Fodor's Expert Review Dreifaltigkeitskirche

Altstadt Historical
Free

Built to commemorate Bavaria's part in the War of Spanish Succession, further motivation for the construction of this church was a prophecy from the devout Maria Anna Lindmayr that if the city survived the war intact and a church was not erected in thanks, the city was doomed. The city was saved and a church was built between 1711 and 1718. It has a striking baroque exterior, and its interior is brought to life by frescoes by Cosmas Damian Asam depicting various heroic scenes. Remarkably, it is the only church in the city's Altstadt spared destruction in the war.
