With its onion-shaped towers, their green domes, the Devil´s Footstep and the view of the Alps, the imposing Late Gothic landmark at the Marienplatz in Munich is unparalleled. The cathedral was built by the Archbishop of Munich and Freising in 1468–1494. Despite its capacity for 20,000 people, the place of worship shows an unusual “less is more” attitude. The 3 aisle brick construction, with choir stalls that are quintuple-cornered, houses the family vault of the Wittelsbach Elector family. It is not only the 100-metre onion domes, the numerous chapels and the precious artistic treasures that make this beautiful yet modest church special. Included among its legendary attractions are the Devil’s Footstep near the entrance and the fantastic view of Munich all the way to the Alps, which is available to anyone who climbs the southern tower.
