This has got to be my favourite church in the city, just for the incredible detail of the interior and the sheer presence it has on the space around it.
The high altar holds a fresco from Caspar de Crayer (1646) showing an enthroned Mother Mary above an assortment of babies and holy men.
Leading luminaries of Bavaria's ruling Wittelsbach clan are buried underneath in the Fürstengruft (Royal crypt). Among them are Prince Elector Karl Theodor, King Max II, King Otto of Greece and Crown Prince Rupprecht.
