Create an itinerary including Frauenkirche
Erected on the eastern side of the city's main market, Frauenkirche was constructed in the 14th century, and massive restoration projects inside the cathedral have given the Middle Age sculptures new life. One of these works of art is the Tucher Altar, crafted in 1440. An eye-catching feature of the church is the Männleinlaufen, a mechanical clock that commemorates the 14th century Golden Bull. Charles IV, the Holy Roman Emperor, is pictured on the clock with his prince-electors surrounding him.
