Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady (Frauenkirche) Tours

star-3.5
15 Reviews
Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady (Frauenkirche)
A Munich landmark, the Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady (Frauenkirche) features two 325-foot (99-meter) towers topped by spherical domes. According to local ordinance, no other building in the city may be taller than this, preserving the cathedral’s central position on the skyline of Bavaria’s capital.

The Basics
Visible from all over Munich, the Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady is a must-see attraction—whether you want to tour the interior or attend a service. Climb 86 steps and then take an elevator to the top of the south tower for unparalleled views of Munich.

Most Munich city tours include a stop at the cathedral and nearby Marienplatz—the city’s main square. Many WWII history tours also visit the church, which was damaged during the war. Full-day tours from Frankfurt typically include a visit to the cathedral along with other Munich highlights, and some day trips also include a visit to the nearby city of Nuremberg.

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • The Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady is a must-see for history buffs and first-time visitors to Munich.
  • Admission to the church is free.
  • The main church is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers, but the tower is not.

How to Get There
The Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady is located just off busy Marienplatz, in Munich’s city center. While guided tours provide easy transportation, it’s also possible to take tram 19 to Marienplatz (Theatinerstrasse), or take the S- or U-bahn to Karlsplatz and walk 10 minutes from there.

When to Get There 
The cathedral is open daily from 7:30am to 8:30pm. Services include morning and evening mass and midday prayers, and though you may not explore the church during services, all are welcome to attend. The church frequently hosts concerts and organ recitals, which may require paid admission.

The Devil’s Mark 
Legend has it that the Devil made a deal with Frauenkirche architect Jörg Halspach—that he would pay for the church if the builder didn’t put windows in it. When Lucifer came to inspect the building, he stamped his foot in fury at being hoodwinked, leaving a large footprint on the floor. Look for der Teufelstritt at the entrance to the Frauenkirche.
Address: Frauenplatz 1, Munich 80331, Germany
Admission: Free

Munich - the essential walking tour

Munich - the essential walking tour

star-5
During this walking tour in the old city, the political and social developments of Munich (dating from the 12th century to today) come alive. You will see fabulous examples of late Baroque architecture in southern Germany (18th-19th century). Juxtaposed with these are the squares on which Hitler's National Socialist Party began and later on demonstrated their dictatorial power in their so-called “City of the Movement”. But we will also not disregard cultural and economic life in Munich, like its breweries, the beer garden and some of its world famous companies.
