The Theatinerkirche (Theatine Church) in Munich is a historic Catholic church that was founded by Elector Ferdinand Maria and his wife, Henriette Adelaide of Savoy in the late seventeenth century. The unique architecture of the Italian-Baroque style building, bright white arches and glowing rotundas, was actually built in celebration of the birth of the royal couple’s heir. Tourists that visit the Theatinerkirche will be drawn to the golden exterior along with the unique décor of the inside of this church, made entirely of white stucco. The church even holds the remains of some members of the royal family in its crypt, including those mentioned above.
- Make your way over to the nearby Feldherrnhalle Military Commanders Hall to see the sculptures that are a tribute to the Bavarian army; this historic landmark was built in Munich during the eighteenth century.
- Visit the Residenz Palace when you’re done taking a tour of the Theatinerkirche—the Residenz Palace was once home to the Bavaria’s monarchs for over five centuries (the building also features a museum with legendary art works).
- Spend some time at Munich’s Biergarten Chinesischer Turm; this area is known for its beer gardens and tasty Bavarian cuisine.
