The enormous, 15th-century Frauenkirche can hold about 20,000 people. It stands as a symbol of Bavaria's capital city and features a rich collection of artwork from the 14th to 18th centuries. In the nave, you'll find Gothic stained-glass windows and the tomb monument of Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV. Be sure to look for the curious black mark resembling a footprint near the church entrance. This "devil's footprint" survived World War II bombing. You can ask locals about the legends surrounding it. For views of Munich and the Alps, you can climb up the church's 99 m (325 ft) south tower.

The iconic double towered church that is a signature of the Munich skyline. We didn't go up the tower, since we had already gone up St. Peter's and were towered out, but it is still beautiful to marvel at the inside with its lovely chapels, then take a few selfies below the towers.
