Create an itinerary including Asamkirche
Get a close look at the impressive Late Baroque architecture and intricate detailing of Asamkirche. The tiny church was constructed as a private chapel in the mid-18th century. It features a beautiful main sanctuary of floor-to-ceiling frescoes and ornate Baroque decor. Note the magnificent wax statue of St. Johann Nepomuk in the pillar-enclosed high altar. Look up to see "Life of Saint Neopmuk," the ceiling fresco by Cosmas Daminan Asam. Next door to the church, you can stop by the Asam House to see its South German rococo stucco exterior and ornamentation. The Asam brothers acquired it in 1733.

  • If entrance to Heaven is dependent upon church decoration then the Asam brothers have it made! Stunning but a little "Over The Top".

  • This place is 110% over the top baroque. The brothers that built this church really wanted to show off. Please pop in for a visit. It’s absolutely stunning. You’ll never be able to see all the details. There is so much to see
  • Asamkirche is one of the smallest, yet most impressive, baroque churches in Old Munich. Its small facade integrates well with the buildings around it on Sendlinger Strasse. Enter the building to be amazed by the excesses of baroque architecture and art. There literally isn't an inch that is empty of ornament.
