Munich: A City of Towers

Munich is filled with towers of all types. Clocks, church steeples, clocks and church steeples, and columns are everywhere. Here's a few from Munich. Enjoy!

St. Mary stands on a column overlooking Marienplatz. In the background are the twin towers of the Frauenkirche, one of Munich's most prominent landmarks. The "onion" domes are typical of Renaissance architecture.

The tower of the Munich Neus Rathaus (New City Hall) is the tallest in the city.

Peterkirche (St. Peter's) Church tower with observation deck is Munich's oldest building. It was begun in the 11th century and the structure as it stands was remodelled in the 17th century in the Rococo style.

This clock towers can be found in the middle of the Residenz, the home of the Bavarian royalty from the 14th century.
