"Is it real? Amazing fairy-tale church" Asam Church Tip by Landotravel
Asam Church, Munich: 31 reviews and 60 photos
This church of Johann Nepomuk or the church of Asam is a real jewel of Rococo made at XVIIIth century. Made by the Asam brothers as a particular church it was later opened to the public. It is between the Asam's house and the Priest's house, at Sedlinger strasse, a central part in the city.
From the facade to the irreal inner all this astounding building seems like a fairy-tale one. You have to blink your eyes to realize it is authentic, it's not a dream!. Photos can't show the real thing for the optic effect is superb, never seen in other kind of architecture. Another jewel in this surprising city. In the upper facade the hanging stucco seems to be floating in the air and in the inner you see three different levels up, one over one towards the ceiling in a 3D effect increased by the extension of the peripheral elements: the high altar top raises upwards while the borders of the different levels fold in and upwards like leaves in the air.
Precious, marvellous, are small adjectives to define this. A true MUST-SEE!
