1. Asam ChurchAsam Church

The Asam Church is a Baroque church in Munich, built from 1733 to 1746 by brothers, sculptor Egid Quirin Asam, and painter Cosmas Damian Asam as their private church. It is one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen in person and it’s completely free to go in. It’s near Marienplatz.

München Residenz is a place like no other – once the royal palace of Bavarian monarchs, it now stands as one of Germany’s most visited museums. Admired for its epic architecture and ornate interior design, visitors from around the globe flock to experience this slice of history first-hand! Like many places in Munich it was bombed and has been rebuilt. Book a private tour.
