St. Michael

Built in the 16th century, this church is dedicated to the Archangel Michael and its architectural style dates back to the time of transition between Renaissance and Baroque. Numerous architectural ideas were inspired by “Il Gesù”, the Roman mother church of the Jesuit order. As a result, the Munich Church of St. Michael, which also was an eminent bastion of the Catholic Counterreformation, became the model for many Baroque churches in the German-speaking regions.
