Climbing Ivy

Inside the Frauenkirche, you can hold 20,000 people. It’s among the largest hall churches in southern Germany. Although most of it was destroyed during WWII, the space has a certain presence to it. It is very modern, but you can see the amazing history hanging outside its walls, or in this case in the stained glass that lines it windows. Construction of the church commenced in 1468, and the icon towers were added in 1488. The city of Munich passed a provision that no building would exceed 100 meters in the center of town, so it will continue to be the symbol of Munich.
