Church Of Our Lady

History

The Frauenkirche or Church of Our Lady, is Munich’s main cathedral and with its distinctive twin towers, is also one of the main landmarks in the city. The Frauenkirche, which stands today, replaced an earlier church of the 13th century being built in 1468-88 under the direction of the German architect Jorg von Halsbach. This brick-built Gothic church is 109 meter (358 ft) long and 40 meter (131 ft) wide. The two towers, which are topped by with onion domes rear up to a height of 99 meter are its unique feature. One of the two towers can be ascended, and the view from the top is truly panoramic. The cathedral was severely damaged at the end of the Second World War. After the war the church was refurbished by 1953. The interiors of the church were originally designed as a late gothic church with a long central nave. Though a large number of interior decoration was lost during the air raids of 1944, some of the historic works of art are still kept unharmed in the church.
