    Theatinerkirche

    We never had time to go in, but this wonderfully warm, yellow church, also known as St Catejan, charmed me. Modelled on a roman church in the 17th century, it is at its most beautiful when seen in sunshine from the top of one of the other churches in the city.

    Opposite the Hofgarten you will see the Theatinerkirche and the Feldherrnhalle (Commander's Hall). The Theatinerkirche (which is officially called the St. Kajetankirche) was donated to the Theatiner monks in 1662. Inside you will find the family crypt with sarcophaguses of several Bavarian electoral princes and kings.

    This Italian Baroque church came about because its founder, Princess Henriette Adelaide was a native of Turin, Italy and didn't think that Bavarian architects were up to snuff. So, she had a guy from Bologna named Agostino Barelli do the job.

    In my assessment, he did a decent job. The interior is striking only in that it is so darn white!! Everywhere you look, it's white! And, as you can tell from the picture, the outside is boldly yellow, another hint of Italian roots.

    Theatinerkirche or St. Kajetan is the beautiful yellow baroque church at Odeonsplatz. It was built to look a bit like the churches of Rome or Venice that's why it is one of the most beautiful churches in Munich. The inside with the big dome is worth a look as well!

    The architecture of this fine baroque church dates back to two Italians, Barelli and Zuccalli in the 17th century. Its Mediterranean appearance and yellow coloring is a spectacular site. Open daily 9am-7pm

    View of Theatinerkirche from Hofgarten

    The Theatinerkirche St. Kajetan was built in 1663-75 by Barelli, who used the St. Andrea della Valle iN Rome as the model. The dome and two towers and the center section of the façade were added later. The church contains the Fürstengruft (Prince’s Tomb), the burial place for many important members of the Wittelsbach family.

    Odeonsplatz, Munich

    This picture features the Theaterinerkirche, which is the most distinctive building in this part of town. It's at the bottom of Ludwigstrasse which takes you up to the bohemian part of Munich called Schwabing

    Theatinerkirche, Munich

    In the southwest corner of the Odeonplatz and next to the Feldherrnhalle is the beautiful Baroque Theatinerkirche (or St Cajetan), which ranks as one of Munich's most regal churches. Its golden-yellow towers and green copper dome are adding a welcome splash of colour to the city skyline.

    Again, modeled after a Roman edifice! This is a beautiful building, and you can't miss it. Make sure to go inside and admire all the impressive pieces there.

    Theatinerkirche

    Beautiful church in Munich. Also very famous; but not as much of a symbol of Munich as the Frauenkirche. Great view here from the Hofgarten. Great photograph spot.
