Mixing the Gothic and the Rococo, this is without a doubt one of the city's most distinctive churches
Fans of religious architecture will love Munich for its variety of styles and epochs, and the Asamskirche, built in the 1740s, is one of the most important and impressive. Its actual name is St. John Nepomuk, but everyone has always referred to it by the name of its popular and well known architects, a pair of brothers. These guys pulled out all the stops here, with a narrow, elongated façade blending Gothic with over-the-top Rococo. Above the entryway you can see various scenes from the life of the Bohemian saint, including his murder by drowning. The interior is just as extravagant. Well worth a visit.
