. Peter's Church (Alter Peter), Munich

This beautiful church in the centre of Munich offers views over the city from its spire.

St Peter’s church (Alter Peter) is an essential visit. It is right next to Marienplatz and will not take you too long to look round. The interior of the church strikes the balance between understatement and grandeur. Statues of saints line the interior and restored fresco ceiling looms above. If you explore carefully, you will even find the skeleton of Saint Munditia, lying in its own glass ossuary, in one of the church’s alcoves. You should also definitely go up the church’s tower. It offers brilliant views of Munich in all directions which are well worth the lengthy climb up its staircase.
