St Pauls Church, Munich, Bavaria, Germany

Scroll down to content

 St. Paul (Paulskirche) Catholic Church was the last church that we explored on our visit to Munich in 2016.  We were passing the church on our way to the Oktoberfest, and of course we just popped into to have a quick look.  Built between 1892 and 1906 in the neo-Gothic Style gives the building quite a different feel to the others we had visited. The large interior is relatively plain and unfussy, having been remodelled in the mid 20 century, due to heavy bomb damage in 1944.  

With its 320 feet tall main tower, the church is not only one of the highest, but also “one of the most powerful religious buildings in Munich”   Unfortunately the church was covered in scaffolding  in 2015 and 2016, but I did find a photo from 2013 minus scaffolding that I took from that years Oktoberfest.  The gargoyles are wonderful, some are quite scary, you can see them after the photos of the interior.
