St. Michael’s Church

Neuhauser Str. 6, 80333 München, Germany

This 16th century church is in downtown Munich, and, other than its amazing architecture and ceiling paintings, it is also where King Ludwig II of Bavaria rests. The mad king drowned in 1886, close to his fairy tale castle Neuschwanstein. The interior is breathtaking, as you can see! The crypt also holds six other local royals.
