Altar in the choir of the Cathedral of Munich

Image of the altar in the choir of the Cathedral of Munich - Our Lady is the largest church in Munich


The Frauenkirche was built in red brick in late Gothic style. Its dimensions are 109 meters by 40. The two towers reach 99 meters in height, with one tower greater than the other of 12 centimeters. The original design provided sharp arrows to complete the towers, as did Cologne Cathedral, but they were never built for lack of money. Instead, both domes were built during the Renaissance, and some find them ill-suited stylistically to the rest of the building. Yet they are today the symbol of Munich. The shape of the dome in the architectural vocabulary of the time is a figuration of the heavenly Jerusalem.

The cathedral is in the form of a three-nave hall-church, the last of the churches of this style to have been built in the city of Wittelsbach. With a volume of 200,000 m3, Our Lady of Munich is the largest Gothic brick church north of the Alps1, St. Mary's Church of Gdańsk has only 155,000 m3. © Photo of Emmanuel Buchot
