The main church in Munich, Frauenkirche, is located in Frauenplatz near Marienplatz in the center of the city. Two 99-meter towers of the church have largely determined the look of today's Munich. The church was built between 1468 and 1488 in the Baroque style and is considered one of the best examples of the Bavarian architecture. By the way, not everyone is equally positive about the beauty of Frauenkirche. Some visitors consider the church too gloomy inside. However, in any case, the church is definitely worth visiting and making your own opinion about its look.
North of Marienplatz is the location of the Residence, a large complex of buildings constructed by the Vittelbachs, a family that brought fame and prosperity to Munich. The construction was carried out up to the XVIII century. After World War II the areas, which had been damaged severely, were rebuilt. Currently, the former ducal palace has become home to a number of museums (the Museum of Ancient Coins and Porcelain), a large concert hall and a small theater. Without a doubt, the Residence museum and treasury are also worth your closest attention.
