The “German” Rome

The Duchy of Bavaria had been a fortress against the doctrines of Martin Luther and his protestant movement. The Bavarian dukes built these marvellous churches to transform Munich into a German Rome, a splendid centre of Catholicism. Many of the Munich churches are the glorious result of this effort.

We can visit the following churches:

  • The “Alter Peter” – first Munich church on the “Petersbergerl”
  • The “Frauenkirche” – the town’s landmark
  • The “Michaelskirche” – a stronghold against the protestant danger and the first renaissance-church north of the Alps
  • The “Theatinerkirche” – the first Italian baroque style church in Bavaria
  • The “Asamkirche” – one of the most beautiful churches in rococo-style
