Church of St. Johann Nepomuk

Sendlinger Straße 34
Munich, 80331, Germany
TEL: 49 89 236-87989

Also known as Asamkirche, the church at Christmas is a Baroque jewel redolent of pine boughs and frankincense. Little about the façade of the Asamkirche can prepare a visitor for what lies beyond its portals—a puzzle-box interior super-populated with gilded saints and skulls and hectic putti, with Madonnas and agonized Saviors and with memento mori like the twin skeletons with bony outstretched fingers holding the scales of judgment by a thread.
