Alter Peter II
Another look at Alter Peter including the gorgeous ceiling mural. The interior looks new, as it would since the church was rebuilt, but this doesn't detract from the experience. I wish I had visited the rococo-style Asamkirche as well. It was on my list, but we just ran out of time.
The oldest parish church in Munich, 1158. As time went by some more constructions of diferent styles were added to it. This church is also very outstanding for its tower and the original shape of the vault of it. If you look at the tower you'll be able to count up to 8 clock faces! You can go up to the top of it. Bad news! There is no elevator, so take it easy! That's 1.5 euros to make some exercise.
"Peterskirche" and "Alter Peter"
"Peterskirche" (Saint Peter's Church) is the oldest church in town, built in the 11th century! It's not really the prettiest one, however, you can climb up its tower, which is called "Alter Peter" (Old Peter) and enjoy a phenomenous view over town.

Peterskirche (St. Peter's Church): If you can handle the steep climb up a few hundred stairs, make sure to go to the observation deck of this downtown church.
Its convenient location right across the square from the Rathaus (town hall with the glockenspiel) ensures great views of the city. The cost is but a few euros and even the climb to the top is exciting in its own way.
The Churches of Munich begin with St. Peters, started in the 12th century by monks on the highest hill. Now it is surrounded by these 'younger' churches
The other St Peters...
You also should see St. Peters Cathedral and climb up the tower for a spectacular view of the city, the marienplatz, and the glockenspiel!! They say you can see the Alps on a clear day. We didn't, it was too cloudy:( The Frauenkirche(the twin domed cathedral not far from the Marienplatz) is also really neat and worth the climb.
Climb the 'Alter Peter' and...
Climb the 'Alter Peter' and enjoy the wonderful sight over the city!
Munich's oldest church steeple gives you in 300 steps height a unique and undisturbed sight over the town. It's worth the effort even on rainy days when you can't see the Alpes - I enjoyed it much more than the sight from the Frauenkirche...
Munichs best viewpoint
Though it looks rather modern from the outside, it is the oldest church in Munich, with a splendid baroque interior and the a viewing tower with great vistas over the Old Town of Munich!

Climb the tower in St Peter's church
St Peter's church right in the middle of the city has a tower with a viewing platform. The walk up is worth it for the magnificent views.
