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.

  • 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.
  • If you want to see a small Gem but full of Baroque architecture from the 1700's then you came to the right place. you can start from the ceiling till the walls and the internal/external entrance. everything was just amazing to see with so much gold color and details in every cm in the church. on your way from sendlinger tor till marienplatz.
  • Façade tucked away in a contemporary shopping district but step inside to see the glory. Take pictures but please abide by the no food or drink in this compact sanctuary. I sat in one of the 25 or so single row pews to meditate and take in the gold, dark woods and ornate alter. Even the narthex has meditative art!
  • Mass starts at 10am and is fairly well visited. The Mass is in German and there are song books available. The numbers of the songs are posted before each mass on the board. The organist is very talented and sometimes continues to play after the Mass has ended. The church is used for Mass from 10am-11:15am, so if you are visiting during that time, be mindful that this church is actively used by the Catholic congregation in Munich.
