"Frauenkirche" Frauenkirche - Cathedral Church of Our Lady Tip by Kuznetsov_Sergey

  Munich - Frauenkirche
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The most known symbol of Munich - Frauenkirche Cathedral. This building has the rich history closely connected with Vittelsbach and with their desire to create own crypt. The preceded significant building of first half XIII century was followed since 1468 with new construction.
The assignment was given to Jorg fon Halspah. He built huge building Frauenkirche (109 meters at length and 40 meters at width) in the shortest terms in brick performance. After a bookmark of the first stone in 1468 duke Sigizmund and bishop Johannes Tulbek in 1494 it was probably solemn consecration of church. But towers were built only in 1525. The building with three naves with polygonal choruses quite corresponds to traditions south-German constructions.
