The Frauenkirche is located not far from the Marienplatz in the centre of the city – at the Frauenplatz. It has two 99-meter towers that, actually, influence a lot the modern outlook of modern Munich. The church was built in 1468-1488 in the baroque style and is considered to be one of the masterpieces of architecture of those times. By the way, not all the people find it so attractive, some think it's too gloomy, especially inside. But in any case, it's worth looking at with your own eyes and making your personal impression of the church.
To the north of the Marienplatz takes place the Residence. It's the big complex, built by the Wittelsbachers, who brought prosperity and fame to Munich. The building works lasted till the 18th century. After the Second World War the ruined part were scrupulously restored. Nowadays in the former Duke's palace you'll find a number of museums (The Museum of ancient Coins and China), the huge concert hall and a small theatre. You may also get interested by the Residence Museum and the treasury.
