PETERSKIRCHE

Munich, Germany

Peterskirche, Munich, Germany

Often referred to as “Alter Peter” (Old Peter) this is Munich’s oldest church. It’s origins date back to before Munich was founded. Over the centuries it has suffered from fires and modifications and its appearance is more in the way of simple Romanesque with touches of Gothic than its very early origins would suggest.

Pretty much everything was destroyed during World War II and the majority of what remains today is reconstructed including much of the interior decoration. The tower is still largely from the original church and visitors can climb it where great views can be had across Munich and south towards the Alps.
