St Peter's Church, Munich

This Gothic basilica (13C) was given a Baroque facelift in the 17 and 18C. A statue of St Peter (1493) stands on the main altar. Underneath stand the statues of the four fathers of the Church (1732). The belltower (1386) is called «Old Peter». Climb the 306 steps up and you will be rewarded with a lovely view of the town.
