Asam Church, Munich: 31 reviews and 60 photos

  the facade of Asamhouse
by globetrott
 
 

In 1729 E.Q.Asam bought 4 houses in Sendlingerstrasse.
The one on my picture was used as the private house of the Asam-brothers and was decorated in their typical Roccoco style.
the 3 other houses were rebuilt as the St.Johann Nepomuk church and the house of the priest.

Both brothers became very rich with their work and finally owned several houses in Munich.

The small pic looks a bit confusing , BUT when you click on my pic , you will see the many great stucco-works on the facade !

Address: Sendlingerstrasse 62
