A Day at the Theatre (Church)

And to more pleasant images, a common view from the royal Hofgarten looking towards the Theatinerkirche or Theater Church. The church and the garden represent the tremendous Italian influence in Munich through its history. The Church was built in 1690, a process that took nearly 30 years, and created in Italian high-baroque. The dome and towers were added later and the façade was finally completed in 1768. The interior is a must for visitors to Munich. Amazing detail lines every spot in the Church which is lined with white stucco ornaments. You will also find much of the Wittlesbach family buried here, the royal court which led Bavaria for 750 years. The platz in front of the charge – Odeonsplatz – is the site of many cultural events throughout the year.
