Munich Altstadt's Churches

Though one of the smallest, the 1746 baroque church Asamkirche has to be the artistic gem of the city. It is amazingly decorated by its creators, two brothers, who are also responsible for the frescos at other churches in Munich. Most of the other churches are also well decorated, and although their paintings are rather drab their frescos usually make up for it.

The best view of the city, that was open at least, was St. Peterskirche (which is also the oldest church), whose 90 odd meter tower provides for wonderful views; at a cost of 1.50 Euros and a lot of effort in climbing a single file staircase.
