EMBLEMATIC: Munich just wouldn't be Munich
without the Frauenkirche! Photo by th0mi.
A symbol of the Devil lurks within Munich’s greatest church.
This cathedral’s two onion-domed towers are so much a part of Munich’s image that they’ve become the symbol of the city.
In fact, no building is allowed to be built higher than their 99m for fear of ruining the city's skyline.
